Gucci Fall 2011

MILAN, Mar 23, 2011/ FW/ — One word sums up the Gucci Fall 2011 collection – WOW! And WOW again!

Saying that it is a solid collection is an understatement. Frieda Giannini found the perfect balance between elegance and modernity, classic and modern and most of all, giving a feeling of luxury without being ostentatious.

Military-inspired double breasted coats will appeal to metro girls from 14 to 40 while the singe-breasted leather coat with a hidden placket paired with a fur store will be a welcome sight anywhere in the world it is cold.

Best part, when Giannini decided to go manly, she did not forget that women still want to feel feminine though they might be wearing pants. Striped wide legged trousers paired with snug-fitting jacket and a silk blouse with a bow just speaks volumes of old money and old world elegance.
