Emilio Pucci / Peter Dundas

If one waits, one will see things happen that they never expected. Peter Dundas has now taken the style he created for the house and brand and really transformed it into a 21st Century vision of Pucci. He has done this carefully and he has done it successfully with this season’s presentation.
With his rock star and over the top sexy take on an age old prestige brand, he has not brought back the




prints which the house is famous for since its inception. Mr. Dundas has previously flirted with the prints but has not given them a starring role until now. The clothes are modern and sexy and without question bear the stamp of Peter Dundas. If nothing else, he has restored my faith that not all designers are solely interested in reviving a brand by defying all that the brand stood for and ignoring it. BRAVO to Peter Dundas and here’s to hoping some others will follow his lead.
