Gucci Autumn / Winter Collection 2012
Frida Giannini's dark and decadent designs
Another collection that takes you back to the decadent Gothic medieval times is Gucci autumn/winter 2012. Mysterious and dark themed coloured velvets symphonised with a colour palette of plum, bottle green and espresso played on a dark seductive and romantic theme created by the great Frida Giannini.
Capes played a central role in the confident collection and the long evening dresses could have been directly from ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. Off-the-shoulder dresses, string-tie blouses, feather skirts, flat-heeled riding- style boots, military-inspired coats and brocade-patterned trousers dressed the modern androgynous heroines.
