Dundas's Debut Fall 2009 Pucci Collection Minimizes Prints

Feb 28 2009 - 1:51pm

>> Matthew Williamson's gone from Pucci [1], and he seems to have taken the brand's bright, kaleidoscopic prints with him.  Peter Dundas is in the house, and his interpretation of the Pucci [2] heritage for Fall 2009 involves darker, moodier colors with a rock and roll vibe; the slit-up-to-there strapless gowns and super-minidresses are drawing [3] Balmain [4] comparisons from a number of sources [5].  But critics — although some are unsure [6] about the lack of prints — seem ready to give Dundas a chance: management did want [7] a new, modern image, after all.  WWD encouraged [8]Dundas's movement beyond the print heritage: "The fact is that [Pucci] has to."  The Moment agreed [9] that the collection felt "relevent to the times and the house," as did Cathy Horyn [10]: " If Dundas can develop 'the product,' as retailers say, he may just have something at Pucci."
