Gucci Mens S/S 07 Preview

After the departure of Tom Ford, the sexy suave Texan who gave us the best-selling Japanese-inspired collection three years back (I remember seeing a girl friend buying a pleated corset in pink with raised flower details for a cool sum of RM 11 100.00 at Gucci KLCC), the house is getting back on its feet with the arrival of new creative director Frida Giannini.

With lack of experience in designing for men, Giannini channels her imagination into the type of boys most girls wanted to hang out with - the Roman boys. Male models strut their stuff on the runway at Gucci's Menswear show in leather jackets, loud graphical prints, scarves warpped around their necks, and technicolor hues of turquoise, purple and fuschia as well as a pair of printed hotpants (phew!) walking back and fro on the runway.

Though the collection reminds me of how duo Dolce and Gabbana interpret their men, it seems that a male's summer at Gucci will no longer be just suits and pants. Talking about suits and pants, the forthcoming season's collection also features finely cut suits that conforms to the male silhouette. In short, the new collection is suitable for both work and play occassions. So guys, start cleaning out your old wardrobe and stock on Gucci's new look.
