A carefree sensibility shaped Peter Dundas' collection for Pucci. Models emerged wearing ultra mini silhouettes, suede thigh-high boots and a series of pop pastel fur jackets, all with the same uniform blunt fringe and long flowing hair.

It felt like Dundas was capturing the mood of the sixties whilst referencing the stylistic elements of the seventies with this collection, adding his own modern tweaks. He looked back to Pucci's archive by revisiting the 1960s Otto print, featured on silk blouses and reinterpreted to create abstract patterns on crystal beaded embroidered tops.

Prints weren't only in pastel this season, but in monochrome, forming the backdrop to studded jackets and a graphic angora knit cape, complete with fur collar. Goose feathers sprouted from mink coats, whist angora and feathers were also manipulated as fur. Many of these designs were made of a palette that Dundas referred to as 'sugar-inflected,' consisting of candy pinks, bright blues and pale greens. Sweet as.
