Milan Fashion Week beautifully kicked off yesterday with Gucci’s Fall/Winter 2012-13 collection.
Again, Gucci left me speechless as the collection hinted dark romance. A lot of dark colors with also lots of jewel shades like plum, sapphire and the fabulous emerald green. I personally LOVE velvet and I’m in awe with their massive use of the fabric for this collection. There was a lot of leather and tulle as well.
As for the shoes, there was a lot of crocodiles and flat boots to remind us of the masculine trend.
I personally love how we’re going back to the true meaning of winter fashion! Some might judge it as too dark but I adore this mystical side the brand gave the models yesterday; something like a enigmatic romance.
I think the best description is the one given by Frida Giannini (creative director of the brand) herself: “This is a modern-day romanticism, a dramatic sensuality, a dark glamour, with subtle games of provocative intellect.”
Checkout these few pictures:
Finally, the models had a very natural beauty look with their hair long and slightly pulled back in the front. They had almost no makeup but a strong bordeaux lipstick.
Any thoughts about the collection?
