Gucci opened Milan Fashion Week with a fall 2011 showing which surprisingly stayed in the same vein as pre-fall’s glam seventies collection. Adding to that base, Gucci designer Frida Giannini took on jewel toned hues of turquoise and fuchsia with fur accents and sheer floor-length gowns. Models strutted down the runway with oversize hats, dark shades, plum lips and tailored jackets for one sexy and strong outing.
The collection, designed by Frida Giannini, Gucci's creative director, focused on a 1940's-meets-1970's silhouette, inspired by Faye Dunaway in 'The Eyes of Laura Mars', and the style of the flame-haired, British singer, Florence Welch, of Florence & The Machine.
