Gucci Fall 2012

A trail of Romantic vixens sauntered down the Gucci runway in Milan, February 22. Adorned in a shadowy palette including onyx, rich jade, deep burgundy, the the models evoked a sense of the nighttime. Creative director Frida Giannini channeled the nineteenth century for inspiration for this bold fall collection. The masculine elements like structure and materials combined with lighter feminine silhouettes create a depth and balance to the collection. The use of sheer fabrics, fur, feathers, and strategically placed velvet add a lushness to each outfit –laced with the sensual and seductive. The collection displayed a wicked sort of glamour where darkness is truly opulent and beautiful.

Evan Rachel Wood in Gucci Premiere (NARS make-up)

Emma Stone in Lanvin (reportedly, it’s custom made)

Nicole Kidman in Versace

Also, as in the sickest vintage clothing from the 80s and 90s, it’ll blow your mind. If you’re an 80s kid or early 90s you will appreciate this store. I’m talking vintage Space Jam tanks, an Atlanta Braves snapback, and Coogi sweaters. If you have no idea what I just said, then stop reading now (kidding). My fashion sense is very 1980s, so when I stumbled across F As In Frank’s website, I was gushing. Fashion is supposed to be fun, so why not embrace that aspect? You don’t have to be all Balenciaga/Louis/Gucci all the time. They have a store in Vancouver and a new store in Toronto (West Queen St., to be exact). I haven’t made it over to the shop yet, since I just discovered them today, but rest assured, a trip will be made. I am obsessed with their tanks, and I must admit I really want a crazy Coogi sweater. It’ll be my personal homage to the 90s rap/hip-hop scene. Here’s their website. Check it out.

My picks:

Who wouldn’t want to rock this tank in the summer, complete with light wash cut-off jean shorts?

This Coogi sweater looks like the one Drake and Andy Samberg wore on SNL the other night.
