Creating a collection that was composed and rather under toned in essence, Frida Giannini pulled back the typical Gucci iconic double G logos to skin pieces cuts in a rebellious sixties London mod-soft-rock peace of mind for A/W 2014 in Milan this season. Inspired by the portraiture art of artist Kris Knight, the reborn of monochromatic mod that blended almost determinedly retro, and was such a daring foundation such soft natured-inspired color palette of Giannini’s Gucci’s collection. But it does not stop there – a blend of a modern riotous musician with the prominent Greek inspired fishermen’s hat accessory, once fashionably adopted by both inspiring Bob Dylan and John Lennon, was a unique twist even for Gucci.

Here and now, Gucci’s catwalk is streamed with Giannini’s fantasies through skinny, speedy boys in shades of pastel toned grays turtlenecks and mod-tailored, shrunken peacoats in navy and elegant black. The punk loomed through the punk-tight leather trousers and tight shirts in elegant black leather as well as the black compacted rock blousons that bloomed towards the end of the spectacle. Giannini’s daring choices of color palettes were exclusively played around a blushy off-pink, chalky peach, camel, pastel blues and soft greens shades that were unexpectedly vibrant in a winter collection mod inspired, against all the dark and dusty shades of grey, navy and black as the retro juxtaposing shades. Amongst of all that, Giannini was still able to ensemble an LA-gothic subtlety in black sweatshirts with zipped-removable sleeves and a European-esque velvet suit with polo –necks that were masculinated fitting on the boys. Apart from the audacious color palette, leather was the energized diamond of the collection that was fitting to rosy pink blazers, pale blue military tailored shirts and brown faux-leathered biker jackets. 

This clean, chic, polished with a touch of edge collection was an out-of-the-ordinary creation by Giannini for Gucci, yet however “success” does not cut it for the amount of victoriously positive critiques by the fashion masters. There were definitely visible British roots that seemingly could pass for Burberry-esquey, yet with such a subdued, muted toned collection for the males, Giannini was still able to create a new “It” style for the boys for this upcoming chilly season.  (Text Nadilla Sari Ratman)
