The Gucci Spring 2012 press preview was one of my favourites.

Inspired by the early twentieth century art-deco era, Frida Giannini showcased glamour, Milanese style, so to see the collection up close was an honour.

I got to see all those gorgeous flapper-esque drop-waist dresses which we’ve seen on Zoe Saldana and Camilla Belle up close.

The dresses are very heavy, which is not really surprising considering the gold chains, bugle beads and sequin details that make up these stunning dresses.

Alongside the dresses were the heavenly accessories.

I saw the black and gold t-bar ankle-strap sandals which have become very popular with celebs like Salma Hayek and Charlize Theron. Seeing the gold ankle-strap sandals up close, I discovered that the detail was in fact a panther’s head.

Crocodile clutches, shoulder bags with gold chains, clutches with gold tassels, belts with gold buckles, snake-print shoes and jewelry were all on display.

You can see more close-ups of the collection below.
