Miss Pucci fragrance launches

September 28, 2010

Peter Dundas designed a storming S/S ’11 collection for Pucci during this week’s Milan catwalk shows. Flouncy, feminine, long, flowing and pretty, the collection was less original Pucci and more full on pretty but perhaps this is where the house needs to go to ramp up it’s star rating for today’s little Miss Pucci.  Kylie Minogue and Jada […]
