Gucci Spring 2011 RTW


With bows, flower appliques, and sheer numbers with slits-up-to-there galore, Frida Giannini's fall 2011 show for Gucci ended up looking eerily similar to Marc Jacobs for spring 2011 at times.  Giannini's looks were good enough, in fact, I think that I even prefer her versions of the flowing maxi dresses; but unfortunately, Gucci's collection seems to be a beat too late.  1970s influence littered the runways last season from Milan to Paris, and it's a trend that's perfect for springtime.  However, fall's zeitgeist is looking much more sophisticated, with 1940s Hollywood glam vibes striking a cord among buyers and retailers alike.  Gianni may have achieved this with some of her furs and a few smartly tailored jackets, but for the most part she missed the mark by cutting up those looks with over-the-top boho-chic attire.
