Emilio Pucci might have left us 21 years ago but you can still feel his spirit and legacy until today. Born in one of the oldest noble families in Florence, his eyes for fashion were captured beautifully through his unique details of kaleidoscopic prints and colors. If we’re talking about these two elements, I must say that he was the only designer that could pull it off — The Pucci prints are like breaths of fresh air — They’re jolly, artsy and so avant-garde. It is the kind of style that you will wear with pride. They’re so feminine and artistic without being over the top. You know how some geometric prints can be just way too much? When it comes to Pucci prints, they’re simple but classy, modern and fancy. You can never get bored with his geometric imagination because everything that comes out of Pucci’s fashion house is divine and if I may add, very hypnotizing and meditative at the same time.
To get more intimate with Emilio Pucci, Taschen Books recently released a Pucci book. There were 3 people involved in this project. Vanessa Friedman, the writer, a fashion editor for the Financial Times. Alessandra Arezzi Boza, the contributor author, a Costume and Fashion historian. Finally, editor Armando Chitolina, a design consultant and art director for Vogue Italia and L’Uomo Vogue.
What makes this Pucci book so special is the fact that there are 4 different covers available, based on his famous prints. Now I’m not sure if it’s a good idea, because they are all so pretty! You’re gonna have hard time choosing just one. This hardcover book is priced at US$69.99 and the multilingual versions will be out in May, 2013.
