MFW: Gucci Goes Pastel for F/W 2014
Posted Monday February 24, 2014 10:17 AM GMT
Fashion week can be quite the spectacle, with designers putting out clothes that many wonder, “Where would I ever wear that?” Yet, Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini threw a curve ball into the mix, offering up a completely wearable (yet of course luxurious) fall 2014 lineup.
“I felt the need to materialize the essence of Gucci,” she wrote in her show notes. That essence relates to a woman she believes, “dresses to please herself rather than others.”
The range was fittingly heavy in fine Italian leather, with the fabric appearing on everything from jackets and dresses to shoes and bags. Pastels ruled the color palette, with soft pinks, beiges, blues and greens dominating, only to be matched by fierce whites and mustard yellows.
Silhouettes were kept clean and feminine in their nature — perfect for a glamorous Gucci gal. Notably missing were floor-length evening wear options, as Giannini instead opted to debut shorter frocks featuring distinct elements of detail on the bodice.
Every model sported lust-worthy knee-high boots, wind-swept hair and a soft makeup look with emphasis on a sultry eye. Everything about the collection was refined yet realistic, solidifying Gucci as a highlight of fashion weeks around the world.
