Peter Dundas has created yet another opulent Emilio Pucci collection for Spring 2013 which will be adored by his celebrity fans.
Last season the designer gave us a Spanish flavour; this time the collection was steeped in Asian cultural influences.
I loved the bomber jackets emblazoned with embroidered dragons which were long enough to wear as mini dresses. Gold dragon embroidery also adorned black silky kimono-style pyjamas, which would make for a very interesting red-carpet look.
On a colour palette that was mostly white, with black, green, red and one single electric-blue embroidered bomber jacket paired with a fitted skirt, we also saw Chinese jackets featuring traditional knot closures, red-carpet-worthy gowns, leather jackets and tunics.
Sheer dresses and pants added a touch of sex appeal to the collection, which will delight Lea Michele and Kylie Minogue.
Peter Dundas didn’t forget to pay homage to Pucci’s heritage with vivid 70s ‘Elisse’ patchwork-style prints modernized with a wood-blocking effect.
Joan Smalls closed the show wearing a bright red halter gown, which I can see popping up on a red carpet very soon.
Key accessories included cuffs, wedges, metallic clutches, shoulder bags and oversized sunglasses.
Front Row: Ulyana Sergeenko, Rose McGowan, Anna Wintour and Anna Dello Russo
