Take a look at Gucci Cruise 2014, for which
Creative Director Frida Giannini has taken
inspiration from Rio de Janeiro, and as she says is
“A collection of all my getaway essentials,
designed for an up and coming Jerry Hall beaming with breezy style.”
Jerry Hall by Richard Avedon
Layers are long and cool for this cross over season period
with relaxed layers and oversized tunics.
There are wrap dresses with asymmetrical pleats,
the new kimono gown and
Perforated suede bomber jackets,
basketball inspired t shirts, maxi shorts
alongside ultra feminine sweetheart neckline dresses.
Photographed against a orange, purple and pink rock-techno
South American Sunset, the whole palette of the collection
includes all the exotic colours of the area
sand and pearl, rust and copper, through to ochre yellow, nectarine,
nude blush, coral, passion fruit, lagoon green, kiwi and raspberry.
These shades are in ultra reflective materials - iridescent silk twill,
all-over thermosealed crystal embroidery and woven lurex.
We are loving the liquid metallic bronze t shirts, trenches and pants,
and sequinned shifts in shimmering gold and silver, wrap trenches
in matt butter soft fabrics - crepe de chine, suede and cashmere.
There is fabulous draping in milk, white and bitter chocolate tones
thru khaki, cream and sienna - take a look at the whole collection:
There is the most beautiful paisley prints and madras stripes in bright yellow saffron, ochre and mustard, mixed with seventies rainbow stripe knitwear
with maroon and raspberry with hints of fuschia
in prints of cascades of hearts, parasols, sailboats,
and beach balls, worn in long dresses,
short cropped sweaters tucked into long classic pants or short sleeve tunics
over loose pyjama style pants:
Then belted Feminine printed dresses
in aqua thru navy chiffon lurex
polka dot tea dresses halterneck jumpsuits
and a sparkling lilac sequin shift like a desert mirage ....
Bags for Cruise 2014 are in Deerskin with Bamboo closures,
clutches with metallic laminated leather,
cascade prints and stripes and the iconic horse bit.
Shoes include Metallic ankle strap platform shoes,
gorgeous ribbon tie flats and wedge sandals.
There are Web-stripe leather belts, A new Marina chain necklace,
and aviator sunglasses with Bamboo detailing.
Until next time J Xx
