EmilioPucciAW2015_2In a recent Elle magazine, there were pages and pages of trends. The trend that caught my eye was entitled Board Games and the page was covered with models wearing checkerboard  patterned clothing.

According to the fashion world, the ‘watercolor gradient adds a painterly finish to the season’s coolest staples.’ The fashion magazines are filled with ombre designs from head to toes…hair to shoes. Two examples are the shimmering rainbow evening bag from Roger Vivier (a limited edition of 50 and at $4050…perfect for any holiday occasion) and the subtle shading of the long gown from the Emilio Pucci’s (a definite departure from his typical pop art prints.)

Emilio_PucciRarely do we think of shoes when we describe the designs of Emilio Pucci…my mind conjures up swirls of brightly hued color. (Follow this link for a tour of ‘vintage’ Pucci designs) The dragon carved wedge sandals jumped off the page of the May Elle Magazine. Better save your pennies though…they can be yours for $4,695.

In addition, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, to my baby sister on a milestone birthday. Don’t worry Anne…your secret is safe with me!!!

pucciRecently, a designer working in our showroom expressed dismay concerning a room she had just completed…it didn’t have pop. Although the customer was happy with the room the designer was not. Emilio Pucci’s designs have always had pop. It is amazing how timeless his work is. I look at the fabric patterns from the 60’s and they are still fresh and fun today.

LOVE BANGLES…then you will LOVE the featured bangle. Follow the link to more great Pucci inspirations.
