There’s no denying that Gucci’s got the glam factor. And for their 90th anniversary show, they pulled out all the stops. The fall collection evoked the style of the seventies (think pussy bow blouses, velvet blazers and fedoras), which, when mixed with Gucci’s high luxe style, made for a great show. The clothes riffed on the ones that Frida Giannini sent out for spring, with a similar color palette and the same opulence factor, but these had an air of fall all their own.
Nearly every model that walked down the runway was sporting fur of some kind, dyed deep jewel tones and looking extravagant. The patent leather wasn’t far behind, turning up in tight skirts and dresses that clung to the models.
Giannini loves to mix colors, and it definitely showed here. Each outfit had a color scheme all its own, with hues that many wouldn’t normally pair together. But they worked fabulously – from the furs to the python to the sweaters. The show did give way to black and white for a brief section, but returned to deep florals for the show-stoppers at the end.
Those dresses were another story, floaty confections that went to the floor but made up for it with deep slits and high cuts up the leg. They kept the rich tone of the rest of the show going, lending a breath of air in between the furs. Clearly, Gucci knows how to celebrate in style.Tags: color, dresses, fashion week, Frida Giannini, fur, Gucci
