When asked where to find the latest fashion trend in the world, you will probably come up with some names of traditional fashion cities like Milan. The most famous designers gather here every season to display their brand new ideas and innovations. This time the Milan Fashion Week kicked off with a burst of color this season, especially with Frida Giannini’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection for Gucci. Models glided down the catwalk with gorgeous, red pedicures, accented by sky high stilettos. And despite the seriousness of the slicked back hair, the collection this season was nothing but a bold display of colors. The 70′s set the scene this season as jewel toned pieces made their way down the catwalk. Knee-length skirts paired with obi python belts and sexy low-cut tops flashed just the right amount of skin, leaving enough to the imagination. Transitioning seamlessly from color to nude safari pieces didn’t seem too difficult a task for Giannini. Tassles were added for a bit of flair and a Morrocan-esque influence. Who says black can’t be a spring color? When you have harem jumpsuits and fringed, embellished bodices as gorgeous as these, it would be difficult to turn either down. The show closed with a few beautifully fringed dresses in bold colors and intricately detailed beading. Giannini left all those shades of gray and minimalist silhouettes behind and offered us something vibrant and exciting to keep us on our toes. The collection has something for everyone, and each piece is nothing short of wearable. To sum up, the versatility and cohesiveness of this collection ultimately makes this season a success for Giannini. I’m definitely excited to see a few pieces on our fave celebs.
