Not liking all these merry go rounds. Just when the brand has got an identity it's gets replaced with another person who attempts to give it something completely different. A different angle or a whiff of fresh air isn't needed really, not in such short span of time anyways.
If a particular designer feels he has got something to say he should do it with his own line, and not use the brand as his mouthpiece.
Marras left and oc turned kenzo into a circus, ghesquiere left and wang turned Balenciaga into industrial chic.
Not that the latter designers are necessarily bad, it is just adding confusion.
From a commercial standpoint this probably is good since it creates short term buzz, but not from a creativity point of view.
And for that matter, I think dundas did a great job at Pucci and should stay to continue honing the dna of the brand, changing it bit by bit overtime, not an overhaul like a new designer will turn it into.

Sources in Milan have told Style.com that, as has been rumored for months, tonight’s Emilio Pucci show will be Peter Dundas’ last for the brand. Dundas stepped into the role of creative director in 2009, taking the helm from Matthew Williamson and bringing new life and relevance to the label. His groovy yet romantic aesthetic was paired with plenty of sex appeal, making his designs a favorite of the daring among the fashion set—both Poppy Delevingne and Anja Rubik opted for dresses from the house for their weddings.

Reasons for the split have yet to fully emerge. A successor is expected to be announced soon. Ex-Schiaparelli designer Marco Zanini has been among those rumored to be in contention. According to our sources, Pucci has been in active discussions with Massimo Giorgetti of MSGM. That would suggest the company wants to move in a younger, less sexually provocative direction, which would be in keeping with a hiring trend we’re seeing at other houses. A rep for Pucci declined to comment.

Dundas exit confirmed during the show.

Really hope this is true. Dundas has been doing the same collection for years now, time to go. Zanini is such a great designer, his era at Rochas was one of my favorite in recent memory, and i'm sure he could give Pucci a breath of fresh air.
And in a few years "modern femininity" will be out and they'll all be replacing their designers again.

Quite honestly I can't really imagine anyone else at Pucci because Dundas really did an incredible job of redefining what the house was about. I kind of took for granted just how much work he did to take the history of Pucci and build upon it to make it a fully formed brand that was known for more than printed silks. He made it all seem pretty damn effortless.

Mutterlein does bring up a good point about Zanini's background at Versace though. Combine that background with the quirky extravagance he delivered at Schiaparelli and it could possibly work.

All in all though I really don't think this homogenizing effect going on in fashion lately. If in fact Pucci is seeking to bring in a new designer to do something along the lines of what's being done at Gucci then that's just sad.

Dundas would be a great replacement for Giorgio Armani!

Well, if you're looking for everything to look the same, then I suppose this is great news!

Not that I was ever even a big fan of Dundas' work at Pucci. But to his credit he did create a pretty definite and instantly recognizable aesthetic to Pucci that, as Spike413 has mentioned, was way more than just the prints.

Literally the last thing we need in fashion is another "designer" making collections of sweetly feminine or androgynous, "intellectual," artsy, introverted clothes.

^ As much as I hated Dundas' collections for Pucci, I agree.
The new Gucci looks dated in my opinion.

Whereas Zanini lacks any sort of signature, which is perfect for this hugely bland era in fashion.

LMAO at Zanini being considered for this position too. He has been rumored for every job in the fashion world... yet he hasn't done anything remarkable yet.
I couldn’t care less about Pucci though…

Dundas would have been perfect for Gucci. He definitely would have brought back that sexy, glamour element that everyone is missing.

I haven't really cared for Pucci in recent years, but I am relieved it is not Zanini.

I'm glad it's not zanini, because I'm sick of the pseudo intellectual feminine homogeneous stuff going around

On a side note that guy looks like an Italian David tenant

There's a post on the Vogue Runway's Instagram page calling him the "former designer" of Pucci.. does this mean he's out?
