A trip to Morocco inspired Pucci-designer Peter Dundas for his ss14 collection, which was a mix of athletic wear (scuba-diving, motor-racing, trekking, boxing and running), streetwear and exotic prints and African daywear like djellabas and sarouel pants.
But you have to have an extreme body confidence to wear some of those new Pucci-outfits. Dundas shaped black Neoprene into barely-there bustier tops as well as minimal minidresses worn under intricately beaded mesh tubes.
There were also tank tops and track pants embroidered in gold on black net, an allover beaded hoodie emblazoned with PUCCI and the buy viagra from canada year of its birth, 1947, and long dresses made from beaded basketball mesh.
The sporty element wasn’t only for show. The parachute silk of a printed parka, the liquid silver material that was used for running shorts, the draped sarouel-meets-jogging pants— they were practically weightless and cool. We’ll probably see a lot of it back on the streets and in fast fashion stores.

High boots, shorts dresses did the trick at Pucci’s fall/winter presentation. The over the knee boots were suede and came in a range of colors, from camel to red. The dresses varied from pastel shaded, satin printed to sexy transparent with lace details. Clothes, as designer Peter Dundas described them, “women want to put on and men want to take off”.
Though like many of the in Milan presented collections Pucci breathed forties, yet it were late sixties/seventies muses Anita Pallenberg, Britt Ekland (and their trendy bangs) that inspired Dundas. Their modern look a likes had that same rocky attitude mixed with a boho swing in the form of animal printed waist belts, high collars, capes and fur coats casually tossed on their shoulders. And if this boho rock collection fails to become a success; the Pucci beauty will. Bangs it is! (what the first lady can do, we can too).

Peter Dundas, the British designer at Pucci, proved himself capable of designing collections for this Florentine house without the famous kaleidoscopic Pucci-prints. And still, it’s as glamorous and elegant as it ever was.
For Spring, Dundas filtered his style signatures through the lens of Vietnam. The designer used occasional military reference as well as traditional Asian motifs and showed bomber jackets, sheer veiling, tattoo embroideries, and a cargo jacket in kimono-style. The collection did have some prints, but they were not the focus.  This time Dundas layered a woodblock motif over the vintage find to make it modern.

Peter Dundas, the British designer working for Emilio Pucci, surprised the audience with a complete different collection – far from Pucci heritage of paisley swirls and moving prints. He took his own wardrobe as a starting point. So masculine tailoring and fabrics dominated, as did black, and a minimalist hugging silhouette. The focus was at tight dresses with sexy splits and slits revealing slices of sheer, he also used velvet prints at sheer fabrics. Later the same idea got more bejeweled. For evening Dundas suggested beside the sexy dresses classic tuxedos, or tuxedo-elements.

Girls, you better start working on your abs ‘cause the cropped tops trend is here to stay. After having seen it at Prada, Versace and Preen, it was a big hit at Emilio Pucci today too. Gypsy looking girls wore them with patchwork maxi skirts and lots of jewelry. With lace fabric on the front they were a bit on the edgy side, but the real Pucci girls will definitely find a way to work with that.

The rest of the collection was kinda risqué too with lots of sheer and lace parts. Like the red and pink printed sheer dress, which left nothing to the imagination. Or the black mesh tunic worn by Melissa Tammerijn, which gave everything away. Not to mention the revealing black lace skirt and cropped top, which Gwyneth Paltrow was able to pull off on the red carpet earlier this week.

Yet despite the collection being pretty raunchy; the clothes looked beautiful. Especially the pastel colored prints Dundas used on several floor-sweeping designs were to die for. And after we’ve created our very own six pack we sure will be able to come up with some good underwear solutions for those incredible see-through pieces of Pucci.

Peter Dundas presented his first Pucci-menswear yesterday during his women’s fallshow. Not really exciting stuff, so most attention went to the women’s clothes. For Fall he’s got inspired by a long list of topics: hunters,  Tyrol, winter palaces, Romy Schneider as Sissi and  Victoire de Castellane, the designer of Dior’s haute joaillerie.
The bust was the center point of the collection, Dundas framed it with corseted hourglass dresses that had long sleeves and a little collar or a bow at the neckline.  These came in all manner of materials, from practically humble loden wool to sumptuous black velvet embellished with crystals arrayed in diamond patterns, as well as in the familiar Pucci prints.

