The travel and leisure world, with its adventurous feel, is deeply rooted in the heritage of the Emilio Pucci brand. So it’s no surprise that the in-house creative team took an imaginative trip around the world for resort. As reported, former creative director Massimo Giorgetti exited the company in April and a search for a successor is ongoing.

Chinese lacquered art works inspired the red patent leather of a pretty trench lined with printed silk, while Indian atmospheres resonated in the intricate embroideries and in the wide-leg pants featuring narrow cuffs with elastic bands.

Landing in the Western world, the Pucci cruise boat docked in Miami, which served as a major source of inspiration with the range of sorbet colors giving a delicate, feminine appeal to the collection. They were mixed and matched in the new signature print, with a contemporary, graffiti-like spin. This was splashed on the maxi jersey dresses, as well as on silk pajamas. In an alternative version, the pastel hues appeared on color-blocked cotton piquet frocks, embellished with laser-cut macramé cotton inserts.

A new pattern of irregular stripes decorated the breezy seersucker caftans, while pajama suits in solid colors were crafted from jacquard silk.

A nautical inspiration was seen in the tailored jackets and pants, all punctuated with maxi buttons.

And since no trip is complete without a souvenir, the collection featured a range of pieces reproducing an Emilio Pucci archival label showing stylized images of Palazzo Vecchio in Florence and Capri’s iconic Faraglioni rock formations.
