Gucci's "love dress"

Saw Gucci. Loved the dress. Also loved the shoes - quite a contrast to the hair sprouting confections from the last season. Curiously, the print of the dress was a map of an imaginary land of love from La Carte de Tendre book that inspired the collection. How fabulously odd that I picked that very "fashioned by love" dress? Truly, life without whimsy would be just as dull as life without Gucci...

My only reservation is that unless you look thoroughly this collection would seem pretty similar to the one before. And yes, you can dissect each outfit and create a multitude of ideas, but unless one is prepared to do so, it would be like a bedtime story you'd tell a kid over and over again with a few additions here and there to keeps things interesting.

So I'll leave it up to you to decide while I'll focus on my "love dress" to keep self occupied and quiet. But before I go... That trompe l'oeil trick was good, wasn't it? Reminded me of some vintage editorials from Italian Vogue - just google Roberta di Camerino 1970s designs to see what I mean. Curiously, in mid-1940s Guiliana Roberta di Camerino got inspired by Gucci's G's bag pattern for her own accessory line... And now Gucci's Michele took some inspiration from di Camerino for the latest collection. Looks like fashion doesn't simply move in circles, it can interlink into a mesh, too.

  1. Well, I just saw the whole collection, that dress is truly fancy and whimsical. Even though, I still cant recognize the "old" Gucci, curious to know what "Frida" would say about it!:P Goodnight! xo
