Gucci Fall/Winter 2014
By now, you know that I can’t resist fluffy coats or retro sunglasses. So, obviously, I very much appreciated the Gucci Fall/Winter 2014 show.
I am not always the biggest fan of monochromatic outfits because they can be boring if not properly executed. However, this look is an exception. Mainly because of the lovely pile-up of textures. I actually think the head-to-toe dusty rose coloring is genius because it forces the audience to observe and admire the different layers. Like the sumptuous fur, the matte suit, and the silky blouse. Ugh I want everything this model is wearing.
Please enjoy this zoomed-in image of the retro shades and ruffled collar.
I am so jealous of this model. She looks like she is being enveloped by a cloud of cotton candy and everything fluffy. And on a non-fashion-related note her haircut is fantastic. I aspire to pull off the tousled bob some day.
This look is, as my french host sister would say in her crisp accent, “très classe.” From the tailored peacoat to the creased pants to the floppy bag, it truly is the definition of “classe.” The color palette is also very easy on the eyes. If you learn one fashion tidbit from my blog, I hope it is that pastels are always lovely. Always.
And, of course, I need to discuss this LBD. Because it is especially delightful. I am in love with all the subtle accents like the detailing on the shoulders, the waist cut-outs, and the leather collar. The belt is also tasteful and slimming. Plus, if you look closely, the (fantastic) snakeskin boots have matching metal attachments on the front. Snaps to Gucci for being coherent.
