Emilio Pucci AW14

A charge of huntresses in wild furs, velvet tuxedos and gowns dripping with beads

TextSusie LauPhotographyPaolo Musa

Initial reaction:

Hanging out in Joshua Tree and feeling at one with the savage earth. Except these girls don't break a sweat in the desert. They're wearing Navajo-inspired knits and heavily beaded dresses.  

How they wore it: 

Some of the models had a curious smear of gold on their temples as though it were a cult sign. What was the significance of the ones who were touched with gold and the ones who weren't?  

Model behaviour:

Eva Herzigova led the charge in a jet black beaded gown, preceding a passage of gold-rush dresses, dripping with metal chains and beading.

Stand out looks: 

In amongst the embellished signature prints and Orchiedea curls, there were 1970s tinged velvet tuxedo suiting, fitting into the mood of the season, worn with neck tie blouses.  

Animal spirit: 

All things furry have been dominating the shows but artistic director Peter Dundas gave his girls the "Call of the Wild" with fox fur pieces, pattern-printed pony skin and patchwork mink on parkas. They're primitive huntresses.
