Emilio Pucci has revisited the iconic Battistero scarf design to create a special six-piece collection called Cities of the World. The original Battistero scarf, released in 1957, is a brightly coloured print of the Piazza Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence, sketched by Emilio Pucci, the founder of the brand, himself. The new collection pays homage to Rome, Florence, New York, Paris, Shanghai and Hong Kong, with sketches hand-drawn in the house atelier in a style sympathetic to the original. Inspired by architectural landmarks, the scenes depict avenue Montaigne in Paris, the Shanghai skyline, Hong Kong’s skyscrapers and New York’s Central Park.
The Rome edition pictured here shows the city’s historical Spanish Steps, in vivid hues of fuchsia and turquoise. Printed in the silk district of Como, the scarves are made from the finest twill, hand-finished by artisans and presented in a brightly coloured gift box. The Rome edition makes an ideal keepsake to take home from the city.
