Pucci Black Silk Embroidered Turquoise Stone Bolero Jacket, 2006
Emilio Pucci is a legendary master of prints. While his signature consists of vibrant, psychedelic prints that are creatively unrivaled, the house has made efforts to streamline and modernize the Pucci aesthetic since the namesake’s passing in the early 90s. Since then, designers such as Christian Lacroix have kept the spirit of Pucci creativity while adding an updated maturity to the mix. From the Spring 2006 collection, this bolero is done in a rich black silk/cotton blend.
On the front of the jacket, a floral motif swirls about in carefully crafted metallic beading of a pewter tone that adds a perfect contrast to the deep black silk jacket. Around the neck, ovular turquoise pieces and clear stones have me set providing a pop of color to the bolero.
The beadwork elevates this design and evokes a more traditional European couture flavor. With rounded shoulders and a nicely tailored fit, this bolero speaks to a new era for the chez Pucci and makes for an excellent formal or event jacket. This bolero can be seen in the images to the left on that season’s runway.
