Gucci Fall 2011


Color, thy name is Gucci. That seemed to be the mantra for the 1970s collection Frida Giannini presented on Wednesday–during the iconic Florentine brand’s 90th anniversary year no less. While the Gucci woman continues to be sleek and subtle during the day–the coats were sumptuous, the tailored pantsuits gorgeous, all in a mix of black and gray hues infused with deep burgundy, winter orange and forest green–at night she explodes in a rainbow of tasteful color. Fedoras were aplenty (an ode to Florence Welch perhaps?), adding to the allure of not just the military jackets and beautiful skirts, but the sexy, billowing evening gowns as well. Made from sheer material and clearly meant to be worn with a pair of killer legs, they were paired with slashed tops and arms and shoulders left bare. Lemon yellow, deep red and light green may not exactly scream “winter,” but they’re for the Gucci woman who cares little about the harsh cold.
