Emilio Pucci Pre-Fall 2015 Collection
The pre-fall 2015 collections are being presented one by one, each designer’s masterpieces more breathtaking than the last. As such, it is impossible to leave out the amazing Emilio Pucci pre-fall 2015 collection designs, which this year are full of the ‘70s references and extreme lengths. We’re talking straight suedes with cinched waists cut long, while parkas with round hems and fox-fur trimmings go extra short and voluminous. We’ve got lace and rich embroideries, colorful patterning and graphic touches to the mini dresses. We see a whole lot of blues and pinks, thigh-high stockings and a grand focus on legs. Each and every design is impeccably fit for a modern nobleman.
Born of the Florentine noble families, Emilio Pucci, the Marchese di Barsento, was indeed an irreplaceable Italian fashion designer who made the name of his fashion house synonymous with the geometric prints in a kaleidoscope of colors. Entering the fashion industry with his brand in 1947, Pucci quickly rose in popularity. Starting with skiwear, he moved on to swimwear and colorful, boldly patterned scarves, before delving into the world of wrinkle-free printed silk dresses. Lingerie lines catapulted his career into the US and soon he was an international icon, with Emilio Pucci pieces worn by Sophia Loren, Jackie Kenny, and even Marilyn Monroe, the latter of which was such a fan that she was buried in one of the designer’s dresses. This fame only makes the latest in collections even more appealing.
The first piece we adore in the Emilio Pucci pre-fall 2015 collection is in such a royal blue, we can hardly avert our eyes away from the gorgeous piece we see before us. This coat that double over as a dress itself, with a buckled belt cinching the waist and a slit inching up the center that shows off sexy legs. The coat itself is nearly floor length, emphasizing the height of the model and truly adding to the stately figure before us. A simple maroon leather handbag with batching boots and a mini dress or sweater in the same color underneath certainly do the trick. This look has us completely mesmerized.
If it was length we wanted, it is length that we have received from this pre-fall collection, as we are treated to a rather intriguing combination of navy blue velvet shorts held up with a lovely velvet belt, and used to tuck in a see-through voluminous pink shirt with a kaleidoscope of color at the collar that’s so typically Emilio Pucci. The thigh-high leather boots remind us that this is indeed a pre-fall piece and not something from the spring/summer collection. We’re not quite sure about baring our breasts to the world under a sheer blouse though…
We might get away with getting lost in the jungle wearing the printed matching set it seems, as the colors are great for camouflage and the patterns intriguing enough to have the animals confused for days on end. The lacing at the chest that ties around the neck may be a tad too much overall, but the maxi skirt with the matching loose blouse held up with a black belt keeps us coming back for more. It is certainly one look we may just want to see ourselves wearing for it will certainly add height to our figures. We might just rid ourselves of the laces at the neck though. Rather scary there.
