00280m 266x400 Gucci Fall 09

Gucci’s Fall 2009 Collection, which debuted in Milan last month, combines the sex appeal of guns, disco and the 80′s. The diva that Frida Giannini designed these pieces for is tough and  independent, with a side of glamorous. On Monday, she’ll let a pink flowy blouse peak out of a serious and slim-cut suit in any one shade of shiny gunmetal greys.  That same night she may belt a black sparkling disco-ball top over black tights. Saturday night is one for the stars, so she’ll dazzle in a long sleeve silver sequinned show stopper. Sunday, she feels both kinky and delicate, in a large polka dot splashed mini dress and  fetishistic thigh-high leather boots.  Next week, who knows? She might cheeze out on you  in an 80′s style shoulder-padded suede jacket. Serious and always ready to party. Such is the Gucci Fall 2009 woman.

giuilano fujiwara autumn 2009 collection 09 444x400 Giuliano FujiwaraIf Giuliano Fujiwara’s  2009 collection is any indication of where fashion is going this year, it appears as though color has given way to shape and texture. This week creative director Masataka Matsumura revealed the latest styles in Milan. The collection is dominated by grays, blacks and nudes and includes interesting fabric choices such as camel, velvet, bold leathers and highly textured flecked wool. Great attention is being paid to sharp cuts and square shapes, especially for the shirts and jackets. The accessory line, however, offsets the neutrality of the collection with its use of bright colors and plastic texture.
