Milan: Gucci creative director, Frida Giannini, presented a most desirable collection. She continued in the vein of the late 60s and 70s theme that was presented this last season, although here was a more relaxed look with covetable pieces that would grace any wardrobe – pieces that will be kept season after season without ever dating. The Gucci woman, as the show notes put it, ‘takes pleasure in irreverently mixing her favourite pieces’. The line up included dark denim, richly coloured soft suedes and silks, fur trimmed jackets and laser cut leather dresses laced at the neckline or sides. Boyfriend jeans cropped at calf length were relaxed and sat low at the hip. A slight uniform look prevailed with brass buttons, frogging and patch pockets. Similarly, there was a chic sexiness to the presentation with mid calf halter neck dresses and a vignette of Eastern inspired short dresses ornately studded with jewels and intricate embroideries.
