Gucci Resort 2012: Thanks, I’ll Take Once of Each
When it comes to high fashion labels and Resort collections, designers either get it or they don’t. There’s a fine line between being too uptight (see Chanel) or just too casual (see Just Cavalli). Celebrating it’s 90th anniversary this year, Gucci‘s Frida Giannini nailed it! According to WWD, Giannini created a “resort collection that paid homage to the chic and glamorous jet set that has contributed to the company’s success over the years.” It’s easy to say that I like everything about the collection. The simple palette consisted of sheer lightweight fl0wly feminine pieces in white, black, white, soft yellow, deep gold paired with accessories in animal prints such as snakeskin and zebra. I think what made Gucci this time around was Giannini’s ability to balance simplicity and chicness with subtle coolness.
