Emilio Pucci's Vampire Hunter Sex Appeal

Piercing black-lined eyes, chunky chokers with a cross pendant, lots of sexy lace, silk and smart blazers in primary vampire colours - red and black, made me think of dark Gothic times, Romania and popular Japanese anime series - Vampire Hunter D.

Emilio Pucci's Spring Summer 2012 collection had models look like the walking dead with giant maxi skirts that resembled a flamenco dancer's.

Vampire brides ready to be sacrificed, all dressed in virginal white and elegant see-through lace dresses and tops.

Dark is the night where not even the moon will rise when these Emilio Pucci babes walk the streets in sharply tailored blazers, smoky eye-shadow, skull tops and oozing vampire seduction in plunging necklines, revealing neck, collarbones and leaving little to one's imagination in Emilio Pucci's Spring Summer 2012 collection.

Away from traditional multicoloured, boring geometric prints that once belonged to the signature Pucci look, Oslo-born Norwegian designer at Emilio Pucci, Peter Dundas, used plenty of lace, beading, crochet and embroidery to reveal the sexiness of vamps with bare midriffs and peek-a-boo négligée-like dresses.

Peter Dundas was appointed the artistic director at Emilio Pucci since 2008 and was lauded for introducing a more sinister, younger and more sophisticated edge into the brand.

Peter Dundas has worked for Christian Lacroix, Jean Paul Gaultier, Roberto Cavalli and Emanuel Ungaro.
