Referring to the house’s first fashion creation, a ski outfit, Emilio Pucci presented a collection that brought together beachwear, geometry and sport for its spring / summer 2022 presentation, in line with Milan Fashion Week.
Influenced by Emilio Pucci’s passions and core values, Pucci’s in-house design team sought to combine fun shapes and tones with a more sophisticated design style, for the ‘phygital’ presentation. Asymmetrical, flowing tunics contrasted with geometric structured mini dresses, while structured tops were complemented by skin exposing cutout details.
A coordinated top and pants, as well as a dress with a stand-up collar that sets itself apart from more simplistic geometric looks. Each piece demonstrated intricate beading techniques in tribal-like floral designs influenced by the brand’s classic prints.
Specifically, Nairobi, Tartuca, Africana and Cyprea prints provided specific inspiration for a number of patterns and designs used throughout the collection. The dresses with knit panels mirrored the prints through the use of dynamic shapes and movements, highlighted by bright colors.
Intriguing accessories were in limited supply but always made bold statements. Simple sandals came to life with exaggerated hair-like details, a technique that was also implemented in a small selection of miniature clutch bags, armbands and tops to tie the collection together.
The new collection is expected to arrive in select Emilio Pucci stores in March 2022.
