Gucci’s creative director Frida Giannini, fall 2013 collection was charged with masculine energy built for a timeless gentlemen wardrobe. “Modern with a romantic soul,” is how Frida Giannini described the man she designs for.
In a collection marked by classic styles from the 60s and classic English fabrics, Giannini’s mix included herringbones, Glenplaid, tweed, and flannel mixed with mohair. The color story of sky blue, chartreuse, stark black, and rich burgundy was one of the most seductive palettes seen on the mens catwalk this season. For daywear, Frida Giannini played with textures by pairing jet-black loose fitting leather trousers with shapely citron green mohair sweaters, accessorized with silk scarves tied around the neck. For evening models sported the traditional suits, opting for a tuxedo made in tweed or lavish brocades fabrics.
The collection was highlighted by sartorial coats in various incarnations such as, cadet jackets in powder blue and winter white, and voluminous officer coats. Peacoat’s came in classic charcoal tweed and traditional wool fabrics in muted citron green.
Gucci’s fall/winter 2013 collection proved to be timeless for the modern men, fusing elegant construction with playful elements made this collection one of Frida Giannini’s best menswear collection to date.
