Exploring the New Gucci Spring/ Summer Collection 2013
The Italians are known for many things; good food, football and, of course, fashion. Founded by Guccio Gucci in Florence in 1921, this billion dollar company is Italy’s biggest selling brand and has 278 stores worldwide. Known largely for their leather goods, Gucci has a stellar reputation for the manufacture of fine clothes, accessories and footwear. International film stars who had travelled to Florence in the 1950s and ‘60s were drawn to the classic style and the brand soon extended outside into foreign territories – and with it came glamorous implications. That sense of glamour has remained to this day and in the early 2000s Gucci was the most widely copied brands out there. This is likely due to the fact that this brand is not cheap and a suit from this fashion design company can easily cost you several grand.
Let’s take a peek at some of the looks of Gucci’s Spring/ Summer 2013 collection.
Gucci is going bold with their Spring/ Summer 2013 collection. This season is screaming big and bright, playing on some of their classic looks but with a playful style. Gucci tends to be associated with extreme wealth as their adverts frequently feature the young, bored and beautiful, with a Mediterranean vibe. This season is tapping back into that, evoking images of sipping martinis on yachts in the deep blue sea.
White loafers, silk tops, cropped pants, subtle detailing; the Spring/ Summer collection is going for holiday sleek. Light and airy combinations of silk and cashmere, as well as twill for durability, make the new collection eye catching and comfortable. Red, green, white and yellow are common colours this year in the collection and will ensure that you won’t blend in to a party.
If you’ve got the coins, make sure you save up for Gucci; their clothes style rarely disappoint.
