Gucci Spring/Summer 2014

Gucci is one of the most luxurious fashion houses in the world.  It’s one of my favorite collections to follow and since Tom Ford’s departure from the house in 2004, it was Frida Giannini who had taken the reigns and continued the legacy of the house.  She offers a sexy, feminine perspective each season.  Gucci is known as a leather goods company that transitioned into being a top equestrian gear label.

Gucci’s Spring 2014 Collection was inspired by fitness featuring mess t-shirts, triangle bras, basketball shorts, and track pants.  Giannini inspiration might have come from her summer activities of working out post-baby.  Along with these fitness inspired looks were jackets and robecoats with Japanese kimono style draping, large floral patterns on dresses, pants, and other looks and bold colors including red, orange, burgundy to compliment the black mesh.

The last time Japanese kimono inspirations were seen down a Gucci runway was ten years before under Tom Ford. That collection looked a little more inspired by sex and which showed a lot more skin and looked little more street walker than Rodeo Drive.  Giannini’s woman this season was sexy but a sporty sexy.  She takes care of herself and is an active woman engaged in exercise. Perhaps Giannini’s message is more about healthy and wellness and less on sex.
