Oh, my goodness I have never had so many mixed emotions about a fashion show. Let’s get one thing straight first I’m writing this before I read the review on style.com and TFS so no comments like “oh, you copied off ___________(insert website here)”. This show was kind of ’late’, it was about 3 or 4 weeks ago when the other resort shows or collections were shown but never the less it’s still considered a resort show. I just can’t help but feel a touch of disappointment, the collection was really similar to the ss07 collection (paisley print, shift style dresses and Grecian princess feel) mixed with fw08 collection (hippy lux and 70’s Jane Birkin style) and the hair and makeup was pretty much exactly the same as fw08 (tossed waves, nude lip and dark eyes). But I love Gucci, I love the Gucci woman, I love the Gucci power, I’d love to work for Gucci. The show wasn’t groundbreaking but it real fitted under the category of ‘resort’ unlike Dior, Oscar De La Renta and Alexander McQueen. The simple white pants (ok fine I’d never wear white pants, I look like an elephant in a white suit), the paisley print shift, printed blouses and Grecian dresses. The selection of models were fantastic! Natasha Poly, Lily Donaldson, Abbey Lee, Snejana Onopka, not to mention how beautiful the location looked! 4 stars (out of 5).
