Tom Ford? Whatever. Under the direction of Frida Giannini (yay! a woman!), Gucci has, frankly, never looked better. Seemingly classic, lady-like, and traditional the collection is, in fact, fairly radical: No pastel colors or flowing caftans here. Yeah, we like to rail against expensive shit, and we'll keep doing it. [Oh yes. We will. -Ed.] But with a sleek black, white, red, and yellow palette — occasionally accented with green and accessorized with driving gloves (how we love to drive!) — the looks in this collection are kinda beautiful and bad-ass at the same time. For these clothes, we would gladly misbehave. If they were affordable that is. More images, after the jump.
I'm SO happy someone else is saying this! Frida Giannini is absolutely brilliant and her first collection for Gucci was a total delight. Nice to see that she just keeps getting better. I always thought Ford was a joke - much more a stylist than a designer - but Giannini has done a wonderful job of taking the design heritage of Gucci and making it modern and beautiful.
