We have always loved Pucci and have waited and waited for a book that really showed the extraordinary genius of Emilio Pucci in its full glory. This book more than does just that. Some biography and discussion of the development of the style throughout, but mostly lots and lots of Pucci designs and clothing galore.
Just imagine a book in a huge 14-1/2 inch square format with more than 400 pages filled with full-page color photographs, both vintage and contemporary, of wonderful Pucci clothing and accessories, beautiful models wearing fabulous Pucci creations and full color reproductions of the original design drawings. Or a drawing, in full color, for an original Pucci design turned into an exquisite creation. The book covers decades of design and none of it looks in the least dated. And speaking of "covers", the book is even bound in a Pucci fabric which is then protected in a Brodart-like wrap.
Full disclosure: my wife wore Pucci at our wedding forty years ago; solid purple Pucci silk blouse with a silk velvet miniskirt (it was the 'Sixties) in a gorgeous complementary Pucci pattern. Perfect with her red hair.
Even if you simply enjoy great style and fashion in general, you will love this book. Well worth the price, this is an instant classic and sure to become a collector's item.
THE BEAUTIFUL COVER, WITH ITS SILKY LINNING, THE PICTURES, THE WAY IT TAKES YOU TO THE MARVELLOUS WORLD OF ONE OF THE GREATEST FASHION ICONS REALLY WORTHS THE PRICE. DO GET IT. YOU WON'T EVER REGRET HAVING THIS BOOK AT HOME.
just if i can have this kind of cover design then the one i receive.
