Autumn is on its way and I am officially ready to begin transitioning my wardrobe.
There are many designer shows that influence me when I transition my wardrobe in between seasons, and for AW I am taking much inspiration from the 60’s edge at Gucci. Often I study shows during fashion week and I see pieces I like across the board, but it is only a few shows that will truly inspire me in their entirety, and Gucci was one of those this season.
This isn’t the first time that I am writing about the Gucci AW14-15 show, and the closer Autumn gets the more I find myself dreaming of all things Gucci…and how I can get the look at a more affordable price tag.
I find the whole 60’s vibe so endearing.
I desperately want to be a 60’s Gucci girl, with my A line leather mini skirts , knee high boots and fluffy [faux] shearling coats, and yes I want all of these in every colour.
I’m currently on the lookout for AW pieces that can give me that Gucci girl edge, so stay tuned for a ‘get the look’ Gucci post soon!
Frida Giannini, Creative Director of Gucci, has indicated a move away from the brand’s traditional black attire in their newest collection, saying that she wanted ‘a new palette and clean lines’ from their most recent AW14 collection.With a more optimistic, youthful edge, we can clearly see that this has been achieved in the sugary sweet pastel shades and shorter A-Line skirts and dresses that was showcased earlier on today in Milan. With soft pastel hues we saw fluffy shearling coats, double breasted trench coats and adorable, high-waisted A-line skirts in an array of metallic and matte pastel shades. Contrasted against this were darker, more autumnal, shades of olive green and deep red, as well as the obvious appearance of snakeskin, in youthful shades of yellow and blue, printed on both silk blouses as well as knee high, patent leather boots. Despite feminine colours, youthful prints and soft, luxurious textures, this collection aims to represent the modern Gucci woman, albeit with a 60’s edge.
