Founder Emilio Pucci, had a passion for women and an eye for color and design. Emilio’s talents allowed him to create a fashion house that introduced free-moving, lightweight fabrics, pop art prints, and a new color palette into women’s wear. During the 50’s his beautiful prints could be seen on fashion icons such as Jackie Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe.
On May 15th 2013, Vanessa Friedman, fashion editor of the Financial Times, will release her book Emilio Pucci with four different cover designs, each depicting an original pattern from the Pucci collections.
Featuring hundreds of photographs, drawings, and candid shots from the archive of the Emilio Pucci Foundation, this stylish read captures the breathtaking elegance and drama of Pucci, who was one of the first brands to use logos. Vanessa Friedman’s book highlights Emilio’s achievements in the fashion industry, and provides insight into the Pucci Empire, which now spans over 300 locations…a long way from the original Pucci location in Capri.
