I can see this being a slightly more upscale mall collection.

Wow what a weird season we're having
it's like everyone lost their point

First of all: someone said something about the lighting , reallY! I cant even focus on the clothes with that flash on the floor!!!

This is messy, all over the place, a disaster
It has too many elements here, 60's, 70's, 80's...I dont know, it's too manipulated, it's like every outfit was created from different people...
the night part is awfull, unwearable

really, this is terrible, this season is sooo strange

i don't see how the evening looks could be unwearable



here is a simple dress with a simple print, made interesting with a twist and drape



another simple dress, but with long sleeves which have cut-outs



another simple one, with a single sleeve and a lovely drape at the hips, accentuated with a belt in a contrasting color



heavier stuff? simple LBD but the feathers around the top! omg!



more feathers! but this time going all the way down the dress!



a sexy see through number (i would have left the tights out...) with a feather bolero which has an ombre effect. how gorgeous are those ombre feather sleeves....



sequined black mini. how simple, yet beautiful is that...



more ombre feather sleeves. and pants which make the legs look long long long and lean.

all from style.it (thx helmut.newton)

how can you compare that to Frida's previous offerings?

this follows in the footsteps of the S/S10 collection of being one of her most focused and well executed collections yet. lord knows we're talking about slim pickings here, but an improvement is an improvement and that's that.

Street ..... do you realise we're defending a Gucci by Gianinni collection ?
Surreal and amazing !

But yes, the looks are very wearable and I can imagine this being on anyone from 20+ and still looking great ! Really love this collection .

Personally, I still cannot believe that I'm doing it too! It looks so decent, and it's actually very good. I mean, so good considering it's Gucci by Frida.

I know, it almost feels unnatural . Many pieces are really great considering Frida from some seasons ago . A huge change !
