Born in Naples in 1914, Pucci, who had the title of Marchese di Barsento, lived and worked in his family’s palazzo in Florence. But despite his ties to Florentine history, Pucci’s work was a symbol of modernism, featuring bright hues and twisted geometric patterns. “Is there any other aristocratic figure who could have—in the same era—waved heraldic flags dating back to the Renaissance period as he led a team of horses through the ancient city; and also designed wildly colorful patterns to decorate airplanes for the burgeoning jet set?” writes Menkes in the introduction of the book.

Though he found great success in fashion, counting superstars like Marilyn Monroe among his many fans, his creativity can be found in other areas. A trend that his house still continues today.
