Emilio Pucci by Vanessa Friedman

As the proud owner of an original pair of Pucci leggings and a lover of vibrant colour and pattern, I have long been a fan of the visionary fashion house of Pucci.

Emilio Pucci created his boutique on the island of Capri in the 1950’s, selling to wealthy women and movie stars, who loved his silk scarves and separates. By the end of the decade Marilyn Monroe and Jacqueline Kennedy were wearing his clothes and they soon became favourites with the international jet set around the world.

This beautiful book chronicles the Pucci story from it’s aristocratic roots in renaissance Italy to it’s current success as a major international brand. Featuring hundreds of drawings and photographs from the archive of the Pucci Foundation, this huge and beautiful book provides an insight into the Pucci dynasty and perfectly captures the essence of the brand.

Not a cheap at £135, but worth trying to get hold of one of the first 10,000 copies, as they are bound in one of the recent prints from the Pucci collection.

Available from Taschen books.
