Fashion designer Emilio Pucci is best known for his tight shantung “Pucci pants” and vividly printed silk dresses and blouses. His colorful, informal uniforms for Braniff flight attendants were groundbreaking. Later, Pucci branched into men’s fashions, perfume, and ceramics.
After Emilio’s death in 1992 his daughter, Laudomia Pucci, continued to design under the Pucci name. The French Louis Vuitton-Moet-Hennessy Group luxury goods empire acquired 67% of Pucci in 2000. Laudomia became Image Director, while LVMH brought in major designers such as Christian Lacroix (creative director 2002-5), and in October 2005, Matthew Williamson and Peter Dundas from 2009. Other designers who have worked for the label include Stephan Janson and Julio Espada.
Emilio Pucci clothes and accessories are sold through Emilio Pucci and Rossignol boutiques worldwide and in high-end department stores designed by Lena Pessoa, mostly feature the designer’s original brightly coloured, often swirly, prints or new designs in his original distinct style. The fashion house produces ready-to-wear clothes and accessories for women, in addition to a small range of men’s accessories. In the past, the house has produced a more comprehensive range of men’s wear, including a line in partnership with Ermenegildo Zegna, which included men’s jackets lined with Pucci printed fabric, especially for American department store Saks Fifth Avenue.
Pucci boutiques in the U.S., all designed by the Brazilian Lena Pessoa, are located in New York City, Las Vegas, Bal Harbour, Palm Beach, Beverly Hills, Boston, South Coast Plaza, East Hampton, New York, and coming soon to Dallas. The newest of the stores just opened at 855 Monroe Ave. in New York City. Celebrity clients include Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway, singer Kylie Minogue and presenter Alexa Chung. Emilio Pucci also designed the costumes for Rita Ora’s Radioactive Tour. As of March 2014, Alessandra Carra is no longer the CEO of Pucci.
