Peter Dundas Triumphs at Pucci for A/W’13 with his 1960s Getty Girl

The catwalks are full of it for Autumn/Winter ’13 – 1960s references. 

From three quarter length sleeves to short collarless jackets, vivid almost fluoro colours that pop, minis and A-line shifts and the odd ode to the first acid psychedelia, it’s all there. Some would say that vintage references are becoming harder to plunder and this is one of the last bastions which hasn’t been quite re-worked but suffice it to say, some houses have more claim to ’60s heritage than others. Step forward Peter Duncan at Pucci who showed a forward-thinking and bang-on sexy collection paired with thigh high, suede, pointed boots, blunt fringes and heaps of ‘it-girl’ attitude. This was one collection that swung it, though certainly more Bond Street and Via della Spiga than Carnaby street. This was one hot hip chic.
Following on from his stellar collection last season, Dundas drew on Pucci’s trademark swirly Otto print to create an air of optimism and feel-good amidst Italy’s worsening economic recession. 
Micro mini skirts and dresses skimmed thighs and looked powerful not pouty when paired against ‘the boot of the season’, that awesome, thigh-skimming suede seductress than only the tall and thin of leg will master. 
Low slung belts and pastel Pucci print long sleeved slips looked divine and so now, as did the capes, fluted hem minis, short double-breasted pea coats, shaggy furs and erstwhile Talitha Getty’esque feel to the whole show.
Additional oomph luxury and Italian grandiose came in the long shaggy furs or trimmed fur coats, intricate cut-out detailing, beautiful gilt lace and sophisticated tiger print detailing. If this sounds OTT, it wasn’t. What Dundas has further revealed this season, is his taste level in nailing a house and making it relevant to a powerful, sexy modern woman who can revel in this ultra heady lifestyle as well as creating want in those who aspire it.
