Gucci Catwalk Fashion Show Milan SS2012

According to WWD Gucci’s new collection was inspired by a gentlemen’s club. “But a very relaxed one with a sporty attitude,” creative director Frida Giannini told WWD backstage before the show.

The inspiration was visible in the checked (hounds tooth, Prince of Wales and Glen plaid checks) suits, the classic  cardigans and the bow ties. It was also in the absence of socks and ties, which you wouldn’t necessarily miss if Giannini hadn’t said anything.

Like the boys at Calvin Klein and Bikkembergs The guys from Gucci’s club are sporty types too, we could tell by the leather trim on a red coat and the large pockets on some of the shorter jackets. Yet unlike many other menswear brands we saw this week Giannini didn’t go with the loose, relaxed silhouette. Her designs stayed classic and tailored; probably just how the English gentleman likes it.

  1. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post
    seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if
    this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser
    compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon. Thanks
