2009 Fall Milan Fashion Week: Gucci

Where there's metallics, there's Fab. Where there's asymmetrical stripes, shots of turquoise, and bold shoulders there's Frida Giannini's Fall. Keeping the '80s trend strong, Gucci presented a dark, shimmering collection. Kimono and draped tops atop leather and sparkling leggings are party-girl perfect. Lagoon colors of turquoise, azul, and gray are appealing, while loads of black are always apropos. A couple mod suits are thrown in for tailored fun, while nary a gown in sight. But for night owls, girls do have the option of the sparkling jumpsuit or slinky belted mini dress. Polka dots, sheer blouses, and itty-bitty tailored pants add to the fun, but I must ask: Is it all too '80s? Or just right?
