E M I L I O P U C C I – LA FEMME DRAGON
I think he is the winner of the so far presented fashion weeks in NY and Milan, although Paris hasn´t occured yet . Peter Dundas is a wonderful designer and I am so happy he came again with « a kick-ass » collections, this time for PUCCI.
This asymetric kimono-pants-mini skirt, and maxi skirt all in one is a must have, it is an incredible design that will be a hit in all the red carpets, all the most sought-after stores, all the it girls, and all over the world. This silhouette is a modern twist to what a modern geisha will be. This a new piece, a new take in asian dressing. This is the Dragon Girl, the girl who is not afraid in revealing her most intimate parts , or showing a little bit of them.
This is the daytime DRAGON GIRL , I totally see this girl getting dressed at her office, and going to a power meeting, a power cocktail, and a power party. This is the girl who is not afraid of anaything, but at the same time, is a romantic girl inside, because the white element of the outfit, the transparency bring the angelic side, the softness of the animal print is not on our faces, is a subte version of the tattoo that we see so agresively on the metros, the subways, the skateboard park, and in all terms of urban language.
1.- I love the contrast, eventhough is the same color, PETER DUNDAS made the statement of contrasting diferent textures. It was very unpredictable that he made the transparency on the bottom, to make the bottom lightweight, to bring out femeninity.
2.- The « NEW KIMONO », it breaks the classic look of the traditional kimono, and he brings it to a diferent level, and gives it an occidental touch. It is also new, beacuse, he was able to make it asymetrical without making it sleazy.
3.- The detail of the « matelassé » linings, makes the piece exciting,
4.- There is an increíble broderie work, mixed with nets, and lace.
WHY I WOULD BUY THIS LOOK
Just by the simple reason that you get two outfits in one. You have the dress, and also the pants.
Do you really want me to tell you how to wear them? I guess, that if you have been reading this blog, you can take your own desition by now.
This is the signature of his collection, I see Indochine being revisited by this clever designer, who thinks about us, the women, the real women who are constantly asking for freshness, and creativity in a wearable way.
I totally see myself in this outfit, but at the same time, I see this piece being photographed by top editors in the world, who I am sure fell in love already with this collection.
I think everyone out there , shares the same feelings that I do.
He didn´t use black for this statement piece, he used a piece of wardrobe already accepted by the real woman, and he is being able to mix the military which is already a classic, with the dragón print, which is reinforcing the value of this piece which is a new take on the militar jacket tat we see all over the world on the coolest girl.
This is the warrior geisha.
HOW DO I WEAR THIS IN REAL LIFE ???
Remember , that we all get excited when we see pieces like this on the runway, they take over our feelings, but sometimes we forget how to make it sexy, and most importantly, believable in our real life shcedules???
1.- Take the belt off, and it will become inmediately your day and evening jacket.
Imagine a minidress in gold, and this fabulous jacket over it? isn´t it a killer? isn´t it sexy? SURE !!! It can be long or short.
2.- This is also part of the street wear, daytime , and also night time, this is new militare jacket.
3.- The secret is: WEAR IT OPEN, so it will become a day look.
They are the show signature of this collection, it is a platform, and also, is in electric navy blue the color of the future.
This is piece is just perfect! Why?
She is wearing the nightlife piece of the Dragon Girl, thanks to this piece , I am in love with black again.
Black a color that I totally disliked in the beginning of the collection, cameback as my favorite.
I have the right to love and hate colors, this is the reason why, this time, I will be wearing black in a diferent way, with the dragon prints.
I see the animal spirit in this piece, it is not only black, or puré black. We see the dragón living in the woman´s body. This is a painting over a girl’s body.
ADVICE OF STYLING
It is a very easy piece of styling,
If you have skinny lega, you can combine it with :
skinny black leggins
skinny black denim
skinny black leather leggins
I am sure a lot of women will ,love this outfit , beacause it is very eaasy to wear, even a pregnant lady could wear this outfit with no problem.
THE HAIR AND MAKEUP
The hair is just simply perfect, she is just wonderfully coiffed! The middle part makes it dreamy and makes her look like she is coming out of a forest, or she is ready to jump on her horse.
I am not crazy about the makeup, the lips are too natural, and goes to the contexto, and the designer lacked of a touch of glamour just to let us know that this is a real girl , not a character from a medieval movie, it is too literal.
I love for the first time, this show over all the collections, it just simply works with the whole entire idea of the outfit.
Thanks god they put a big platform show, it is a sandal , and the touch of gold that gives the subte accent.
This show elevates the girl, for this tupe of silhouette, you need to be elevated to make the outfit look sublime and gorgeous.
The shoe has a touch a gladiator woman that goes all the way up to the leg without climbing it. The show helps the panas look even better.
