MFW: Gucci Autumn/Winter 2011

Celebrating Gucci’s 90th Anniversary, head designer Frida Giannini returned to the 70’s for her inspiration, citing a young Anjelica Huston as her muse for the collection. With floppy feathered fedora hats, tweed flares and pussy-bow shirts, it was apparent that Frida had given typified 70’s ensembles a glamorous Gucci makeover, adding feathers, fur and elegance. The colour palette reflected this with rich deep green, burgundy and burnt orange.

Frida piled brown fur on the shoulders of fitted streamline coats and jackets, while many of the outfits were layered up - sheer shirts were worn under dresses and scarfs, sweaters and necklaces all neatly added in to warm winter outfits. The show also presented several red carpet-worthy gowns, using sheer fabric and colourful voluminous floral appliqué to sex up the otherwise dated 70's silhouettes. As per any Gucci collection, no matter what the thematic inspiration, it had the typical hallmarks of Gucci - a refined sophistication with a simple yet perfected idea behind it all.

Frida created warm, lady-like silhouettes, presenting a cohesive collection that both seduced and enticed. It went all out in colour, shape and texture - a full smack of luxury which is exactly what the design house needs to celebrate it’s 90th anniversary with grandeur and applause.
