“Gaiety is one of the most important elements I brought to fashion. I brought it through colour.” - Emilio Pucci.

Don Emilio Pucci, Marchese di Barsento was an Italian fashion designer and politician. He and his eponymous company are synonymous with geometric prints in a kaleidoscope of colors. 

Born into one of Florence’s most illustrious families, Emilio Pucci was a Renaissance man in every sense of the word, with a well-endowed background of travelling and education. What began with a streamlined ski outfit he initially designed for himself in 1947 soon turned him into a fashion phenomenon appealing to the eyes of glamorous socialites and jet-setters. Showcasing his first womenswear collection in 1951, his designs featured free-flowing lines with the allure of couture but that could still be worn both day and evening. Expanding to swimwear, sunglasses and children’s clothing, Pucci drew inspiration from his exotic travels, in particular the natural landscapes of the Mediterranean.

By the 1960s, Pucci was further thrust into greater status when Marilyn Monroe became a fan. She was photographed by George Barris in a number of Pucci's items in what would be some of her final photographs. After Monroe's death in 1962, she was interred wearing a Pucci dress.

As the decade progressed his designs were worn by everyone from Sophia Loren to Jackie Kennedy, as well as later pop icons such as Madonna in the early 1990s. In fashion history, especially during the period of the 1950s and 1960s, Pucci was a perfect transition example between luxurious couture and ready-to-wear in Europe and the North America.

His use of vivid colour and iconic 'Pucci prints' remain at the heart of the label, where Image Director Laudomia Pucci – the founder’s granddaughter – introduces a rotation of designers and brand partners that put their own spin on the brand's DNA each season.
