Pucci rocks the ‘beautiful Ibizan hippie’ for ss11 at Milan Fashion Week

Pucci rocks the ‘beautiful Ibizan hippie’ for ss11 at Milan Fashion Week

Pucci, Milan ss11Pucci, Milan Pucci, Milan ss11Pucci, Milan Supermodel Freja Beha Erichsen opened the Emilio Pucci ss11 show at Milan Fashion Week this season, wearing a long printed chiffon maxi-dress with thigh-high, lace-up tan brown boots.

I love Pucci designs- vibrant, colourful and perfect for those hot, fun, summer days…and Dundas did not disappoint!

Former Emanuel Ungaro designer Peter Dundas joined the Florentine design house about two years ago, following the departure of Matthew Williamson who left to develop his own-label.

The collection had a very bohemian feel to it this season, with long fluid maxi-dresses in a palette of blue, white, camel and terracotta.

Pucci, famous for its geometric prints in a kaleidoscope of colours, drew inspiration from the archives for ss11 with a Wild West twist. This included fringing on leather jackets and trousers, leather waistcoats and ruffled blouses with lace-up fronts.

British Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman told “It was very rock ‘n’ roll, especially with Kylie sitting in the front row in her barely there gold dress [from Pucci’s autumn/winter collection]. Peter does what he does really well. It’s the same riff but he has taken it to a slightly different place this time – it’s hard to think of Pucci as anything other than for rich, beautiful Ibizan hippies.”

Dundas said: “A casual and carefree summer is what Pucci girls enjoy. So why give them anything else?”

The clothing is fabulous for dancing the day away at Blue Marlin, Ibiza, or perfect for a relaxed late lunch at Club 55, St Tropez….

It’s going to be a bit of a wait until next summer though..!

  • I’ve always wanted to go to a fashion show. Being surrounded by all the beautiful people. I think it would only be worthwhile if you were sitting in the front row, because sitting behind people doesn’t have that same appeal.
