To begin Milan Fashion Week Fall Winter 2012 Frida Giannini for Gucci showed her dark but romantic side for the legendary brand with a collection inspired by the resurgent Art Nouveau revival of the 1970s.

Giannini played on transparency by using lots of velvet which made up appliqué flowers on translucent chiffon and lace blouses. She showed us silk dresses featuring barely there floral prints of fading tulips or pale yellow flowers that fanned stiffly. When worn with simple heeled sandals these frocks gave the collection an romantic side in a dark palette ranging from black,purple, burgundy, navy, forest green, dark olive and brown. Furthermore, dresses and skirts were smothered in feathers that gave off an inky glow. All dark glamour.  The closing dresses appeared one after another:  jewelled chiffon evening gowns - their embellishments in dark green or purple encrusting the entire bodice or simply gathering at the shoulder and hip while leaving the back bare. 

The models’ hair - pulled back in two twisted strands  - gave the collection an innocent touch, creating nymph-like atmosphere despite the luxurious androgyny on display.

Flat heeled riding boots, wide-cut cropped jackets with gold buttons and softly belted velvet smoking jackets, combined with riding trousers that flounced over each thigh and velvet suits with harem inspired pants were signature seperates for this collection.
