Emilio Pucci drew inspiration from a Japanese garden for this collection. The brand produced textile sculptures, material inflorescence in watery tones, dusty sky blue, mint and orchid. The collection was fluid and sensual with plenty of oriental evocations: lurex chemisiers with loose kimono sleeves, zen coats in compact colours, exotic silver suits. The evening dresses featured beautiful embroidery, sequins, fringes and prints. Breezy frocks made from plissé neck scarves were draped, wraparound and gently asymmetric. Prints recurred over the surfaces in soft pastel tones or iridescent, opalescent colours, as though covered with light rain. They echoed the brand’s archive. Light from the East radiated throughout, expanding over glossy pleated skirts, shiny jackets, chiffon and lurex tops, metallic silk maxi dresses with a rigorous obi belt at the waist.
