An Aristocratic Fashion Legend
22nd April 2013 Emilio Pucci was an Italian Marquis, philosopher, and a dashing designer darling for socialites and fashionable women, with an amazing sense of style, colour and memorable prints. His little boutique on the idyllic Isle of Capri drew the likes of Jacqueline Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe to his doorstep. Nowadays, The House of Pucci fans include Victoria Beckham and a host of other stylish women, who love to wear Pucci’s contemporary designs in magical colours.
Taschen has published a beautiful book that traces the aristocratic roots of the charismatic designer, and how a tiny store owned by the family became an international brand. The book is lavishly illustrated with photographs, drawings, and images from the Emilio Pucci Foundation. Author Vanessa Friedman has captured the essence of Pucci’s versatility, and his impact on fashion history. www.taschen.com JG
