The moment for Emilio Pucci and Tomo Koizumi is one frothy nod to the layered heritage of the brand, preserving its richness with a quiet levity surprisingly apt for our current clime. The collection was one Selva print away from the urbane humor of Massimo Giorgetti’s archives, and more than a few dimensions off from Peter Dundas’ reign. Following on the elevated streetwear of Christelle Kocher’s capsule, Koizumi has established a wispy index all his own.

A carousel of outsized organza looks, 11 in total, honor the codes tacit to the Italian spirit, tailoring Pucci’s Vetrate print into plush opulence mimetic of Koizumi’s buzzy NYFW unveiling. Now those tiers are cut down, the tulles still luxuriously transportive, a supple maximalism playing to the audience at home. It’s a Rococo take on Pucci’s minimalistic tentpoles, offering femininity in form and sophistication in shape, never straying far from the Tuscan fold.

Elsewhere, the summery hues and plissé shorts of the Spring/Summer 21 collection offer the ultimate respite from months abiding scaled lockdown orders. Pajama palazzo pants, embroidered prints, and a triumph of silk cady, twill, georgette and crêpe de chine mean comfort isn’t without style. Pucci’s Piazzetta di Capri, La Canzone del Mare, and Conchiglie prints raise a Capri inspired joie de vivre to eddy the season as we embark onto cooler forecasts. And as our times again shift and life returns to its rhythm, Pucci extends a disciplined elegance wrapped up in ‘60s styled silhouettes, where a whispered poise is never far off.
