The absolutely divine and breathtaking Emilio Pucci spring/summer 2015 collection came to adorn the catwalk at Milan Fashion Week with its enchanting seventies spirit, beautiful prints and patterns, and the flowing feminine silhouettes. Still, it was the iconic Pucci style that made these designs so memorable and to-die-for, and as the creative director of the fashion house, Peter Dundas said it backstage: “I really wanted to do it last time so just thought I’m just going to do it.” We actually do want to see him do it many more times, since this collection is a vivid proof that the Pucci woman is always chic and delicate, looking astounding on any occasion, be that a nice day out or a glamorous party.
The Emilio Pucci spring/summer 2015 collection joins the big list of collections unveiled during this Milan Fashion Week season, which clearly shape the seventies trend for the coming spring. The seventies style is pictured very bohemian and romantic by Pucci, drenched in a charming carefree spirit, yet still adhering to the modern shapes and color philosophy. It’s the beautiful blend between the modern and the old, the hippy and the classic and elegant that makes this collection so vibrant, and Dundas has certainly worked it out perfectly!
As a rule, Pucci’s spring is painted in lots of psychedelic patterns and vibrant colors, which never look overwhelming on those perfectly proportioned designs. An ode to the nature is present here too, as we discover those sophisticated floral patterns and embroidery incorporated with a beautiful beadwork and lace and crochet details. This is exactly how the show started, bringing some lovely white designs all sprinkled with colorful florals. There we also saw spring’s popular fringe (seems like we are going to see it a lot in the street soon), decorating the hems of the white hippie poncho-dress.
Alongside the classic skinny suits (we saw lots of styles in burnt orange, brown and dark green tones) clearly bearing the seventies style, the Emilio Pucci spring/summer 2015 collection flooded the runway with a kaledascope of flowing dresses cut at different lengths and adorned with various psychedelic shades and patterns. Asymmetric hemlines, deep plunging necks, halter necks, gypsy-style silhouettes and unexpected cutouts gave so much attitude and interest to those feminine dresses. There were designs painted in watercolor patterns, like the flowing maxi dress Naomi Campbell was spotted wearing. The colors varied, yet those watercolor effects remained unchanged, putting a colorful end to the show.
In terms of accessories, we saw lovely ethnic-style necklaces and strappy heeled sandals, which enhanced the femininity of the looks to the max. The models’ hair was left loose and effortless, as flowy as the entire collection was.
Our ultimate crush of the Emilio Pucci spring/summer 2015 collection? Every little bit of it, every single design, color combo and detail! We are such hopeless fans of the Emilio Pucci woman’s style this spring, and those Pucci-fied seventies!
