Peter Dundas’ Pucci girl is all grown up — at least for this pre-fall season. Dundas describes her as “a more grown-up bohemian than usual. It’s WASPy bohemian,” he says, citing Charlotte Rampling and Stevie Nicks as the collection’s muses. Thus, hemlines were lower and the colors, a rich palette of pinks, pumpkins, greens and brick reds. He included both great party fare (a feathered cocktail frock and allover sequined separates) as well as core Seventies staples (paisley print dresses with flounced skirts, breezy caftans and lean pullovers over wide-leg pants), some punched up with layered prints and innovative overdyed touches. Two terrific examples: the fitted suede jacket and tweed cape embellished with subtle tie-dyed details.
