The new Emilio Pucci Fall 2021 RTW collection, devised by the renewed team which has been at the helm of design for a few seasons, celebrates a sunny Pucci winter of resort dressing from St Tropez to St Moritz. The tone is joyful, refined and audacious; the body is freed, athletic, with prints swirling all over: shorts and culottes, in fact, reveal legs that are decorated, never naked.
Modernity imbues the idea of a modular wardrobe of streamlined separates that can be combined in infinite ways according to individual wills. Quilted bomber jackets, blousons and short shorts, knitted mohair jacquard polos and bodysuits, double faced tunics and coats, jumpsuits, airy pleated dresses, and impalpable chiffon shift dresses decorated with crystals and feathers are modules of a quintessentially Pucci discourse infused with tones of ivory, yellow, pink, orange, nude and petrolio. The same hues characterize the Cervinia, Cortina d’Ampezzo, Specchi, Clessidra, Nuages and Nappine prints: archive and iconic Pucci motifs that have been refreshed and desaturated.
The wintry mood is a matter of quilting and duvet, developed on big and small items such as the bomber or the shorts in technical silk or velvet, with sustainable paddings made of natural silk fibres and from R-PET Bottles. The soft scuba fabric of the skiing jumpsuits is made of recycled nylon, too, as per Pucci’s commitment to improve sustainability.
An exercise in color and print that refreshes the heritage splashing patterns in unexpected places to spread refinement and joy all around, the collection embodies the new Pucci course.
