Gucci - Milan Fall 2009
(MILAN) No matter what Frida Giannini shows, it governs dinner-table discussions in Milan at least until Miuccia Prada has her say. The critical debate, of course, surrounds the merchant-versus-designer question, with some applauding Giannini for delivering trends directly and accessibly to the Gucci customer while others suggest that such a storied house merits a bit more vision. But in these times, Giannini's straightforward approach makes more heaps of sense. She delivered her own take on '80s glam-rock, with models in slicked-back hair and fuschia eyeshadow paying respects to David Bowie. The silhouette was hyperlean on the bottom, with second-skin pants, thigh-high leather boots and/or headband-size skirts. Iridescent mesh also figured heavily in disco-ready dresses and tiny slivers of top. Giannini's signature pantsuit made more than a few cameos, just as it has in the past two seasons. Clearly, the girls go for it--a serious accomplishment indeed, these days.
