At the Gucci S/S 2012 Show


Today I drove to Milan for Fashion Week S/S 2012. It is actually pretty nice to take the car as there is so much space to fit in all the lovely outfits. My first show was Gucci. As you know, I love the Italian brand.

Frida Giannini started of the show with some iconic prints and the combination of green and black. There was a lot of black and white to follow, definitely less colours than her two last seasons. Sharp tailored pants with cropped jackets. Fringes were all over. Next summer, there will be a lot of glitter and shine. Sparkling sequined flapper dresses, reminiscent of the Roaring Twenties, finished of this very wearable, beautiful collection.

Are you a Gucci girl? I surely am… stay tuned for the outfit I wore today (…and somebody else, too!).

LoL, Sandra
