menswear collections: gucci, fall

by Jeremy Danté

based in a palette of grey & deep browns, the menswear collection presented for the house of gucci was one of expected chic & usual style direction. at the entrance of the show sequence, a suede trench coat was matched with a pale pink dress shirt & plum colored tie. use of fur was done extravagantly well, while the grooming of the collection kept the runway show poised & perfect without a hair out of place. i love the use of color, especially in the contrast of blue against brown. that said, the collection presents nothing profoundly modern or even new- while i applaud giannini’s sensibility to accessories & ultimately in commercializing the brand; here, nothing revolutionary is breaking new ground. a fair collection overall, im sure it will sell well but how is the collection pushing the limitations or restrictions of menswear? from cool greys, to excellent contrasts the collection ends on a typical style note, associated with fomal evening wear, as black on black designs closed the show.
