Emilio Pucci was the Marchese di Barsento, the fashion designer was born into one of Florence's oldest noble families. He and his eponymous company are synonymous with geometric prints in a kaleidoscope of colours that everybody can recognize anywhere. These pictures were probably taken at the Pucci palace, where he lived and worked his whole life. The beginning in fashion for Don Emilio is simple: Initially, he used his knowledge of stretch fabrics to produce a swimwear line in 1949, but soon moved onto other items such as brightly coloured, boldly patterned silk scarves. Stanley Marcus of Neiman Marcus encouraged him to use the designs in blouses and then a popular line of wrinkle-free printed silk dresses. The “Around That Time, portfolios are literally a time capsule of style and design from the 1960s-1980s. The images chosen for this portfolio are a who’s who of the tastemakers and influencers from one of the most exciting and innovative periods of the twentieth century. Never before was there a moment quite like this, and never before or since has there been a photographer of such unique talent as Horst P. Horst.”

  • Horst P. Horst German-American, 1906-1999 (born Horst Paul Albert Bohrmann) was one of the towering figures of 20th-century fashion photography. Best known for his work with Vogue—who called him “photography’s alchemist”—Horst rose to prominence in Paris in the interwar years, publishing his first work with the magazine in 1931. In the decades that followed, Horst’s experimentations with radical composition, nudity, double exposures, and other avant-garde techniques would produce some of the most iconic fashion images ever, like Mainbocher Corset and Lisa with Harp (both 1939). As The New York Times once described, “Horst tamed the avant-garde to serve fashion.” Though associated most closely with fashion photography, Horst captured portraits of many of the 20th century’s brightest luminaries, dabbling with influences as far-ranging as Surrealism and Romanticism. “I like taking photographs because I like life,” he once said. “And I love photographing people best of all because most of all I love humanity.”
