Remember how we used to laugh at our mothers’ brightly coloured (read: loud) prints that seem to adorn all their clothes and accessories in the 60’s? I found out that the person who was responsible for all those bright prints was Emilio Pucci. His distinctively patterned Pucci prints used as many as 16 colours in a single design. Some of the gorgeous women photographed in Pucci’s creations were Elizabeth Taylor, Lauren Bacall, Gina Lollobrigida and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
Oddly for someone who used to laugh at my mum’s oh-so-fashionable psychedelic prints, I was actually attracted Emilio Pucci’s Canvas Small Tote Bag. Somehow am able to tolerate them better as I grew older. In fact, I actually like some of those prints myself. Hey, am not THAT old, ok?
Emilio Pucci’s Canvas Small Tote Bag retails at USD$ 400 but at Designers Imports these beauties are going for only USD$ 149. That’s over 60% off the original retail price!

Or dress up your favourite black dress with these Pucci bags for that added oomph when you are out on those hot dates.
