It’s hard to be motivated to look at Spring Fashion unless, of course you are sitting on a pool deck in, say Miami. With Milan Fashion Week just getting warmed up, Gucci always does such a smashing job of setting the tone for what the Luxe crowd will be wearing when the weather warms up in places, say like Europe or New York. This season, a marvelously younger looking Frida Giannini decided that we will all be terribly athletic in a dropped waist, silk kimono kind of way. While the satin shone like so many lovely scarves, the colors gave the impression more of early fall with rusts, plums, and some ripe raspberries firmly set in black lacquer. When one thinks of the house of Gucci, one automatically thinks chic, sleek, and above critique. For Spring, Giannini is directing fashion in not only in a more casual, almost Cruise, direction (albeit the fabrics and materials are of the most luxurious) with mesh see-through sport sleeve tops revealing equally transparent bras and basketball striped Capri pants. The collection was remarkably similar to some of the recent “made for America” MaxAzria BCBG Spring 2014 Show. It remains to be seen, however, just which dinner parties or gala events these pieces will be worn to.
