Emilio Pucci, prince of prints, has dressed every ‘60s and ‘70s-loving fashionista from Beyoncé Knowles to Rachel Zoe. (Did you know that Pucci Creative Director Peter Dundas designed a handful of fierce costumes for Queen B’s The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour? And of course it’s no surprise that celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe has mad love for ‘70s caftans and maxi dresses.)
Pucci’s penchant for prints that pop drove his career and fame, and continues to propel his legacy. What Pokémon is to gamers is what Pucci prints are to Pucci Girls like Leighton Meester—gotta catch ‘em all. If you think there’s such a thing as too much vintage Pucci in any one closet at any given time, allow us to remind you of the versatility of these psychedelic kaleidoscope prints. A Pucci Girl can just as easily sport the so-bright-you-need-shades patterns swooshing down ski slopes as she can sunning off the back of a yacht near Capri. That’s right. Wanderlust babes, beware. Once you start, the fun’s literally not going to stop. Bunny run to beach, and everywhere jet setters jet set in between, are the perfect spots to flaunt Pucci’s iconic prints.
So where does the more-is-more collector begin? Why not with a bag bursting with personality to spare! In the same vein as Fendi’s furry bag charms, it seems everyone’s aiming to stand out this season, starting with what’s on your arm. And then of course, for the purists, there are always Pucci dresses, tops and blouses, coats and jackets, scarves and wraps, sunglasses, heels, and swimwear to peruse, too.
