Not that this was a huge surprise, but last week Peter Dundas was appointed as the creative director at Roberto Cavalli, the brand he previously worked from 2002 to 2005 before moving to Emilio Pucci. For Dundas it was "the home coming" and for Cavalli - "the desire to evolve a style that combines glamour, tradition and innovation."
His position at Pucci was swiftly filled by hiring Massimo Giorgetti, one of the Italy's most talented young designers, founder and creative force of MSGM, the 4-year-old brand known for its prints and colours. He will be combining his two roles and reveal the first Emilio Pucci Spring/Summer 2016 collection in during September fashion week.
There's no doubt that Dundas will fit into his Cavalli role perfectly, but I am very curious to see how Georgetti will interpret his love of modern shapes when he designs for the iconic brand made incredibly sensual and very couture by its now former creative director. I really, really hope he won't turn Pucci into another "street style in flipflops vision" - it will absolutely break my heart.
