Boyish Romanticism from the Sixties at Gucci
One thing has always rang true with the Gucci label: the Gucci woman dresses for herself rather than for others, and with the design house’s latest collection debuting during Milan Fashion Week for fall/winter 2014-15, the significance of this still shines through.
There is an air of romantic empowerment in the Gucci woman. Here we found a number of daywear essentials inspired by sixties style icons, including many geometric lines and shapes in form-fitting construction colliding with voluminous furs. Sartorial pants were tailored at the ankle, alternating with A-line skirts and dresses.
Leather played a major role in this collection in either a head-to-toe ensemble or in a smaller detail. Metal discs lent an edge to roomy stretched wool, mohair, and angora sweaters and jackets. The luxury of course, doesn’t stop there, for Gucci gives us inside-out shearling, beaver fur, and goat hair for added decadence. There’s a maxi animalier design on silk or pony skin trenches, jackets, blouses with pants, and mini-dresses.
This collection is an array of candy colors, from cornflower, bluish pink, cognac, and traces of black. For evening wear, we love that an embroidered minidress had replaced the floor length gown. Playful and fun, yet seriously chic at Gucci.
