From the opening look upon the runway, we come face-to-face with strong shaped printing upon short prim-esque jackets. While the mix of luxe materials such as velvet, sheer tulle, wool and leather, complete the look, and denote the hedonistic glamour that the Gucci woman radiates. From the intricate tailoring, to the black and gold mirroring, this show would definitely leave you in awe of the wonder woman, Frida Giannini.
For the spring/summer collection, Giannini has made it obvious what our investment pieces are. The Gucci jacket. Nearly every look is made complete with one. Whether this jacket comes with print, has a military approach or an acute boyfriend style; Giannini has made it clear to us that next season, it’s all about the jacket you’re wearing.
For me though, it was not until the end of the show that the heart wrenching moment of sheer delight was exposed. Drop waisted, art-deco style dresses, emulating that distinguished look of the twenties poured down the runway in beautiful shades of black and mirrored gold. The highly meticulous embellishment upon these dresses is incomparable, and the word exquisite really was an understatement. From feathers to fringing, one shoulder to strapless, Giannini really did bestow every single style of dress in the most beautiful, and eloquent of ways.
