Gucci Ready To Wear Fall Winter 2011 Milan

Frida Giannini debuted her first ready-to-wear clothing collection for Gucci in spring/summer 2005. Today and right from the very first look on the runway, model Natasha Poly wearing a striking teal and grey silhouette, it was clear that Frida Giannini’s newly found, winning stride at Gucci continues. The spring/summer 2011 collection proposed striking colours, the Gucci woman was strong and sexy and this has blended seamlessly into sumptuous propositions for autumn/winter.

Culottes or wide trousers that slinked from the hip came in a luxurious wool mix or tweed and followed the colour palette that was a combination of shades so rich they were practically pigments: plum, rust, yellow, berry and plenty of that glamourous teal. Everything in this collection was beautifully co-ordinated – the over-the-knee platform boots, bags, wide-rimmed Fedora's, jackets and knitwear - meaning that the Gucci woman can literally pick and mix pieces from the entire collection to fill next winters wardrobe. It was glamour to go but everything looked so comfortable too. With this collection women need not sacrifice practicality or warmth for sheer dazzle. This is surely one of the holy grails in modern fashion.

Giannini showed off Gucci’s DNA which is leather and accessories notably the Jackie O bag that’s been updated with an adjustable strap and presented on the catwalk for the first time today. Python, fox, mink, goat and mohair were key materials with the clothes as was chiffon. Fifteen floor sweeping chiffon evening dresses wafted down the runway with large, feminine neck bows featuring on each. Some came with hand painted organza flowers adorning shoulders. Lips and nails were a deep red throughout.

Overall the look evoked the 70s, that foxy, handsome woman of the past was wonderfully revived and, of course, Frida being a Roman and a strong woman herself, everything oozed with tangible sexuality. With this collection, covering up is the new stripping off. 

Soundtrack: Anna Calvi, Blackout.
