Gucci Exotica

Milan…Gucci

Isn’t it ironic that the criticism leveled at Frida Giannini season after season is because her clothing is TOO wearable? While it is true that if there was a prize for most-knocked-off it would go to her collection but isn’t that a compliment of sorts? Gucci for S/S 09 entitled “Gucci Exotica,”incorporated all of the usual elements we have come to expect from Giannini, variations on the masculine-edged pant suit and fedora combination plus leather jackets. Last season’s rich bohemian looks were eschewed in favor of more tailored safari looks complete with gold hardware and a series of caftans, both short and long in the diaphanous fabrics that are fast becoming this season’s signature. All this and of course a new “it” bag, the “New Jackie” Like it or not, this is a collection positioned to sell.
