“I guess it’s my version of gym queens,” explained Peter Dundas, the designer of the fabulous Emilio Pucci spring/summer 2014 collection showcased at Milan Fashion Week. In fact, they really are – ‘they’ meaning the models. There was no alternative for this, since the striking mishmash of African ethnic motives spiced up with sporty stylish elements, further combined with Masai beadwork and a bit of athletic looks created an absolutely unique line, which has no kind of resemblance with any other collection unveiled during the fashion week so far.
The fabrics and the designs used in the Emilio Pucci spring/summer 2014 collection are surprisingly diverse and really more than just amazing. The shapes are just as various as the other components. To mention just a few, we can talk about those wonderfully selected color combinations fit within the ethnic motives and put on shirts and mini length dresses. Later, the awesome and detailed beadwork catches our eyes. The bustier dresses were also there to amuse and fascinate you showing what sporty elegance looks like.
The wide belts carrying some eagle-resembling emblems and motives were just the right accompaniments for the killer Emilio Pucci dresses. The chic is also present through the show, created via the sumptuous glitter of black on white and navy floor length dresses.
The sporty part of the Emilio Pucci spring/summer 2014 collection is guaranteed by the sarouel pants and simply awesome jumpsuits, still having those leather belts fastened on. The finalizing touch of the image of the “gym queens” is the use of zipper details, which couldn’t but be there.
Coming to the colors and fabrics, we can mention the bright orange and navy, underlining the color palette of the entire Emilio Pucci spring/summer 2014 collection like a highlighter. In respect of the material, we find a wide range of names here, from neoprene and leather to a small proportion of parachute material and chiffon. The iridescent shine of some garments, created with the help of colorful beads and sequins, was another topic of discussion.
When the ethnic, the sporty and the sexual looks collide, we get what is called the Emilio Pucci spring/summer 2014 collection, striking, creative and just cool.
