Educated, world-traveller, air force pilot, Olympic skier and aristocrat, Marquis Emilio Pucci de Barsento was born to one of the most notorious families in Florence, Italy. While teaching skiing, he popularized a ski outfit. His innovated stretch fabric targeted the contemporary and active woman. Pucci developed the androgynous ‘Capri’ pants for his boutique on the island of Capri. His designs are milestones in Italy’s chic, relaxed and sportswear.
