I must say, for such a dreary season, it felt like a breath of fresh air to see such bold colors popping up on the FW16 catwalks. Emilio Pucci’s collection comes as a literal bright spark in the darkness. Splashes of colour appear on bright oversized trench coats and as mountain ranges on dresses and a puffed jacket. Colors were everywhere as were the chevron prints discreetly placed on cuffs and the mountain range prints which were not so discreetly placed all over the very voluminous coats and jackets. Poppy red, chick yellow, ultramarine blue, vermillion and emerald green.
Geometrical shapes in every possible colour were pieced like glass shards placed in artistic patterns. It was a bizarre kaleidoscope that walked the runway at Emilio Pucci with Massimo Giorgetti manning the helm. Outfits were more streetwear, with a graffiti vibe in the melting pot of colours and prints.
Silhouettes were mainly cozy and oversized with long sleeves showing a practical side to the collection, because after all, who is going to be wearing anything sleeveless in the cold.
