Emilio Pucci by Taschen

inspiration

E and I spent a lot of time at Taschen looking through the Pucci Book. It displays a lot of his pattern paintings like the one featured above. The gorgeous book covers are all varied as they rolled out various Pucci fabrics to create the covers and once the fabric was gone they moved on to the next roll. The limited edition book includes four art prints and is signed by Pucci.

The Last Emperor

inspiration

I finally watched the documentary about Valentino’s reign in the fashion world and recommend that you see it if you haven’t already. Best scenes include the retrospective of his work, his five pugs and Karl Lagerfeld whispering to Valentino; “Look what we do. Everyone else — they are making rags.” If you are curious about the formula that comprises the Valentino red it’s 100% magenta, 100% yellow and 10% black.
