Gucci Cruise 2014

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
