Pucci - Milan Fall 2008
(MILAN) Roll Call: Carla Fendi, Ken Downing, Hilary Alexander, Suzy Menkes, Ken Downing, Julie Gilhart, Nina Garcia, Hamish Bowles
Chic Report: Matthew Williamson's vintage Sports Illustrated-inspired fall collection for Pucci debuted in front of a white frosted icicle wall. No wonder that sporty outerwear reigned supreme, and quilted silk print jackets and a hooded wool knit parka paired with minis are perfect for ski bunnies in Aspen or the Alps. New prints such as the Cristallo, Monderosa, and Alpi were introduced, topped off with après-ski accessories like lattice crystal clutches, graphic silver bangles, icicle-encrusted belts, and lace-up platform boots."I loved all of that warm skiwear," raved Delphine Arnault. "It made me want to get on the slopes. The short and long dresses were fun and elegant--I would of course love to wear it all!"
