Today is the official start of Milan Fashion Week. As always I am about to begin running around like a headless chicken (what else is new lol), and this season as well I am filming for a very exciting project which you will all be able to watch not too long after the official end of fashion week 🙂 So yeah, filming, running around from one place to another to make our appointments *navigating cobblestoned roads in heels to add to the torture of course haha*, taking photographs of interesting bags that show goers are carrying… Oh and in between all that, working on show schedules and presentations because all invitations have been sent to a different address as I am currently staying in a beautiful new apartment (thanks Bryanboy for the wonderful introduction to our “landlord” :D)– so yeah I pretty much just gave myself an even harder time because of the daily detour to pick up mail. But it’s all good 🙂
Anyway enough about me, me, and me (blah blah blah). Although it was not Gucci that “opened” fashion week this season, Gucci without a doubt made a big impact.
For Spring 2014, Creative Director Frida Giannini took “activewear essentials as a starting point” in her collection, so you see maxi t-shirts in mesh, elastic trims that were patterned and mixed together with lurex, jacquard, laminations, and leather inlays. All very luxe!
The strappy “bikinis” beneath the maxi shirts were sexy!
The classic bamboo bags (the small shoulder bag as well as the shopper) were draped with fringes and were so beautiful on the runway as they danced to the movements of the models. And then there were the maxi clutch bags in exotic leathers which were very luxurious.
It was a very technical yet fluid and feminine collection that will surely find its way on women during the holidays next year. I was left very impressed!
