Milan Fashion Week opened yesterday wit a bang: the Gucci fashion show with a horde of femme fatales walking the runway. The collection is very dark and sexy in an understated provocative way. Leather was one of the prevalent materials, with high-necked python t-shirts, coats and covered-up dresses revealing the bad girl beneath the femme fatale look. The accessorizing was kept at a minimum not to divert the public's attention from the clothes - snakeskin boots and structured bags with no other embellishment than the bamboo handles and luggage-lock fastenings, reminding us of the House's tradition in luxury luggage.
Among my favorite pieces are the deep burgundy dress in the opening look, the red suit paired with a high-necked leather top, the black form-fitted dress, the houndstooth skirt paired with a black python leather jacket, the brick orange chiffon dress or the fabulous blue coat with astrakhan lapels. These are the most interesting looks from the runway:
All in all a very dark and interesting collection. What were your favorite looks?
