The jolt of energy means a leap forward, as Emilio Pucci embraces the moment with awareness, not nostalgia, of the roots for Spring

The Emilio Pucci Spring 2019 RTW collection features new silhouettes, new shapes, new prints and new fabrics convey a nonchalant take on the Pucci code, looking ahead.

A sense of lightness and movement pervades a wardrobe made of easy, asymmetrical pieces meant to be mixed and matched: foulard shirts, liquid shirt-dresses, pleated skirts, gauzy knits, pleated trousers. Shrunken fits give tailored peacoats and collarless jackets spontaneity. Nylon trench coats have welcoming volumes. Graphic lines cross jersey dresses, Gingham checks on tailored shorts provide dynamism, hand dyed raffia fringes and macramé beading add a zing of feisty hedonism.

New prints – Villa, Shell, Riviera – and unexpected ways to deal with them: reducing colors to get an almost monochromatic effect; printing motifs on pleated garments to get graphic ruptures; black backgrounds. The juicy palette of summery brights – yellows, reds, greens, light blues – has a feisty vibe. Silk, viscose, technical wool, wool bouclé update the world of leisure with a dynamic touch.

A villa mood with a cosmopolitan mindset defines the accessories: patent multicolor intrecciato hiheel sandals; beaded purses, printed shoppers and carry-alls.

To get a perfect get-together feel, a concise line up of printed shirts and tanks for men, worn with brightly colored slacks, completes the Caribbean scene.
