Emilio Pucci Fall 2016 MFW Show Plunged Us Into Winter Wonderland

It looks like we are scaling the mountains with Emilio Pucci, finding rare flora and enjoying days of winter fun. The whole of the Emilio Pucci fall/winter 2016-2017 collection spoke of a winter wonderland of sports, heading towards very much loved spots for skiing and some very interesting adventures. When it comes to ready-to-wear, Emilio Pucci has generally always been a favorite because of the feminine streak and the sex appeal exuded. This time around though, with new designer Massimo Giorgetti, things are a bit amiss as we find ourselves face to face with bulkier clothing that is clearly made to keep you warm in places where the sun barely shines.

Emilio Pucci Fall/Winter 2016-2017 RTW - Milan Fashion Week

There are 37 looks to the collection, which was released to Milan Fashion Week, the third range of shows around the world that belongs to fashion month, with some extremely abstract artistry to help create just the mood the designer was going for. We should take a moment to talk about those shoes though. While the clothing itself seemed to be lacking the Pucci flair we are used to, the footwear more than made up for the problems this may cause. That includes the sportif speed demon look that features zippy flats that lace up in leather and come upholstered and tufted like the interior of a vintage car. It looks like we are looking at ski boots from the 1960s, which is a fine fit with the rest of the ensembles.

The mountainscapes even appear on the boots with the thick heels, matching the sweater and dresses worn on top and bringing in a classic look by a new designer. We saw some really blue boots and some really coral, some that matched the outfits beautifully and some that stood out. There were even some in camouflage or bowling alley style in order to bring in something entirely different.

Only the second day in Milan and we have some extraordinary looks to fill our senses with. And while the Emilio Pucci fall 2016 line has generally delivered something a little different than what we are seeing now, Giorgetti certainly has major talent when it comes to drawing incredible mountainscapes. Nothing is better than the mountains for the creative director, other than the clothing inspired from the mountains, particularly when you are looking at sporty-chic.

Warmth is top priority and a lack of shape does not hinder the popularity of the line-up. On the contrary, we are positive the colorful creations of Massimo Giorgetti will only get better with time, pulling together new outfits consisting of what people want and need these days. Bomber jackets and fun skirts are definitely on that list! The new Emilio Pucci prints are definitely one to look for as you go shopping for the upcoming fall and winter seasons, beginning right after we see a bit of sunshine to get us through the beginning of 2016.
