At first glance this collection looked a bit ho-hum. It was quite predictable, it had that Gucci sheen and extravagance which can sometimes look a bit gauche and its aesthetic was basically all embellishment - which seemed a bit of a cop out. On a second and third look, I changed my mind and decided that for what it was - a metallic, graphic, embellishment-themed collection - it did it quite well. There aren't many designers who can make this extravagance look wearable and street-worthy - not just cocktail party attire. It also helped to have some of the best models on the runway, but I'm not sure the doe-eyed beauty look did the clothing any favours. All in all a much better collection than previous seasons, as if you take a look, I have previously only chosen a few pieces from Gucci to post on this blog.
