hmmm, up until that comment right there, I actually liked Pilati even though I don't like his work.


Not so much anymore...

Frida is amazing. Vintage has become so mainstream snd she's reviving Gucci's heritage in a very tasteful way. "Sexy" is not the same kind of "sexy" it was 10 years ago.

I agree wit you jf813, for the last summer look Frida made the 50's & 60's looks fresh & trendy, & now for this fall 80's are back in a smart & fresh way... she get a credit for that ... I guess it is the time for a new GUCCI that revive its origin & heritage.....
....however, sometimes I still miss Tom's sleek touch..I'll wait for his brand to come out ..

More than her single pieces, I appreciate Frida's attempt to give a different identity to Gucci label, her daring to find a new path for it, putting back the light where once was only sexed-up darkness. Copying Ford without being Ford was exactly what irritated most of buyers and press about Facchinetti's collections and what lead to her early dismissal. Gucci now is different, you may like it or not, but still have to recognize that Giannini is following her personal instinct.

while i very well liked s/s 06, i suspect it didn't do so well, otherwise i wouldn't understand the need to go back to ford's hard and slick aestethic for f/w 06... i guess she is more susceptible to the powers-that-be needs than ford ever was...
