Fausto Puglisi has been one of the most exciting Sicilian designers around. Picking up the hot blooded feisty Italian woman where Dolce and Gabbana left her off.
This prefall collection was made fresh and new by giving us inky fading animal prints and slapping them on generous shapes with dropped shoulders and long hemlines.
Some of my favorite pieces include that sumptuous mixed animal chimera sweater and that long to-the-floor Morticia Adams does Sicily dress.
I’m very curious to see what becomes of Puglisi’s work over time.
