Gucci RTW Fall Winter 2009 2010

Restraint, sustainability, and tradition are the overwhelming themes present so far in Milan. these are words that Frida Gianni barely pronounces in her slightly scaled back rock and roll parade. Highlights included contrast color shirts, synthetic fibers in jackets and slim trousers. Square boycut jackets were paired with satin lined leggings in some looks. Its New Wave with ostentatious materials from start to finish, a brash paradox that Gianni has tapped into for several seasons but the air of economic sobriety turns the volume down to just the right level. Not all of it works (the belt loop chains are tacky rock groupie, inauthentic) but the young socialisto Gucci kid will find a lot to be happy about.
