Milan Fashion Week Highlight: Gucci

I can not believe it is already Milan fashion week! On the 19th of February, the first day of this impeccably orchestrated exhibition of fashion, Gucci showed its fall-winter 2015 collection. As soon as the first model hit the runway, I immediately understood what Frida Giannini was trying to say. The ensembles this season harkened back to Gucci’s prime, the 60s. This era was bursting with jet-set glamour and Gucci devotees like Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, and Jackie O. Even though this collection was fall-winter it felt very mixed seasonal in the pops of fresh colors and clean, short cuts. Fluffy fur coats, mod shapes, high collars, Twiggy-like eye makeup, and a retro color scheme gave this collection an uber-luxe yet classic 60s feel. I also loved Giannini’s creations because they were a break away from the very severe and ultra-sexy Gucci woman of late. But, this being Gucci, a little bit of sex appeal was built into the DNA with the animal prints and bare limbs. The slim suits and leather minis were absolutely flawless and effortless. The outerwear was sexy in a modest way because there is something so seductive about mounds of lush fur covering a woman’s body. If you show a hint of leg, these coats will keep others wondering what your hiding underneath. The accessories for this collection were also spot-on. For footwear, Giannini reinterpreted the classic Gucci moccasin with Horsebit as a sexy go-go boot. The hobo bags gave this collection more ease and the sumptuous leathers were just a bonus and the thick sunglasses the models wore echoed the preppy vibe of the clothes. For me, Gucci’s collection is definitely a favorite of the season.
