JET SET OPULENCE
Milan: Gucci is an Italian national treasure, an iconic label that has prevailed for 90 years. Like many designers at Milan Fashion Week, Frida Giannini focused on the opulence and allure of the 1970s, the brand’s heyday. With a strong-shouldered suit as the foundation of the collection, along with touchable fabrics and a Rod Stewart soundtrack, the stage was set for a collection that evoked the house’s glam-luxe legacy.
