Navy Pucci silk

Born in 1914 to one of Florence’s most illustrious families, the Marquis Emilio Pucci di Barsento naturally embodied the jet set glamour of post-war Italy. Multilingual, well-traveled, American-educated, air force pilot, Olympic skier and aristocrat – he was a Renaissance man in every sense of the term. While recovering in Switzerland after the war in 1947, he designed a streamlined ski outfit, initially for himself and then for his enthusiastic socialite friends and was photographed by a fashion photographer and published in Harper’s Bazaar USA, giving rise to a fashion phenomenon that continues to reverberate to this day.
