Last season, Gucci had its golden moment with a new creative director—time to continue the streak! And now, will Prada still be the top magazine editors’ pick this time? Ah, que bella!
Who are you betting on? Let’s keep an eye on these brands this week.
We all know who the Emilio Pucci woman is: She is free and bohemian, worldly and eclectic. But as the creator of that look, former creative director Peter Dundas, steps down, will there be a new guise for the Emilio Pucci woman?

Will we love it even more?

The fashion world likes a little fun, too.
