Gucci Men’s Collection Fall/Winter 2011
January 17, 2011 3 Comments
Day 3 of Milan Fashion Week and it’s obvious that many of the Italian designers want us looking like 70s rock stars for next fall/winter. Frida Giannini’s collection is no exception. Shaggy haired models strutted the Gucci monogrammed catwalk in oversized Gucci aviators, at one of Milan Fashion Week’s most anticipated shows.
Full of confidence and swagger, models strutted in powdered rose madder dress shirts, reptilian and ostrich double-breasted sports jackets, mohair sweaters, skinny belts, and teal, taupe, and brown suits. Gucci’s pants were looking awfully long and flared out at the bottom. Not sure if we’re ready for the bootleg cut quite yet. Horizontal stripes were also featured prominently, as with Dolce & Gabbana. The men’s bags and male clutches looked great, but it’s Gucci – they always look great. Wait, male clutches?
Carry over trends from last fall/winter included oversized scarves and pocket squares. The Italian designers have me wondering if there will be an unprecedented economic boom this year. They must be banking on one because fur is shaping up to be an essential of FW11 and I for one, can’t afford it. The label is about luxury and Gucci stays true to that. This is is a good thing. Happy 90th Gucci.
