The fashion industry has time and again played with androgyny and the concepts of merging masculine and feminine creations. This season, at the Milan Fashion Week, fashion house Emilio Pucci sent a bevy of stunning models clad in creations that blur the line between masculinity and femininity to some extent.
Although, the collection portrayed its fair share of glamorous gowns with furry details, designer Peter Dundas at Emilio Pucci made an evident effort to bring the collection in a masculine direction. This includes tailored jackets and oversized coats that were often seen paired with feminine creations like gowns.
"There is nothing more seductive than a woman who throws her man's jacket over an evening gown," the Associated Press quoted Dundas as saying before the show held in the frescoed halls of a central Milan palazzo.
The designer paired tuxedo jackets with cropped pants or a simple gown with transparent panels.
Menswear also provided inspiration for the fur designs that Dundas sent down the catwalk, its influence most evident in an orange creation paired over metallic golden pants.
Apart from this, another major attraction at the show was a black crocodile short gown with slits at the sides.
