MILAN…Gucci has become nothing but commercial in the past few seasons under Frida Giannini, a fact which may frustrate some of the fashion press, but the label continues to present on-trend, wearable and well made clothing appropriate for juniors. The slim silhouette seen on many runways for a few years now was present again for F/W 09 at Gucci, with the slick, shiny leg at the forefront. Acheived through leggings or very tall leather boots, this proportion may not be new, but is still popular with the market. Add in some strong shoulders, sparkle and striped prints and an easy, wearable collection emerges. Look to Gucci as an appropriate collection of trends that will be around for at least one more season.
