Gucci displays a monochromatic collection with profuse glamour. Italian designer Frida Giannini created a collection that was completely neutral and possessed all the essential Gucci elements from the 1990’s giving a simple nod to former Gucci designer, Tom Ford. However, this collection was all about Giannini and the essential pieces that give her adoration from the Gucci customer. This collection was almost like an actual peek into her wardrobe with indispensable pieces that would be hanging in her closet. She offered the incredibly tailored Frida pants that have become vital pieces from season to season. The tailoring had immense influence from menswear and according to Giannini it was borrowed from the boyfriend’s closet. With that in mind, there were plenty of coats that were available in wool, leather and fur. The fox furs permeated luxury into the collection and corresponded with the gold hardware recognizable on the belts and bags. The Gucci look this season was about the heritage and luxury of Gucci and the subtle elegance of monochrome.
The show was held in Milan with soundtrack from Massive Attack, Portishead and Caribou Odessa. Model Freja Beha Erichsen opened the show in a cream colored dress with matching tights and heels. The monochromatic sensation manifested right through the entire collection but never entered the territory of boredom. There was the luxurious infusion leather applied to various pieces, patchwork ostrich jacket, a fox fur coat and a pair of snakeskin boots. The Giannini pants were startling and tailored to perfection narrowly cut and opened just perfectly to fit over the shoe. The pants worked great with everything like the fox fur lined vest, an a-line suede coat and the peek-a-boo cut silk blouses.
The most admired piece in the collection was the marvelous Frida pants that were tailored to perfection. The finale eveningwear that came in black and tan with Chantilly lace were razor cut in a python pattern decorated with sequins and ostrich feathers were astonishing and adored by stylist and buyers. The minx tinted fox fur jacket, a sable jacket with an interweave suede and a camel coat with knitted mink lining were extremely gorgeous.
Frida Giannini showed us that there is no need to be trendy or find the next best thing in fashion in order to be successful. All that is needed were the essential Gucci pieces that the customer loves injected with a dose of luxury. The Gucci woman may not be over the top with displaying trends or vibrant colors but she is definitely not afraid to show off her love for luxury with nice fox fur bolero and gold Gucci belt. –Brent Billiman, Milan, Italy.
