Enjoy Chic & Glamour with Gucci! (Gucci Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 Collection)

Gucci is Gucci. It would be silly to expect a simple and boring collection from such an outstanding brand. Their Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 range was as chic and glamorous as Gucci collection can ever be.

The colors were amazing. Deep, rich and totally luxurious – those reds, purples, greys, navies and plenty of other interesting hues looked fantastic on designs clearly inspired by the 70s. Despite the fact the idea to revive that fashion period isn’t new and has come to us from the last, Spring/ Summer 2011, season Gucci transformed it into something new and more sophisticated.

Evening floor-sweeping dresses with sheer skirts were perfect and I would say red-carpet-ready. Teamed up with scarves and other accessories in matching tones these Gucci creations are definitely among my favorites from Milan Fashion Week.

For daily wear Frida Giannini offered the customers a lot of wearable and still sumptuous items, including wide-leg trousers, classic belted jackets, very feminine blouses with intricate neck details, as well as fur coats, and wide-brimmed hats.

Full Skirts – The Feminine Side of Spring

2011 spring does its best to conquer the hearts with amazing signs of feminine grace. As the 70’s are back to remind us of the delicate textures and fluid lines we loved so much, the full skirt is also back to compliment the female silhouette.

Long, midi or short, fluid, delicate or ruffled the full skirt is out to prowl the streets this spring. We find this lovely and elegant fashion piece in the collections of all the significant designers.

Salvatore Ferragamo proposed the long oversized ruffles with elegant embroidered fabric and neutral colors. Proenza Schouler and Vena Cava introduced delicate lines, mid length overlaid fabric and contrastive colors while Marc Jacobs brought back the Lolita air.

The full skirt is all about underlining the beauty of the female shape. The layers of fabric make the legs look longer while the narrow waistline delicately underlines the torso.

The beauty of this item is that it fits perfectly high heels, platforms but also comfortable flats. You can wear it at the office, on a shopping spree or on a date.

Versatile and most of all delightfully girly, the full skirt is something ladies should not miss this upcoming season.
