I purchased a Pucci beach bag last year, it’s bright blue, pink and white in terry cloth. The busy print was exactly what I came to expect and love from the iconic design house. Then comes hot young thing Peter Dundas and turns that all around. The Pucci collection for Fall 2010 showed a decidedly darker edge. The multi color prints were reinterpreted into black, tonal patterns. The muse seemed to be a luxe bohemian, but with a cosmopolitan edge, perhaps Bianca Jagger?The handbags were missing their signature prints. Instead I saw dark, edgy colors with long dramatic fringe. I saw haute hippie feathers hanging off another, and big messenger bags with wide straps befitting a chic nomad.
