Pucci was the kingpin of textile reinvention and beautiful prints in the 1950s and 1960s. His designs revolutionized the world of fashion, knocking the previous trend of dull colors and heavy fabrics out of fashion and developing a fan following that was almost unheard of at the time. Today, original Pucci prints from the beginning of his career are highly collectible items. This does not mean Pucci has been relegated to history--the brand’s current designs are equally coveted items in every fashionista's wardrobe. The Pucci empire had taken off, and soon there were dozens of items that sported the Pucci prints, and women like Marilyn Monroe, Lauren Bacall and Jacqueline Kennedy were seen in Pucci clothes. Lingerie, handbags, shoes, wallets, sleepwear and more were added to the line.
