In recent pop culture, the tribal-hippie look seems to have been overtaken by boring and limited combinations—common patterns like paisley and damask, pastel colors that make tribal look cute instead of fierce, and the hippie style look bland instead of bizarre. There are so many other patterns that can be played around with and so many color combinations that can be used. Emilio Pucci rises above the norm!

I was very surprised to see how there were so many conservative or modest options in many of his pieces, and yet they were far removed from boring. His patterns are like an explosion of ethereal colors forced out of an otherwise empty and dull universe.

The focus of every outfit put together with an Emilio Pucci piece is the work of art found deep in the pattern and color and less on the silhouette of the body wearing the outfit. This may be good news for those who may be insecure about their bodies, but for those who are confident with theirs, the pieces have an interesting effect of drawing more attention to the person wearing it—their personality, their insights, their taste.

Wearing an Emilio Pucci piece invites conversation and wonder.

Below, you can check out some of my favorite patterns from his Fall 2012 collection and Emilio Pucci’s fun yet wacky designs for Braniff International Airways’ stewardess uniforms. You can also invest in some of Emilio Pucci pieces at Harrods—out of this world kaleidoscope patterns that will leave your mind drifting into another dimension!

Emilio Pucci’s uniform designs for Braniff International Airway’s stewardesses/hostesses:

Emilio Pucci was determined to bring “The End of the Plain Plane” to Braniff International Airways’ stewardess uniforms which were worn from 1965-1977. They were separate components that were to be added or removed, depending on the weather conditions. One of the more conspicuous innovations was a bubble helmet to protect the hostesses’ perfect 60s hairdo! I personally think it looks awesome and so sci-fi, a la Logan’s Run. His uniforms got so popular that even Barbie had some Pucci uniforms. See below for some photos.
