Isabella Rosellini models for Pucci

Isabella Rossellini returns to Rome for Pucci's tribute to the press. The actress closes Camille Miceli's catwalk for the collection which reworks the design created in 1965. After Capri, Sankt Moritz and Florence, the cheerful, colorful and festive caravan put together by Camille Miceli to relaunch Emilio Pucci landed in Rome on Thursday evening with a fashion show at Palazzo Altemps, a stone's throw from Piazza Navona. The event followed what is now the typical approach of the Artistic Director Camille Miceli, at the helm of the brand since 2022: a few guests, almost all of her friends, for two days of events, dinners, celebrations and, obviously, fashion, organized to embody a contemporary version of the chic and holiday style historically associated with the brand.

Evocative location aside, the Italian-French designer Camille Miceli pushes hard to leverage the unique imagery of the Pucci brand: she reworks for the first time the Vivara print, invented by Pucci in 1965. This print became one of Pucci's most famous designs. In hder collection, Camille revisits the palazzo pajamas , sends onto the catwalk a lot of caftans perfect for summer parties, breaks down the brightest prints to transform them into a single graphic sign on black garments, and dedicates the finale to evening dresses and tunics in terrycloth, another material much loved by the legendary creator . 



Highly likely to be very popular with customers. Top model Christy Turlington opened the show, dressed in a black caftan decorated with a target print on the neck, a motif that alternates with a swan, key, marble and fish prints that cover the bomber jackets, scarf dresses and skirts, plus asymmetrical tops and palazzo trousers.  Models Eva Herzigova, Angelina Kendall and Mariacarla Boscano continued the parade. Numerous Italian movie stars sat in the front row: Claudia Gerini, Anna Valle, Alessandra Mastronardi, Riccardo Scamarcio, Emma Marrone and the supermodel Marpessa.

Karl Lagerfeld, with whom Miceli worked at the beginning of her career, used to say that Pucci's prints were like tattoos: "The comparison always amused me and so I thought of pieces that really made them look like tattoos", she says.

Ursula, a delightful pug wearing the dog clothes launched for the occasion, also parades. Closing the show is a smiling Isabella Rossellini, who pirouettes in her full cape, greeting with a ringing "good evening!" the audience standing to applaud her; the photos of a 1990 Vogue Italia report with her as the protagonist, dressed in Pucci pieces decorated with the Vivara print, were the inspiration for the collection, as she herself explains in the interview after the show: this is the reason for her presence.

Everything seen on the catwalk, including the avalanche of accessories that complete the looks, is already on sale on the Pucci Website, with the guests in the front row, from Claudia Gerini to Emma Marrone to Patricia Arquette - sitting next to Silvia Venturini Fendi - dressed in same clothes that parade before their eyes. Camille is focused on leveraging events like this with the aim of arousing the interest and attention of the public, and the collection being available for purchase.
