What an incredible way to kick off Milan Fashion Week! At 8 a.m. this morning, I tuned into the Gucci livestream, and watching the luxe, opulent collection come down the runway was the perfect start to my day. If I had the means, I would wear all Gucci, all day, every day. I adore Gucci. And I adore Frida Giannini's romantic fall collection. Drawing on the house's equestrian heritage - but in a darker, more Victorian direction than Ralph Lauren's equally stellar fall outing - the collection was a sumptuous mix of velvet, fur, silk, leather, jacquard, brocade and silk chiffon in burgundy, deep olive, navy, plum and black. A pair of jodhpur pants tucked into stiletto field boots and worn with a leather cape jacket and chunky sweater looked fantastic, as did the languid, flowing wide leg pants in silk and velvet. Actually, all of the day clothes were pretty fabulous, and the evening wear, from the feathered long sleeve dress to the closing series of chiffon gowns with glimmering embroidery, was exquisite.
