Luxe 70s tailoring at Gucci Pre-Fall 2015
Italian brand Gucci revisited the 1970s this season with a luxurious, retro-themed collection.
For Pre-Fall 2015 Frida Giannini decided to go hunting around in the ‘bourgeois soul’ of the GUCCI woman.
The journey included plenty of fur, including a woven goat jacket, shearling outerwear with Mongolian lamb on the neckline, and fox-fur patchwork jackets.
Menswear-inspired tailoring in tweed, herringbone and geometric jacquards was worn with wide-leg culotte pants, knee-length skirts, and silk blouses with waistlines pulled in and sleeves puffed out.
The 70s-inspired looks continued with suede and leather pieces (some with crystal embellishment), and mohair, merino and alpaca knitwear.
The color story (shown off in solid colors and prints) was focused on brick red, burgundy, apricot, and dark orange, along with pink, blue, and ivy green. These were complemented by charcoal, black, and camel neutrals.
The black and deep blue denim came with added sparkle from the embroidery. The key footwear looks were the python stilettos which were also reimagined as flat point-toe brogues.
