Prince of Prints
Vintage Art Edition of Pucci glory
The Pucci story is a modern epic with its roots in renaissance Italy: the brand’s founder, the Marchese Emilio Pucci di Barsento, was a charismatic aristocrat whose lineage extends back to the 14th century. It is a story of evolution: a family company which grew from one tiny store to an international brand. And finally, it is a tale of innovation: Pucci was one of the first brands to bear a logo, and a pioneer of diversification into interiors, athletic wear, and accessories. It introduced free-moving, lightweight fabrics, pop-art prints, and a new color palette into womenswear, and constantly pushed fabric and printing technologies.
Featuring hundreds of photographs, drawings, and candid shots from the archive of the Emilio Pucci Foundation, this tome captures the breathtaking elegance and drama of a unique brand. Vanessa Friedman’s text places Emilio’s achievements in the context of fashion history, and provides insight into the remarkable Pucci dynasty.
Vintage Art Edition limited to just 500 signed and numbered copies, signed by Emilio’s daughter, Laudomia Pucci. Each book is bound in an original vintage Pucci fabric and is accompanied by four art prints of original drawings by designer Emilio Pucci.
