Any news on Frida Giannini's whereabouts nowadays? I cannot seem to find anything recent online, apart from her joining the Save the Children board back in July 2017.

I recently stumbled across Gucci's Spring 2013 collection and was suddenly reminded of how much I used to live for both Giannini's work and Gucci back then. She needs to make a comeback, ASAP!

^Been wondering the same thing! I know many found her uninspiring, but I quite liked a lot of what she did.

She must be taking care of her daughter and enjoying the money she has earned from her time at Gucci.

While i wasn't really a fan of her work at Gucci, she is still needed. I don't think that at Gucci she really had the opportunity to showcase her vision. She was very "scolaire" and followed the footsteps of Tom.

Bottega Veneta or even Ferragamo are houses that could do wonders with her. She understand luxury and to be honest most of the leather bags under her tenure are better than what Michele is doing today. They were really timeless.

Totally agree. She's not a boundary-pushing designer, but she certainly does understand luxury. I can't remember anything she did under her tenure looking particularly "cheap."

Perhaps--if she wanted to return--she could start her own leather goods house, because accessories are definitely her strong suit.

But don't forget, Alessandro was her accessories designer...

I did also wonder what had happened to her too. We need her kind of classic glamour back, in a day full of Demna and Alessandro's. This 'edginess' is becoming tiresome and I want back what she did at Gucci. There is no shame in having something beautiful, instead of this ugly streetwear that everyone is hyping over right now.

Totally Agree, this tacky thrift store fad has to go. I definitely miss seeing high octane glamour on the runways. While I hate some of Frida's work she did have some great moments like this one.

What is Frida Giannini up to? I really wish she would come back to another Italian fashion house. I really miss her work. Her Gucci collections were always the highlight for me during MFW.

I'm not knocking Alessandro's work. He's doing a good job at Gucci.
Frida's Gucci's is still needed, but maybe at a different fashion house...? Her work has always conveyed LUXURY to me, IMO.

She's one of the most underrated designers of all time imo.

I love most of her Gucci work circa 2010 - 2013. She knows how to deliver showstopping evening looks and coats. I particularly love seeing the former offerings in editorials and covers. Her Fall 2011 and Fall 2012 collections presented some of the most indelible fashion moments of the decade.

She may not be the most ground-breaking, or intellectually stimulating designers out there but she sure does know how to invoke desire. I echo everyone's sentiment here that she should've helmed Ferragamo.
