Pe­ter Dun­das leaves Emilio Pucci with a hot-blooded fi­nale. 138 Boys get their share of flair as de­sign­ers push the bound­aries

De­signer Pe­ter Dun­das, who joined Pucci from Roberto Cavalli in 2009 and has re­cently headed back there as cre­ative di­rec­tor, in­jected an un­apolo­get­i­cally sexy slice of rock ’n’ roll into Pucci dur­ing his ten­ure, and his fi­nal col­lec­tion, re­plete with Led Zep­pelin sound­track, op-art thigh-high boots, back­less dresses and sul­try vel­vet trousers, was no ex­cep­tion. A strong as­trol­ogy mo­tif cropped up every­where in the au­tumn-win­ter col­lec­tion, from bold printed sweater dresses to del­i­cate em­broi­deries on vel­vet blaz­ers and floor-sweep­ing capes. For the fi­nale, Dun­das sent out a string of his favourite su­per­mod­els in long jer­sey dresses, each with their own zo­diac sign: Lily Don­ald­son in Aquarius, Anja Ru­bik in Can­cer and Joan Smalls in Leo (top right). The il­lus­tra­tions were bold, sweep­ing and ren­dered by hand, just like Emilio Pucci used to do him­self. Dun­das gave the Pucci legacy an aura of youth and rel­e­vance, mak­ing the show one of Mi­lan’s hottest tick­ets. He also dressed and be­friended many of the best bod­ies in show busi­ness (Gwyneth, Bey­oncé and Ri­hanna in­cluded), and those not walk­ing for him were out in force to sup­port his fi­nal act in a fit­tingly stel­lar send-off.
