Gucci Fall 2011

My Milan Fashion Week adventure started with a bang at Gucci.

Frida Giannini presented a Gucci Fall 2011collection of luxe 70s inspired glam looks.

My eyes were set alight with gorgeous jewel toned turquoise, fuchsia, cerulean blue, sapphire, emerald, magenta and purple.

Nearly all of the looks were accented with fur and we also saw a lot of bow neck ties.

Culottes, masculine jackets, wide leg pants, fox collard jackets, chiffon blouses, midi skirts, sweaters, leather dresses and wool coats were presented.

For the evening and for the red carpet we saw many sexy sheer halter neck gowns which billowed down the runway. These looks were either accented with organza petals or paired with a petal jacket or shrug.

Key accessories included Fedoras hats accented with coloured feathers, Mary Jane heels, knee high boots, block shaded oversized sunglasses with square lines, fine jewlery and an exotic mix of bags including crocodile, lizard and ostrich.

I love that the Gucci woman is all about colour.

Favourites: Python fox collard jacket paired with a lilac blouse, purple cardi and maroon skirt plus two tone mustard and black asymmetrical dress with sheer skirt

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Kate Walsh, Demi Moore, Susan Sarandon, Leighton Meester, Lucy Liu, Kate Beckinsale and Fan Bing Bing

    Wow, what a gorgeous collection. I LOVE all the colour! The models look very sophisticated and chic.

    I would love to see someone wear your second listed favourite (the two tone mustard and black asymmetrical dress) on the red carpet, but modified with a lining for the skirt. That would be so refreshing and original.

    I am so in love with this collection. Usually I like Gucci, but don’t necessarily see it as my style – this collection, I just want to take it all home! (Well, maybe half of it.) Love the hats, love the colors – and wish there were some way I could afford that snakeskin jacket!

    I can only see half of the first picture, but I must say that Frida Giannini must hate animals so much… Too much furs…
