Frida Giannini has found inspiration in everything from colorful Navajo prints to glam rock. For F/W 10, she returned Gucci back to what it has had the most success in portraying — a groovy globetrotter from the 70s. Fine-gauge merino wool turtlenecks worn under slim blazers comprised the key look of the season, often styled with thin-wale corduroy pants that had a buttery velvet look. Cropped duffel coats in camelhair were worn with white jeans, bringing a light, fresh feel to the dead of winter. The statement-making sweaters worn on many models had a subtle Folkloric or Navajo motif, a nice alternative to the plethora of Fair Isle patterns seen this season. Finally, how could Gucci forget formal? The versions for F/W 10 included richly-colored astrakhan jackets, silk evening scarves and topcoats trimmed in beaver.
