For the Fall 2012 Ready-to-Wear Collection Gucci’s Frida Giannini ventured to the dark side.
Luxurious velvets, supple jet-black leather, intricate jacquards and the darkest versions of plum, green and brown made for a decadent ensemble of looks. Sexy-vampire wear may be another way to describe dark touches like a full-length cape, blood red high collars and sheer, tease-worthy blouses.
Towards the end, embellished, strategically-sheer tulle gowns amped up the dark theme to borderline evil. To complete the looks, lips were deep red, hair was simple and cheeks were shadowed. Welcome to the dark side, we’re happy to join.
