My Cubbies may have lost to the Dodgers yesterday (8 to 5) but Frida Giannini seems to hit a home run every time she’s up to bat. This time it’s her Gucci Spring 2015 early 70’s inspired sports wear collection mixed with tinges of rock n’roll glam. As Style.com put it, ” It looked like the love child of Jimi Hendrix and Ali MacGraw—glam with a touch of the good girl.”
It’s hard to select standout pieces from a collection that was bursting with them. In fact, the collection was jam-packed with one impressive look after another. The lush cognac suede trench coat/dress is a must have as well as it’s counter part – the suede cropped sailor pants worn with a fiery lace up print blouse. The antique Japanese silk ensembles were not only gorgeous, but lent the collection your more traditional spring colors. Who knew rusts, cognacs and British racing car green, colors typically associated with fall, could look so apropos for spring.
Speaking of green, the glove-leather shirtdress inset with broderie anglaise was fantastic, especially paired with the green snake skin and claret strapped sandals. Sweet and chic. For a quick 360, Giannini gave us gold bullion embroidered bandleader jackets paired with cropped, full leg and cuffed denim, wild printed silk blouses and snake skin boots. Rock ‘n Roll glam at its best.
To round out this ridiculously wearable and exceptional collection Frida abstained from her coveted red carpet gowns, opting for cocktail dresses in chinoiserie print silks trimmed with crystals.
And if it wasn’t enough that she has the fashion world clamoring for her to-the-knee and ankle ‘Bit’ boots this fall, come spring we are going to go just as bonkers for her suede boots — both to the knee and ankle!
