An energetic vibe ran through the Emilio Pucci collection. Easy-chic, uncomplicated silhouettes were combined with the house’s signature bold prints, as well as joyful colors and tactile finishings.
Plissé dresses and skirts, showing the new Pucci logo, featured intriguing dégradé effects amplified by the irregular stripes of fitted knit tops and the iridescent accents of silk blouses. The multicolor graphic prints were embroidered with metallic sequins on the sparkling asymmetric evening frocks, while viscose pin-striped tailored suits were infused with an elegant attitude.
A-lined colorful vinyl skirts were paired with lightweight silk blouses in fluid silhouettes and plissé skirts in solid tones were embellished with asymmetric foulard inserts splashed with graphic patterns, adding a joyful feel to the clean designs.
The joyful, flamboyant mood of a tropical summer: For the resort season, Emilio Pucci’s design team embraced a happy, colorful aesthetic that injected an energetic vibe into the brand’s lineup.
A kaleidoscope of new prints, featuring a more graphic look compared to archival motifs, was juxtaposed with eye-catching solids, such as sunflower yellow, hot pink and strawberry red. There was something sensual about the fitted dresses and the mini skirts embellished with embroideries and trimmed with raffia fringes.
Breezy caftans were decorated with prints at the cuffs, while silk inserts gave a luxurious touch to cropped, wide-leg jeans. If a foldable maxi K-way showed the most sporty and practical face of the brand, evening dresses featuring all-over embroideries were designed for jet-setters.
Emilio Pucci is definitely associated with glamorous cocktail parties, luxury escapes to posh winter resorts and chic vacations on the Mediterranean islands.
This idea of jet-set lifestyle continues to play a relevant role in the development of the label, but a new sense of urban reality is actually what the Emilio Pucci creative team targeted for pre-fall.
The colorful and chic collection was strong on versatile pieces, still injected with high-end sophistication yet infused with metropolitan dynamism.
Printed leggings, which are iconic staples of the brand’s heritage, were matched with color-blocked sweaters, and a pair of satin five-pocket pants was worn with a diagonally striped tweed peacoat trimmed with fringes.
An impeccable sartorial Prince of Wales suit was showed in a charming pink tone and a pajama set was crafted from plush velvet.
New patterns were introduced, including a bold floral motif, as well as a Pop print, which paid a tribute to Andy Warhol’s muse Edie Sedgwick. This was splashed on a jersey column dress and was re-created with sequins on a covetable short tunic frock.
From a chubby marabou coat with a contrasting wool collar to a printed satin denim-inspired truck jacket and a maxi black dress embellished on the back with a printed maxi

PARIS — Emilio Pucci has tapped Mauro Grimaldi as chief executive officer, WWD has learned.
Currently vice president of sales, marketing and communications at Elie Saab, Grimaldi is to take up his new role at the Florence-based fashion house on Sept. 14 and report to Pierre-Yves Roussel, chairman and ceo of LVMH Fashion Group.

Grimaldi joins Pucci in tandem with a new creative director, MSGM founder Massimo Giorgetti, who unveiled his initial designs during the Pitti Uomo trade show last month.
Roussel cited an encouraging response to the pilot effort for resort 2016, which included some shirts for men. “People are excited and interested to follow the journey,” he said, describing Giorgetti’s mission as “to modernize and energize” the fashion house, known primarily for its swirling and colorful prints on silk jersey. “Everyone is aligned on the strategy, which is very important for such a project.”

The Madison, Wisconsin emcee has had a consistent string of releases and features over the past decade that would make many consider him and outright “Muthaf#%@!#n Problem”. To back that statement up, Rome brings in NY vet Emilio Rojas to assist him on the bar heavy cut produced by Tommy Real. This should just be a warning as he has more work to let go of in the near future that should have everyone in his way taking caution. Look for something new to drop sooner than later, with more big features on the way.