The Pucci fashion show started way too late, because Kylie Minogue wasn’t on time. But the singer, who arrived in a gold asymmetrical Pucci dress, was worth the wait. She’s worn Pucci outfits on so many occasions and really is the perfect celeb to promote the sexy chic Italian brand.

The spring/summer collection was once again glamorous and fearless. Peter Dundas designed sheer printed dresses, tight pants with slightly flared legs and gorgeous swimsuits.

The first looks had white & blue prints, which halfway the collection changed into red, orange and camel hues. Also, some yellow and pink came by.

Lace-up high boots, lace-up collars and lace-up high slits could be seen throughout the whole show. The lace-up details were one of the main aspects of the collection, together with tassels, cut-outs, sequins and ruffles.

The tassels were playfully added on shoulder bags, tops and on a trench coat. Multiple cut-outs added even more sexiness to the designs (dresses and swimsuits) that were already pretty body-revealing. Large sequins, which were added on dresses, pants and scarves, gave the looks some extra glamour.

And headbands, necklaces with big crosses and sunglasses with rose-colored glasses were a great finishing of the looks.

All outfits were perfection and the models looked like the ideal woman. Yet not every average woman call wear those clothes, designed with the bodies of supermodels in mind. Especially the long dresses with high slits and tight fitted shiny pants will only look good if you have the length and the size of a model. Even Kylie, who is particularly tiny, could not wear any of the clothes without them being custom made for her.

But then again, maybe most women wearing Pucci are not your average women. Maybe they do have the perfect body type for the designs (or more than enough money to have the clothes tailor made).

It’s Peter Dundas’ third season at Pucci and he has taken the label to a darker, more risky place. In a season where designers go for minimalism and a structured ladylike silhouette, he presented a sexy collection with a bohemian touch and lots of red-carpet potential.

Dundas opened the show with a long purple jersey dress in a houseprint from the Pucci-archives, but he dip-dyed it in purple. This set the tone for the rest of the collection with ultra, ultrashort dresses – even the models were complaining about it – fringed scarf-dresses and big feather details. New were the tailored jackets in strong, clean lines. They were mixed with high waisted, suede flares. Eveningwear was pure glamor: long dresses with plunging necklines or minidresss with gold lace inserts and high slits.

Making good on the promise of his sexy debut, Peter Dundas turned out a sizzling collection for Spring/Summer at Emilio Pucci. It is, of course, the season the house was made for, having been established on jet-set Capri in the 1960’s, but it also doesn’t hurt that Dundas is an avid scuba diver. The underwater universe produced some aqueous prints that also formed the basis of allover-sequined dresses. Neoprene diving suits informed a few long-sleeve minidresses with curve-enhancing mesh insets.

Some of the hottest swimwear of the season strutted down the narrow runway. One or two in snakeskin aren’t advisable for actually getting wet.  The season’s all-important jacket? He cuts a mean one: cropped, fitted, with lean arms and a flippy hem.

Peter Dundas showed some highly elegant summerwear in his second collection Emilio Pucci.  Superfeminine and airy dresses dictated the Pucci-look for summer 2010. Dundas used snake prints, shiny and transparent fabrics and sequins. Lots of nudes, some silver, black and yellow could be seen. And some outfits in different shades of blue felt like diving into the ocean. The models showed beautiful bathingsuits with geometrical cutouts in unexpected places. There were a few pants, worn just below the knee, with buttons on the side. But those paled into insignificance next to some dresses. All eyes were on a long yellow dress with an extremely low cut neckline and the perfect finishing. A white dress almost looked like a wedding dress. Apart from a few bags and some gold-buckled belts there were no accessories. However, because of all the sequined and silver details you didn’t even miss them. Overall Dundas designed some perfect outfits in which you can lounge about on the beach or party until midnight. (Tess van Daelen)
