Fausto Puglisi Unveils Spring/Summer 2017 Collection On a Shrine Set

We have officially headed over to Milan now with the range of absolutely beautiful shows and creations that are as Italian as they come. That means lots of color, lots of texture and lots of creativity. At the Fausto Puglisi spring/summer 2017 runway show on the Milan Fashion Week, this was made perfectly clear, combining the abstract florals with interesting cuts and color palettes, throwing on some rather strange-looking shoes in the mix.

That includes ribbons and ruffled half boots with open toes, worn with knee-high stockings, the skirts generally covering very little around the tops of the legs. We’re not sure we like this particular style, but it does seem to be a recurring one. Instead, we are in love with the boots that come with thin gold stilettos and match the dresses or trousers worn with them perfectly, no open toes.

The sleeves are long half the time, the skirts often falling to the knees, slits are a common sight, both center and side, and cross necklaces are a huge part of the fashion statements. Add in high waists to the trousers worn with bralettes, and no boundaries in general when it comes to the collection as a whole, and you have a rather intriguing Fausto Puglisi spring lineup.

Puglisi has always been bold and knows what he wants. At the age of 18 in the US, he acquired 10 dresses from his hometown of Messina and brought them to Saks Fifth Avenue to sell. A Sicilian who does not know how to give up, this designer has come along good ways and has so much more potential to create the best in fashion. He’s a man after the sexy in life and with a healthy dose of obsession over ancient Rome, bringing in olden designs into something that is new, modern and utterly irresistible.

Throughout the Fausto Puglisi spring 2017 ready-to-wear collection, we notice a focus on uniformity of style while still adding some very typical variations. We love the cinched waists by wrap belts, the artistry of the floral designs, and the focus on contrasts, the kaleidoscope patterning, and the open midriffs.

The half and half dresses are not really our thing but seems like they are moving into 2017 as well, while leather additions here and there only give the designs a dose of rebellious reality. There is something that screams “I’m not a girl, not yet a woman” in so many of these pieces, showing that transitory stage, while also showing off a good amount of skin here and there with plunging necks and high slits.

Of course, there are the much more sophisticated looks as well, with one particular multi-colored dress appearing just perfect for the professional world, though towards the end of the lineup we are faced with the more youthful and quite a bit more rebellious looks that scream style and high fashion while still celebrating individuality.

The cross theme is possibly the most interesting though, appearing on sweater dresses as well as necklaces, the background very much a biblical runway session happening. Rome’s Christian past and present are fully embodied here and we rather like it.
