Fausto Puglisi AW14

Fausto Puglisi has done it again and by that I mean created an insanely fun, colourful and wearable sexy collection. Geometric coloured shapes are cut and paste together creating a collage of colour set back against imagery of the statue of liberty. The circus and jester referencing works perfectly with leather and gold trimmings while heavy gold block embellishment adds the perfect touch of texture. The closing look is by far my fav, channeling a little of that Emilio Pucci SS14 90’s beading and naturally, worn back with leather. While Anna Dello Russo has repeatedly contributed to elevating his status, Puglisi has done plenty for himself and the beaded leather jacket of this collection, will undoubtedly end up on ADR’s back come next week with many new eyes being exposed to the Puglisi genius…

  1. nailed it. It’s sassy, saucy, flirty, bold and a little bit rock n roll (and as you rightfully said Dan, totally fun… particularly in a city that takes it’s fashion mostly with a very hefty dose of seriousness and/or heralds collections that require deep artistic analysis – think Miuccia Prada’s SS14 offering, which was applauded for it’s artistic integrity [and the rest]). But I think what Puglisi has done most importantly is create a collection that is simply not for everyone, ensuring we won’t be seeing it on the likes of Olivia P. any time soon. That’s a tricky balance to strike for any designer because obviously the product has to be saleable, but if it’s too commercial, well… #fail. So cheers to such a zesty collection! let the fun and games continue!!

    what does everyone else think hmmmmmm?! go on! we know you wanna! lay it on me!

    (p.s. that’s a particularly good review Dan… for whatever my humble opinion is worth šŸ™‚
