Breaking free from Milan’s monochromatic mood, Frida Giannini presented boxy shapes combined with soft, pastel colors for Gucci menswear Fall Winter 2014.
The show started with dreamy shades of pastel pinks, chalky peach and baby blues spread across straight-leg trousers, mohair jumpers, and mod tailored pea-coats. The second half welcomed a moodier shift, with layering items – leather jackets, drainpipe jeans and wool cardigans – all in black.
With Canadian painter Kris Knight referenced in the show notes, Giannini offered a relatively minimal aesthetic, in contrast to her pattern-heavy spring/ summer 2014.
Accessories also played a big role this season, with leather (and one crocodile) tote bags in taupe, toffee and black, folded in half and tucked under the arm.
