Emilio Pucci (1914-1992) had a passion for women, a visionary sense of style, and an eye for color and design. With these talents he created a fashion house unlike any other. By the early ’50s his boutique on the isle of Capri was catering to wealthy sophisticates, heiresses and movie stars buying his “Capri pants”, silk scarves and lightweight separates.
Nautical sailor tops and Madonna’s conical bra are coming to London next year in an exhibition of the work of fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier.
“The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier” will open at the Barbican Centre in April 2014.
