Gucci Fall 2010: Sophisticated Seventies Glamour

Gucci's creative director Frida Giannini has used the seventies as inspiration for many collections, for men and women alike. Weather the inspiration was Tina Chow, Anita Pallenberg, Mick Jagger, or John Travolta, the collections have always been young and frivolous. Not much has changed for Fall 2010, but the sophistocation and refinement of these clothes easily outdoes anything Giannini has designed in the past few years. True to the history of Gucci, Frida brought back the classic turtleneck, loafers, and slim suits that put the brand on the menswear map in the seventies. These basic refined pieces created the backbone of the collection, and scarves, sweaters, jackets, bags in luxuriously fabrics and colours spiced up the collection, creating a smart and mature feel, without being stuffy. Navy, brown, ivory and gray offered as alternates to the traditional black when paired with a bold camel hair coat or crocodile jacket. Frida Giannini gave us exactly what we want from a fashion show, a coherent mix of wearable clothing mixed with fantasy pieces to create a distinctive look. See some of my favourite looks from the collection after the jump!
