one of my favorite Italian Designers who has been around for ages, came out with a fashion line that was classic Pucci yet with an edgy twist. Elegant, sophisticated and sexy were the words I immediately thought of when I saw Peter Dundas’ collection. I loved it! He took a boho-luxe and pre-disco-days approach that was inspired by music-poster art of the time. Typical of Pucci, the silhouettes were a contrast of skinny suits and sportswear all rendered in a sunset-inspired palette. The classical tie-dye patterns applied to a new edgy look on the dresses are really what blew me away about his collection!!!
Lastly, Bottega Veneta and Versace stood out to me as well. For Bottega Veneta, Tomas Maier truly addressed the versatile and elegant need for a relaxed way of dressing. I personally think he was extremely successful in mixing the two notions allowing for the relaxed fashionable look to finally stand out on the runway. Although a lot of Versace pieces didn’t stand out to me and seemed to be a bit loud, other pieces of hers were quite the opposite. The pieces I liked focused more on straightforward silhouettes, bold colors and no embellishments adding up to her strongest collection in a long time. She too showed off the quiet sophistication of the prints by being able to bring to the runway a fashionable and sexy look with a twist of “I don’t give a damn.”
