Emilio Pucci Fall 2015 Ready-To-Wear  Joan Smalls2

During Milan Fashion Week, model Joan Smalls walked the runway at Emilio Pucci‘s Fall 2015 Ready-To-Wear show.

The show was Peter Dundas‘ last collection for the luxury Italian fashion house, the reason(s) for his departure still has yet to be announced. Dundas worked at Roberto Cavalli before coming over to Pucci.

Even though an official announcement on why Dundas is leaving Pucci has yet to be made, I am hearing from sources that he may be going back to Cavalli. Dundas held his position at Pucci for six years, double that of his predecessor.

Below is a recap from the show via

“It’s a very personal collection,” Dundas pointed out in a preview. The sporty horizontal stripes on clingy ribbed knits were apparently a reference to the rowing league he belongs to in Florence. The fluttery white and black evening separates were a loving tribute to his mother, a violinist who wore the colors when she performed. Here and there, you could spot callbacks to former hits, like an ombrĂ©-dyed body-con minidress or electric-hued crushed-velvet trousers and an equally bright silk blouse. As for the astrology motifs running through the collection, does it get more personal than star signs? They turned up everywhere, from intarsia sweaterdresses to delicate beaded embroideries on a velvet blazer and a floor-scraping cape. For the finale, Dundas sent out his favorite models in long jersey T-shirt dresses, each with their own zodiac sign: Cancer for Anja Rubik, Leo for Joan Smalls, Aquarius for Lily Donaldson. The illustrations were sweeping, strong, and emotional; Dundas also pointed out they were rendered by hand, as Emilio Pucci himself used to do.
