Emilio Pucci - #MFW Spring 2017

"For Spring, Massimo Giorgetti, did a deep dive into the archive. The prints he returned with were more or less recognizable as Pucci. In an effort to modernize them, he supersized one and abstracted another. A graphic squiggle was closest of the three to the Pucci original, and probably the best. Icons become icons for a reason. Giorgetti would rather play down the famous prints. Fair enough. The other house signature is color, and this he played up. The show invites featured swatches of jersey in shades lifted directly from the Pucci records, a light turquoise, along with acid yellow, coral red, and lilac. He used the bright jersey for softly draped, languid dresses, some layered over bodysuits in contrasting colors. The brights reappeared on color-blocked items like a bodysuit worn with a matching cardigan or an oversize sports jersey and tiny miniskirt combo. These had a sportif vibe, more in keeping with what he does at his street style MSGM label. Three seasons in, Giorgetti is still sussing out what his unique Pucci signatures are. But in a fashion moment loaded with color, this collection will probably find an audience." -
