Gucci was at it’s peak of Italian luxury today. From the rich, jewel-tones, to the well-crafted leathers, the sky-high stilettos and the red-lipped beauties, Gucci has inspired me more than I think the house has ever. It was absolutely beautiful. The menswear inspired, but feminine silhouettes were absolutely fabulous and necessary for another 1970s inspired collection; one we enjoyed without questioning taste level.
What can we say about the trousers? We love what initially came out on Raquel, but then the crotch became a serious sartorial issue. They front area near the crotch seemed fairly off, but the transition to the harem eventually made sense of the situation. The beading and embellishing the looks made the ravishing, but interesting. Giannini’s use of fringe had me wondering on Freja’s green dress had me wondering if it was in fact fur, which may even turn out to be feathers for all I can tell.
How sensational was the casting for this show? Absolutely brilliant, and I can say I love Giannini’s girls: Raquel, Joan, Freja, Natasha, Karmen, Anja, Snejana, Chanel, Jac, and even Abbey Lee. While these power-girls are certainly not the only incredible aspect of the show, their presence certainly did not hurt. Take a look from the backstage photos from Style.com. Each model is tantalizing in her own way.
