Pucci’s Fall/Winter 2015 collection at Milan Fashion Week. Consort News March 2, 2015 Fashion Astrological at Pucci. http://www.emiliopucci.com/ A cryptic wording on the Emilio Pucci show on Saturday invitation that read “with gratitude to Peter Dundas,” lead to much anticipation and speculation. Showgoers entered the Palazzo Serbelloni not sure what to expect. A supposed last hurrah from the designer who’s been Pucci’s creative lead since 2008, though the fact as to whether he’s actually exiting was purposely kept vague. Dundas looked to the stars for inspiration (along with an entirely black and white collection that Emilio Pucci designed in the ’50s) and this came through in the twinkling embroidered pieces, a series of looks in dark navy blue, star signs embroidered onto separates with gold beads and, most obviously, giant graphics of the zodiac symbols as a running motif. These constellation-inspired patterns really came to life in the finale dresses, which were expertly crafted and completely dazzling as they walked down the runway. Dundas has brought notably brought much sex appeal to the brand: There were peek-a-boo bandage dresses, open backs and lots of sheer and short hemlines (not to mention Gigi Hadid in a cheetah print number). The bohemian attitude he’s become known for appeared in the form of suede fringe, flowy silk eveningwear and some very cool mixed-material booties. A pair of finely beaded macramé-esque mini-dresses in black and white, which reveled plenty of skin through the open weaving — were perfect examples of Dundas’s skill. Unsurprisingly, Dundas was able to wrangle an impressive lineup of models to walk in the show, including Eva Herzigova, Karlie Kloss, Hilary Rhoda, Joan Smalls, Anja Rubik and Natasha Poly who have all supported his work.
