Forget about bashful demure femininity; unabashedly sexy, dark, mysterious and glamorous femme fatales are going to rule the next season – at least that’s what Italian fashion messiah Gucci tried to show in the latest Autumn/Winter 2013-14 collection at the Milan Fashion Week.
The internationally renowned fashion house, under its creative director Frida Giannini, opened the first day with a fierce and overtly feminine collection, which featured a range of bold tight fitting outfits. The provocatively sensuous line included glossy cinched waist black snake-skin suits, knee length pencil skirts, seamed fishnet stockings, wide necked floor-length leather dresses and sculptured cropped jackets.
The unapologetically sexy theme continued at clothing label Frankie Morello’s collection, which again included a series of super feminine strategically revealing ensembles. Created by the designer duo Pierfrancesco Gigliotti and Maurizio Modica, the range showcased red dotted micro mini hot pants, tailored jackets with shoulder detailing, cellophane hemmed black skirts and mirror embellished floor-length dresses.
Italian fashion designer and dressmaker Alberta Ferretti went back to the austere era for designing her latest collection. Featuring the softer side of femininity, the line included ivory, black and white hued floor-length gowns, ruffled skirts, long-sleeved shirts and simply-tailored rich velvet dresses.
