Some of the pieces are very nice actually, namely:
the last coat
the ribbed black dress
the pink off-shoulder

I also love what's happened to the print - it's much more open, less concentrated and brain breaking - more modern.
But the collection doesn't fit together - it's not all around one theme - it's just sort of drips and drabs with the furs and especially the knitwear.

I'm missing the typical Pucci print
The shoes look nice though

To be fair, Dundas was doing the "Balmain" look back at Ungaro, before everyone decided that short sequin dresses and thigh-slit gowns are only done by Decarnin.

However, the last dress on Natasha is suspiciously similiar to the F/W Balmain crystal/lace dress.

I don't mind the lack of print, because in cases where it is used, it is somewhat interesting. I do think this is a weak collection though, and it's obvious that Williamson was a much better fit. Dundas's work at Ungaro had a tough Parisian glamour that is missing here... I mean, those gowns are really, really bad.

Some pieces look very lovely. But i miss the Pucci touch with strong colors and graphics. Looks as some of you already said, very Balmain. Maybe a little bit too much of it.

its a nice collection, but seen all before!
it isn't PUCCI at all !!!! It will blend within a million other collections.. PUCCI is always so recognizable and I guess that it has made the house so successful for so many decades. Dundas will take Pucci to bankruptcy !!!!! Emilio is turning in his grave right now, I'm sure.

While this is Pucci AT ALL, I still love some of these pieces.


The presentation looks bad. Was there actually a show or was this a showing?

This is definitely different from the loud prints associated with the Pucci aesthetic, but it's really nice!
I love the shoes
It is a lot of leg for fall/winter, no?

Some of it's okay (read: I can't help but be irrevocably in like with anything that sparkles), some of it's hopelessly tacky. None of it looks like Pucci.
