Gucci Plays Monochromatic Favorites
Amidst all the talk of fall 2012′s dark neutrals and spring 2013 prints, it seems designer Gucci designer Frida Giannini strategically played the contrarian—and still came out on top!
Gucci’s Spring 2013—recently revealed at Milan Fashion Week—is all about solids. We’re talking a collection dominated by solid bright hues like fuchsia, yellow, coral, cobalt blue, teal and kelly green. And what a rainbow it was, adorning chic pantsuits, highly ruffled dresses and caftans. The structures and cuts were reminiscent of a glamorous summer night in the 70′s without being completely tied to the era, which was accentuated by the layering of bold, chunky jewelry.
Oh sure, there were a few pieces featuring prints, including snow leopard and reptile patterns, but the styling was so in-line with the rest of the monochromatic crew, that they seemed to fall right in line with the rest. And we’d be remiss if we didn’t show you this most elegant of long black frocks… *sigh.
