LUXE BE A LADY
New York: After a 70s-inspired Spring collection featuring monochromatic ensembles in eye-popping colors, Frida Giannini toned it down for Pre-Fall. She focused on classic, ladylike items with a hint of a 40s feel, made from the most luxurious materials. Furs of a variety of types were used for sumptuous outerwear pieces or for contrast collars, and a tailored skirt suit was made from ostrich skin. Hourglass silhouettes abounded, with nearly every look having been cinched in at the waist with a wide leather belt. The best aspect of the collection was that, though the clothes were unquestionably high-end, they were also very real. The elegant pencil skirts, sheaths, and sweaters will slip easily into the Gucci customer’s wardrobe. Even the statement pieces were created in classic shapes, make them approachable and all the more desirable.–Joanna Manganaro
