Milan Menswear Fall 2011 - Gucci
For Fall 2011 creative director Frida Giannini Stayed true to the Gucci brand and what it stands for, working with rich materials such as crocodile skins and Mongolian lamb and keeping the signature Equestrian details and the incredible crafted bags (which i found to be a bit too feminine this time around) as its main focus.... some will call it vanity while others will afford to buy it...
Her form-fitted sharp suits (my favorite) offered single or double breasted jackets with peaked lapels and trousers with a leg shaped that got slightly flared at the bottom. The overcoats were long, double breasted with 70's inspired lapels and were paired with long chunky scarves creating a voluminous look inspired by the likes of Rod Stewart and Mick Jagger. The color palate offered shades of browns and powdery pinks with shots of intense purples and blues.
