Emilio Pucci S/S 2010 / MFW / Day three

It doesn’t get hotter than this. After introducing a new vampy, disco babe chez Pucci at his debut last season, Peter Dundas forged on with that fierce, sexy directive. Show notes pointed to an aquatic and pirate inspiration, but that was just a thematic cover for serving up high-energy party clothes in a Seventies vein.

For starters, Dundas worked a serious bondage motif in strap-happy maillots and loads of lace-up corsetry, the latter on fringed jackets and trailing down the backsides of skinny pants. Also blush-worthy: Dundas’ sky-high hemlines (those itty-bitty snakeskin tap pants) and abundant cutouts on body-con dresses, including some slinky feathered and sequined versions. But there were some modest moments; rounding out the lineup were cover-ups, caftans, scuba-inspired jackets and some pretty Grecian gowns. As for the Pucci prints this season, Dundas tackled them in marine patterns and abstracted, geometric panels and inserts. While the collection didn’t offer anything new, there are plenty heat-seeking ladies who will probably lap it up.
