Runway Spotlight: Gucci

Canon Fashion Week | Milan


Spotlighting a favorite from SpringSummer 2013:


Happiness seemed to reign in the House of Gucci. Debuting a collection that was anchored by a plethora of hues, Frida Giannini took the brand on the opposite direction of Spring|Summer 2012. Fun, fresh & flamboyant. Along with its dictatorship of color, the collection was a parade of playful sleeves: bell, puff, ruffled & fitted.

The matching necklaces & earrings were decadent. Flirtatious keyhole necklines broke up the more conservative pieces. To hinder the collection from becoming monotonous, prints of the same corresponding color bloomed in between. There was an air of elegance, a strike of retrospective: tunics, column dresses & buttoned jackets. Loose-fitting & visually fragrant.

Like a handful of children’s lollipops, the collection is quite tasteful- all wrapped in pretty packaging. | Giuseppe
