PUCCI PRESENTS ITS FW23 “SUPERNOVA” COLLECTION
An explosion of light that ripples through the cosmos. Or else a star who shines bright within our world. Titled Supernova, Camille Miceli’s latest collection for Pucci radiates extreme expression through bold colour schemes, reworked prints, and charismatic styling.
Expanding on the space inspirations of Initials E. P. this season enchants the eye with revisited heritage motifs and novel surface treatments while reimagining 60s references through the prism of the present. Giardino is a print of organic shapes filled in with geometric checks and stripes. Fior di Loto features diagonal bands of tulips in graphic repetition. In contrasting hues that emphasize its psychedelic effect Leocorno riffs on an archive print created by Emilio Pucci in the late ’50s that is inspired by the ancient flags of the Sienese horse race Palio di Siena.
Colour schemes take a dramatic turn with red anchoring the palette another nod to the Palio theme. Contoured dresses and coordinated looks create elongated silhouettes. Sumptuous cashmere and elaborate jacquards reveal how knitwear has developed to highlight Pucci signatures. A dégradé needle punch technique appears even more impressive up-close on knitwear. Surfaces are all about surprise: catsuits and tattoo effect prints in second-skin mesh; fluffy faux fur vests and shaggy skirts; cocoon-shaped down coats in reflective silvery grey.
Consistent to every Camille Miceli collection is the celebration of individuality. Spanning youthful skater skirts to tailored black velvet suits; string bikinis under clear PVC raincoat to elegant, floating caftans; color-blocked blanket ponchos and denim in monochromatic black Marmo; bodycon party looks in jersey satin and silk cady to streamlined sport ensembles attitude always surfaces through the allure of the Pucci Family.
New stretch boots in glossy white patent can be worn to counterbalance the prints. Other shoes suit all occasions: sharp-edged booties with panels of print; polished printed loafers; hiking boots that burst with color; and the Pucci twist on Yeti boots, now available in three styles.
Pucceli, a sophisticated yet playful bag makes its debut. In alternating thermoformed lamb and calf leather, the sculpted shape is enhanced with an undulating tonal pattern either in black or pink and chain elements that are both decorative and functional. Jewelry explores alternate forms of the interlocking fish emblem and striking geometries that curve around the body. Among the lifestyle accessories, a Pucci hot water bottle cover is sure to provide a steady source of warmth and good vibes through the season.
“I wanted to explore new fashion dimensions while still being approachable. I love that this is a full wardrobe of wearable statement pieces so that everyone can push their Pucci personality even further.”,says Miceli.
