The House Of Pucci: Emilio Pucci 2013
I've always been a big fan of Emilio Pucci. I remember being young and lusting after a silk scarf with that signature geometric print. I remember not knowing the correct pronunciation and uttering what sounded like an inappropriate word coming from a young girl's mouth. This morning, I was looking at the Spring/Summer 2013 line and flashed back to a beautiful gown I saw last Spring. If you are not familiar with Pucci, think: clothing for the woman that loves to bare as much as possible without arrests of indecent exposure.

This year we see more cut-outs, more lace, more of that Pucci-esque geometry. I'm not a huge fan of Beyonce' however, the black velvet Pucci gown she wore for the Presidential Inauguration was to die for. This piece is from the 2013 Pre-Fall Collection. Peter Dundas, the Artistic Director behind the House of Pucci, says his inspiration for the Fall line is Mia Farrow as Daisy Buccanan. “I’d forgotten what a great look she had: something so innocent, yet at the same time a little perverse.” said Dundas
