Milan Fashion Week: Gucci Designer Frida Giannini knows how to deliver clothes that are ready to wear. Her menswear collection for Spring 2012 strength is it’s just so desirable. From the cut of the narrow pants, to the tailored fitted jackets and the return of the bow-tie for evening – it’s elegant but cool.
“I was thinking about Michael Caine of the ’60s,’’ Frida Giannini, the Gucci designer, said backstage to Guy Trebay of the New York Times before her spring 2012 show. “The unconventional, relaxed Michael Caine of “Alfie,” the way he wore his suits with an open shirt.’’
The collection felt like it was made for young, fashionable guys like stylist and Bravo TV reality star Brad Goreski, who has made the bow-tie his signature look. Goreski is currently in Milan reporting for Details Magazine and in the fall you will be able to see him on his new reality show on Bravo called It’s a Brad Brad World.
We love the whole mood of new Gucci Menswear collection for Spring 2012 and we’re sure it will be a hit when the collection goes in stores next year. You can really imagine any man wanting to dress this way. Watch the full runway show video.
Milan Fashion Week: For Burberry Spring 2012 Designer Christopher Bailey decided to focus on arts and crafts. The Spring 2012 Collection is a real departure for Bailey, it had a real ethnic influence – he showed plenty of sweaters with crocheting, stitching, embroidery and handblock prints.
With this collection Bailey seemed to be turning his focus back on design, instead of the immediacy of selling the collection on the internet. Burberry has been at the forefront of the digital revolution that has swept designer fashion, live streaming its shows globally with almost 7 million fans on its Facebook Page.
“I wanted to celebrate the idea of craftsmanship. I love the whole digitalization of the world. But I don’t think one has to be at the expense of the other,” Bailey said backstage to Associated Press after Saturday’s preview.
There was a slight nod to technology in the show the models in the finale carried alligator iPad sleeves. But this season Burberry’s native Scotland, too, had its due. Most of the outfits were topped with a hand-crocheted raffia golfing hat, complete with a pompon. Shoes were cork soled-moccasins or easy loafers at times contrasted with woven tapestry.

The Gucci Menswear Collection for Spring|Summer 2011 was inspired in part by the music of the Rolling Stones 60’s classic “Exile on Mainstreet“. Backstage after the show, Designer Frida Giannini said the collection is about “unconventional luxury” and is for a man that describes his soul as a “gypsy deluxe”. “It’s this delicate balance between the formal and unconventional with the free spirited non-chalant attitude“.
