Emilio Pucci

Autumn-Winter 2012/13 – Taking inspiration from the small menswear capsule collection, Dundas was thinking of masculine silhouettes and tailoring upon this collection; there were tuxedos, tops and tails and cummerbunds. Dark and minimal with shine and matt created exotic black. Tight black dresses were slashed here and there to reveal slices of sheer skin. There were crocodile textures creating heavy, durable skirts. Though it was a predominantly black show – like most of Milan has been – there were snippets of metallic, matt-nude, soft baby blue and a neon orange shaggy coats. The bejewelled element of the clothes made for beautifully crafted dresses which took an a mosaic element at times, otherwise adding high glamour (and maintaining modesty) on full length clear chiffon.  Finale dresses, were extreme takes on reconstructed tailoring and full-length slash dresses we have seen previously. It’s official, dark masculine tailoring is back with a bite.
