Gucci is known for its luxurious and sensual silhouettes in bold colors.
I remember its oversized ruffled dresses adorning magazine covers and starlets last season. It just continued a theme of assertive colors and shapes.
So I was really intrigued by the most recent Gucci collection shown at Milan Fashion Week. Frida Giannini undoubtedly had inspiration from the 1960s with dropped waists, embellished mini dresses, and sleek double breasted coats. But the colors themselves were also more subtle and muted. Shades of blush, mint, blue, and yellow filled the runway, but in more neutral shades. I was especially fascinated because the collection seemed more casual. Can something luxurious be casual as well? The use of sequin, sharp shapes, and touches of leather definitely indicate that this is possible.
Here are a few favorites from the collection (I am completely in love with the wool coats – so swinging and cool!):
Luckily there are also affordable alternatives for those of us who may want a piece with Gucci styling, but at a less heave inducing price.
Doesn’t this coat have the coolest sleeves?
