After the Emilio Pucci Collection debuted this season, the audience all wanted to know one thing: Who is Peter Dundas? A Norwegian native and fashion director for French Furrier Revillon for years, Dundas has done his time at Ungaro and now has stepped into the spotlight as Creative Director at Pucci. And stepped into the spotlight he has…

The women on the catwalk wore adorable–wait, no, SEXY–strapless dresses, covered by military jackets and oversized fur coats, knee boots and 4-Inch gladiator sandals. Hot, Hot, Hot Mr. Dundas indeed! However, here at Denimology, while we just loved all the details, our favorite bits were, of course, the denim. And, I will definitely tell you, they were exceptional. Dundas gave us not only a skinny jean, but a mid-rise, medium-wash skinny with some fab side bolted-cargo zippers thrown to it. He designed a damaged silken jean in deep grays and purples. The stretch jeans were some of the tightest of the season, and the zippers were placed up the backside to boot. There was an amazing denim-inspired clutch purse and last but certainly not least, one of the most stunning pieces of the evening, a patchwork denim strapless mini dress. Pieced together by a myriad of acid and vintage washes and then foiled with simple laces and those undeniable Pucci swirls, the dress was art.

There were days long ago when women rushed to the stores to not only buy Gucci, but Pucci too. Can Peter Dundas put them back on the map?
