Gucci Fall 2008

During her past few years at Gucci, I imagine Frida Giannini in the studio starting with basic black, brown, or gray looks, then adding neon, design, bold, or gold here (sometimes everywhere). Last season she splashed yellow on black-and-white, this season, she accessorized and patterned the hell out of very basic, pants with blouses, mini skirts, and long slim-cut dresses. The first two looks have a powerful and masculine presence, especially taking into consideration the gauntness of the models. Something an 18th century prince might wear? Or maybe the red and gold fabrics remind me of curtains from Versaille? The fringe boots, beach hair, minx coats, and overall relaxedness are oh so boho. Unfortunately, once Sienna Miller gets here paws on the collection it will officially become hippie chic. The gold is fantastic, reminiscing Gucci's early days and keeping the hippie for the rich.
