Gucci / Roberto Cavalli - Spring/Summer 2012

The Chrysler-Building by GUCCI

Not that there wasn't a littel backward glance two, though it was to the social, sexual, and stylistic revolution of the twenties, perhaps most explicity the Art Deco elegance of America - an ocean away from Florence, where in that same decade, house founder Guccio Gucci was just starting to sell luggage from the famiy saddle-makers. In particular, Frida Giannini was looking to the gilded gals of the Jazz Age, those ladies divine and decadent in eaqual mesure: "The women of that time who caused a sensation - Nancy Gunard, Louise Brooks," Giannini said.

There was certainly plenty of their then-radical idea of feminity, and their desire to express their sexuality without constrictons or restrictions in the graphically ornate series of back, white, and gold flapper dresses which, despite the weight of their beaded formations, moved in the most sinuous and lightest of ways; dresses that were an alluring alternative to the kind of hard-edge va-va-voom that Giannini has given Gucci in the past. Elsewhere she worked an androgyne theme but cleaned and gleamed it up with many chic permutations of short, metallic jackest, worn over black pants that tapered long and narrow over the ankles, embellished with gilt buttons.

Enjoy the video of '1921 Collection by GUCCI' and inside of her Museo celebrating 90 iconic years. Museo GUCCI opened on September 26th, 2011, at Piazza della Signoria, Florence.

Roberto Cavalli's parade of romantic floral dresses, if you took away the molto-Cavalli tooled-croc hip belt, were fluid, realtively quiet, and a kind of great. To the floor and cut on the bias, the sweeping frocks were done in pretty chiffon mixed with strips of black lace that, with varied degrees of embellishement, brought the looks closer to evening. Rendered in solid black or white with gold trim, ornate exotic skins, or opulent beads and sequins, the jackets and vests alos worked with the kicky gladiator minis in that same chiffon-and-lace combination. What felt like a misstep, literally, were the clunky carved wedge pumps. A more delicate shoe would have taken the romance to the next level. What do you thing?
