Gucci Fall / Winter 2012




Frida Giannini described the Gucci 2012 Fall/Winter collection as "opulent romanticism". I would describe it as a parade of what I imagine Dracula's bride would be wearing in her fashionable life around Transylvania. It was very sexy, vampy vampire complete with dark lips and long wavy hair. There was even a floor length cape. I absolutely loved it. It was dark and moody with a hint of bordeaux. There were a few pieces that I really stood out for me. All the looks with the green feathers... perfect. They looked like they were plucked from some exotic, nearly extinct, super chic peacock. Gucci also gave a dark floral print, sheer tops , and velvet which is definitely trending this season. My favourite look was the enormous fur coat with the jodhpurs and flat riding boots in black (adding to the list...). It looks like she probably hunted down the animal herself, killed it with her style, and now she's wearing the coat as her trophy.
