It's clear that the inspiration behind the Emilio Pucci Spring 2010 ready-to-wear collection shown at Milan Fashion Week is the sun-drenched shores of retro Capri, with a number of fashions that are inspired by the sea, scuba diving and the sand.

Elegantly-draped long skirts and dresses in airy, almost diaphanous materials make me think immediately of springtime at sea, and the slices of metallic shimmer that dot a number of patterned fabrics certainly evoke the flash of a fish fin underwater. Check out the gallery above to see some of my favorite pieces from the Emilio Pucci Spring 2010 ready-to-wear collection.
