Pucci sends Ice Spice down the River Arno

...and more fashion news you missed

Every so often, a fashion brand will shed its skin and reintroduce itself as a figure of aspiration. That happened this week when Ice Spice attended Pucci’s latest show in Florence – artistic director Camille Miceli’s first spectacle since taking the helm in 2021. Styled by Dazed’s fashion director Imruh Asha, a carousel of swirl-printed looks arrived on a boat and wound through the banks of the Arno River as Miceli paid homage to the emblem Emilio Pucci designed for the Apollo 15 astronauts in 1971. As a result, everything had a space-age mood: silk dresses crackled in gold foil surfaces, caftans were given the gift of flight in feather-weight fabrications, and a smattering of all-white looks called to mind traditional astronaut uniforms. For the finale, Miceli showed eight catsuits, piled in layers of jewellery and body chains, that seemed to evoke the image of intergalactic warriors in classic 70s cinema.

And then there was the Met Gala, where Doja Cat appeared as Choupette and Rihanna and A$AP Rocky were almost upstaged by a cockroach.
