The Emilio Pucci Autumn/Winter 2011 Collection by Peter Dundas rediscovers Austria. Landhausmode goes through a serious revamp and glamorisation. The dirndl, the traditional dress of Austria with its fetishist bodice becomes the icon of the collection. Ornamental details inspired from the Palace of Versailles enrich the collection. The silhouettes are slim and classic with a contemporary flair and definitely not conservative. Transparencies and revealing cuts create a voluptuous overall look. Corset inspired, delicate laces highlight the bust. Embroidery and luxurious fabrics add extra richness to the collection. The relatively austere lines are treated in an overwhelmingly abundant, almost baroque manner, as if emerging from a Grimm Brothers fairytale. The classic Pucci patterns appear in selected dresses, with a colour palette inspired by Austrian mountaintops.
