Pucci designer Peter Dundas walks Harper’s Bazaar through a sample twenty-four hour day in his life, and while there are the usual high fashion quirks (“I prefer sleeping naked.

7:00 A.M. Seeing that my apartment is in Paris and I work in Florence, I usually go to work by airplane; it’s an hour-and-a-half flight. Really, I am in an airplane four or five times a week. I always carry a marker–always. I keep sketches on loose papers in folders. I used to use small sketchbooks that I kept in my back pocket, but I lost one midway through the season and it traumatized me ever since. As a result, my tote that I travel with weighs about 44 pounds and is all just paper.
