Gucci - Milan
The temperature in Milan soured into the 30’s while Creative Director Frieda Giannini at Gucci sent androgynous looking models, inspired by Louise Brookes and Nancy Cunard in the images of Man Ray down the runway in stunning Art deco, Charleston style evening dresses, paved in architectural embroidery. Netting and chiffon were hand embroidered with carved plexiglass, prismatic crystals and baguettes overlapping for “decori-sculpture”.
