Get these 20 outfits and glow, girl!


THE COLOURS, SO RICH AND DAZZLING, REMIND ME OF TOM FORD'S FIRST COLLECTIONS THAT SHOOK THE FASHION WORLD TO ITS FOUNDATIONS WITH ANDROGYNOUS SHIRTS, PANTS CUT LIKE MEN'S AND LOWSLUNG TROUSERS WITH BIG BUCKLES.

NOW IT SEEMS CURRENT GUCCI DESIGNER FRIDA GIANINI IS DOING A TOM FORD WITH THE NEW SEASON'S LOOKS WHICH HARK BACK TO THE GROOVY 70S! THE LATE AND GREAT YVES SAINT LAURENT WOULD APPROVE AS MANY OF GUCCI'S APPAREL WILL BE PERFECTLY AT HOME WITH YSL'S HEYDAY COLLECTIONS FROM THE 70S AND 80S.

OR IT CAN BE SAID ALSO YSL'S DESIGNS BACK IN THE 70S AND 80S WERE SO GROOVILY COOL THEY DO NOT LOOK A STITCH OUT OF PLACE TODAY IN 2011. BOTH WAYS, WHICHEVER YOU ANALYSE GUCCI'S SMASHINGLY DELICIOUS NEW COLLECTION, YOU WILL WANT TO RESERVE THEM NOW SO YOU CAN PICK THEM UP AT GUCCI PAVILION COME NOVEMBER.

THE WOMEN LOOK DIVINELY GORGEOUS, FABULOUSLY WEALTHY AND DEFINITELY SEXY YET THE CLOTHES ARE EMINENTLY WEARABLE AND, DARE I SAY IT, PRACTICAL.

SURE, THE FUR STOLES, FUR ARM WRAPS AND FLOWER-FILLED CUT-OUT JACKETS AND FUR-TRIMMED BOLEROS MAKE MAJOR STATEMENTS ABOUT YOUR GOOD TASTE AND BOTTOMLESS POCKETS OR AT LEAST MELT-PROOF CREDIT CARDS BUT THEY ARE ACTUALLY EASY AND COMFORTABLE TO WEAR.

YES, A FEW PIECES ARE SEE-THROUGH AS THIS TRANSPARENT BLOUSES ARE THE NEXT HOT THING BUT YOU CAN ALWAYS WEAR A CAMISOLE OR JUST A BRA WHICH I THINK IS EVEN SEXIER TO LOOK AT UNDER A CHIFFONY, SEE-THRU BLOUSE RATHER THAN NIPPLES FORCED TO STAND ERECT BY RUBBING ICE ONTO THEM. YES, THE MODELS TELL ME THEY DO THIS SO THEIR NIPPLES APPEAR FIRM, FRISKY AND PERKY ONSTAGE! WONDER IF IT WORKS FOR MEN. I WILL TRY AND LET YOU KNOW.

FOR ONCE, THE CLOTHES, AND I AM NOT JUST REFERRING TO GUCCI BUT TO ALL DESIGNERS, LOOK BETTER AND MORE ALLURING THAN BAGS, SHOES AND ACCESSORIES. USUALLY BAGS AND SHOES SELL BETTER AS YOU CAN BE A FAT MIDGET AND STILL WEAR GUCCI SHOES AND LUG GUCCI HANDBAGS BUT CANNOT FIT INTO THEIR CLOTHES. BUT THIS TIME, I SUSPECT THE DRESSES WILL PERFORM BETTER AS I CAN HARDLY DECIDE WHICH ENSEMBLES I LOVE BEST AS I SEEM TO LIKE 98% OF THEM!

I like these too!

GUCCI'S Women's Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 Collection

Floating clouds of colorful fur, elusive transparency, masculine accents, glimpses of patent leather for a lady of mystery
and irony. The stylish provocation of a daring colour palette. Eyes hidden by a wide-brimmed hat, with feathers,
recalling an eccentric muse. For the Autumn Winter 2011-2012 season, the Gucci woman dresses with a cinematic
allure and a strong seductive power. Entrancing like a performance by Florence Welch from Florence and the Machine.
Intriguing like archive images of Anjelica Huston photographed by Bob Richardson. As a film noir in color.

"This is a contemporary female dandy who fuses glamour and seduction using the iconic codes of the House. She is a
polished woman with a decisive personality, who is attentive to detail and willing to dare," commented Frida Giannini.

SILHOUETTE
Sartorial details and dramatized Seventies proportions. Influenced by a vision of the Forties. The line drops down to the
knee and flares. Stoles emphasize shoulders, tight on small masculine jackets with striking lapels and on coats with
military detailing and a synched waist. Subtle feminine belts are accentuated with leather trim. Flowing, ethereal dresses
give way to see-through effects and tie at the neck with long scarves. The masculine side returns with extra-wide pants, in
lightweight nabuk or in exclusive British mélange fabrics. And the pant-skirt becomes a signature, paired with a caban
and over-the-knee boots. Worn with black and white graphic prints. Polka dots, geometric prints, light pied de poule. For
an incognito get away.

MATERIALS
Skin on skin. The chemisier and the strapless dress in nappa, in whimsical colors. Teal, rust, emerald green, cherry, lilac,
lime, highlighted by the artisanal fur treatments on a wild-deluxe caban, collars, sleeves, basques. Hand-painted python
for biker jackets, shearling for hippy-style coats. And an artisanal fusing technique that unites fox, mink, and goat hair
loomed into one piece. Through to the tranquility of silk and tweed electrified by unexpected details in patent with a
Helmut Newton fetish flavor.

EVENING
Columns of sensuality. Chiffon and organza dresses blowing across the skin. Airy, elusive eroticism, silk culottes
underneath a transparent veil. Complemented by abstract and opulent floral sculptures realized with organza petals,
chiffon, and habotai. Hand-painted flowers become one of a kind. For a secret garden.

ACCESSORIES
A masterclass in the craftsmanship that has always been Gucci's signature, marking a striking return to more structured
bags. A spectrum of exotic skins. Crocodile, lizard, and ostrich assuming the color palette. The debut of the new Stirrup,
first created in 1975, with a spur closure in a semi oval shape. A series of new additions to the 1973 collection. While
the New Jackie is newly proposed with a long detachable shoulder strap. Ton sur ton light plateaus for knee-high boots,
in black patent leather. Mary Janes with contrast piping, with a python strap for evening. A geometric take on eyewear.
Block-shaded oversized sunglasses with square lines. Maxi studs on the bangles for the evolution of the horsebit.
Cartridge effect on the bracelet. Onyx earrings and a ring with a pointed prism. Jewelry for a dangerous beauty.
