Milan Fashion Week, Spring 2009: Gucci

Not that she ever lost it, but Frida got her groove back. It's taken the designer a few seasons to really make a splash at the house of Gucci, and splashy this Spring collection is. With attendees like Rihanna and Rachel Zoe, I'm sure the aquarium colors and provocative shapes impressed. At Gucci there's always a lot of skin, but the clothes, many in vivid tropical and geometric prints, were spectacular spectacular.
Utilitarian pants met loose blouses. Asymmetrical cuts supplied sex appeal. Colorful suiting contrasted sheer blouses. Many designers are playing with pants for Spring, but Gucci's dresses may keep the all-in-one look afloat. The leafy prints are Fab, in both a purple and camel and a turquoise and lagoon blue combo. A safari-infused anorak was even given the Frida treatment: fun, sexy, and party-ready.
