A monograph on the Italian fashion brand Pucci. The book focusses on the life and career of the firm's founder, Emilio Pucci and the brand's hey-day in the fifties and sixties. Also discussed are developments since the 1970s and the brand's iconic patterned fabrics and accessories. The text is supported by many archive and contemporary images. The Pucci fabric on the binding makes the book a fashion accessory in itself.
