Gucci Spring 2015
Yes, it was the ’70s again. If the runways in New York, London, and Milan are any indication, you’ll be wearing this era come spring. Time to purchase a pair of bell bottoms, darlings. Gucci was at the height of its fame as a luxury house in the ’70s, so the brand was right at home with this season’s hautest trends. Thus, Frida Giannini made sure this collection paid tribute to the brand’s heritage. To wit: The first looks out included a short white jacket with white culotte shorts, and a suede button down dress tied at the waist, both of which were paired with a purse featuring a classic red and green Gucci striped strap.
There was denim, gingham, suede, and Sergeant Pepper jackets all in the earthy tones of the era, like chestnut brown, maroon, mustard yellow, and so on. A fully suede dress in forest green was barely held together by a brown woven leather belt revealing plenty of leg and neckline, true to the brand’s penchant for sex appeal. The low slung wide-leg cropped denim jeans in the vein of sailor’s pants should be particularly covetable, as well as the fabulous furs and floral, patchwork-like pattern that came on several easy dresses and pajama-style pants. But the sequined evening numbers in Asian florals and birds shined the most, and were another tribute to the brand’s heritage. Gucci opened its first stores in Tokyo and Hong Kong in the ’70s: Talk about being ahead of the curve.
