Gucci Cruise Collection 2011 by Frida Giannini

{YBA} Frida Giannini is known for adding as many bells and whistles on the Gucci runway as possible, but for Cruise 2010, she kept it sleek, all black, navy, and white with body-conscious silhouettes.  Perennial Gucci girl Abbey Lee Kershaw was one the lookbook girls — she debuts a new fringed haircut.

Meanwhile, Frida departed for a tour of Asia today, stopping in Tokyo to pick up the award for International Designer of the Year from the Fashion Editor’s Club of Japan on June 1, then heading to Beijing to visit the Radiant Children’s Eye Hospital, of which Gucci is a donor, and finishing off in Shanghai, where she’ll celebrate the opening of Gucci’s new flagship.

An urban vibe, an ultra glamorous spirit, military uniforms and a sprinkling of the Seventies characterized Frida Giannini’s collection for Gucci. Tiger stripes were big, as were overdyed iconic chain and belt prints. Skinny pantsuits had a rocker-cum-military feel, while dresses were of the less-is-more variety.

Gucci Cruise 2011 Collection looks pretty and simple. No funky details have been used by creative director Frida Giannini in the outfits. The less-is-more seems to be the slogan again.

Frida Giannini’s collection for Gucci – Tiger stripes in khaki, army green and gray along with an iconic Gucci belt and slim strapless dresses, Skinny pantsuits had a rocker-cum-military feel, one-piece swimwear, and ombre trench coat.
