Rumour: Is Marco Zanini headed to Pucci?

Pucci's next pick?

According to sources close to the Italian fashion house, Marco Zanini, Schiaparelli’s previous creative director, could be heading to Emilio Pucci to take over the label famed for its colourful prints…

Florence-based brand Emilio Pucci could be seeing its last ready-to-wear collection created by Peter Dundas sooner than excpected, as a new rumour has surfaced that Italian designer Marco Zanini will be moving into the head role at the historic fashion house.

With no word on Dundas' future at Pucci, sources have speculated that the designer could be returning to Roberto Cavalli. While Zanini, who previously designed ready-to-wear collections at Schiaparelli and Rochas, as well as working at Versace, Halston and Dolce & Gabbana, is said to be taking over the reins at Pucci.

MSGM creative director Massimo Giorgetti has also taken a turn on the rumour mill as a top contender for the creative role at Pucci. Stay tuned to Buro 24/7 as the story unfolds...
