Menswear Spring 2014: Gucci
If you’ve ever questioned that man leggings could be a viable trend, Gucci’s Spring/Summer 2014 presentation will persuade you to cast those doubts aside. The tapered equestrian-style pants were used by creative director Frida Giannini to create a clean silhouette, allowing voluminous knit sweaters and large leather tees to provide a sense of balance. The muted color palette that has washed over the past few Gucci collections was adorned by dark florals that decorated silk tees, suit jackets, and pants alike. A printed suit in taupe and white accented with a floral tee and finished off with crisp leather sneakers is the ideal uniform for dining alfresco. The coral three-piece suit accessorized with a simple floral scarf would also be a welcome guest at this garden party. Chance of rain? Don’t fret! There were plenty of weather-appropriate parkas and color-blocked windbreakers that could withstand Mother Nature’s brutal wrath. Another picnic-ready treat from Giannini was the multi-functional leather backpack slash tote bag in a rainbow of neutral colors. So, what's for lunch?
