Gucci Spring 2011

The Gucci Spring 2011 presentation kicked off my Milan Fashion Week.

Frida Giannini gave us sophisticated elegance with a 70s vibe and a Mediterranean allure.

We were charmed with colour-blocking purple, green and orange for the opening part of the presentation.

Then more neutral colours were presented followed by bold black pieces and colourful evening looks.

Masculine jackets, high-waisted tulip skirts, harem pants, jumpsuits, and cocktail dresses were presented.

You sensed the exotic nature of this collection from the coloured features and the detailing on the evening dresses.

The new “Snaffle Bit Bag” with a snap-style closure was one of the key accessories along with oversized bags, sandals with python detailing and high metallic heel, caged booties, sunglasses and obi-style belts.

Tassels seemed to be everywhere. Not just the clothes, but the bags and footwear too.

Favourites: Turquoise feathered halter cocktail dress and tan leather vest with harem-style shorts

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Halle Berry, Jessica Alba, Sarah Jessica Parker, Diane Kruger, Zoe Saldana, Kerry Washington, Eva Mendes, Cameron Diaz, Charlize Theron, Rachel Weisz and Thandie Newton

    Very underwelmed. Seems like 4 different collections in one. A bit of Ysl a bit moroccan tourist-all a bit off

    A very hti and miss collection forme. I adored the blue halter feather dress, and various otherpieces, but the last dress natasha Poly wore made even her look fat. I also felt the collection was slightly messy and the colour pallette was not focused enough. I am sure though that it will look great on the redcarpet. I have prefered the last spring summer collection, but Frida is making clear progress. Also the collection seemed quite morrocan inspired to me.

    Great collection!

    The first part was amazing, very “Tom Fordish”.
    The rest was more “Frida Glam” which I’m not so fond of.

    The gold python and croc clutches were AMAZING!
