Gucci Spring 2015 Show

Old School

Gucci If you are a fan of the early 70s like yours truly, then you will love the Gucci SS15 show. Designer Frida Giannini sent out a collection that she told Vogue is “an evolution from fall”. A smart move since the fall collection was terrific. I love these four looks above, they certainly make getting dressed easy.

  • Love all of these, especially the simple white shirtdress/neckerchief + equestrian style bag = crisp and timeless. I actually wore dresses with large round brass buttons as shown above to junior high in the late 60’s/early 70’s. I believe it was called ‘military style.’ We couldn’t go bare legged, so nude stockings and loafers, or opaque knee hi’s were typical.

  • The Gucci show was indeed really great ! Frida Giannini is best when she sticks to retro looks, very seventies… I also loved the looks with jeans, a tad more modern but still very chic and cool !

  • These looks are still so fresh and sexy, as well as simple and easy to achieve while getting dressed for work on a busyish morning. It seems the key is great shoes and bag and good fabric for the dress or coat. Of course it would help if it were all Gucci! I can only dream (& use as guidance of course).

  • Nope, can’t go back there.

  • I lived thru that look as well, and find it stiff and confining. The red reminds of the “coat dress” style–was it really a coat or really a dress? But I like the white dress–it is more timeless.

  • I’m with Margo, I’m afraid.
