The perfect match can mean a lot of things but we (still) cannot get over the excitement of Mr Peter Dundas heading over (back) to Roberto Cavalli’s creative designer post, that for us is the perfect match.
Peter Dundas was born in Oslo, Norway, his father is Norwegian and his mother American. After high school, he took off to New York City to attend Parsons the New School for Design before heading to Paris to begin his fashion career (in a not so shabby place) scoring a job in Gaultier’s atelier. Next stop was Christian Lacroix (who himself designed for Pucci) then Cavalli, followed by his first creative director job in 2007 at Emanuel Ungaro. In 2008 Dundas became the artistic director of the legendary fashion house Pucci and that’s where he has been creating his magic lately.
19.th of March major fashion house Roberto Cavalli announced that Peter Dundas had been appointed the creative director position, and we couldn’t be more excited for this great match. Let’s just think about it for a second, what every “worth-mentioning-fashionista” knows is that, Dundas likes to have a good time, and his clothes reflect just that. We don’t know about you but when planning for having a good good time, we definitely think a bit of Cavalli never hurt nobody, right?
In a chat between Pharell Williams and Peter Dundas (what a hot duo) in Interviewmagazine Peter Dundas gave an explanation of himself as a designer stating:
“I’m not intellectual at all as a designer. Whatever I’m into at the moment is usually what becomes the collection. Like, last year, I was super-into diving, and the whole collection that season became about aquatic life. The year before was my first collection for Pucci, and I was just starting the job and working in his Renaissance Palazzo, where Pucci is headquartered, so that inspired me.”
We are so excited to see what catches his attention and inspiration for his first collection at Cavalli in September 2015.
Until then let’s take a look at his SS15 show back in September 2014 for Pucci.
In all honesty we could’ve easily thought this was Roberto Cavalli? Maybe he never really left, mentally. In any case we are loving it.
High five Mr Dundas!
