    Reminds me of the Helmut Lang floral pants.

    i think the shoes and bags are nice but still not very gucci! they made their biggest mistake by hiring Tom Ford coz his designs may remain in people's minds for a very long time

    ??? But what about the decade of massive profits they enjoyed whilst he was there

    Not a massive Tom fan, but I don't think someone having a signature/populist style is a reason not to hire them in the first place?

    Populist, though I hate this word in this context, means money. Tom had the ability to create what the street wanted without going for the obvious or tacky. It's the exact same thing that Donatella lacks for Versace, she goes for the tacky and easy and profits are falling every year!

    I love this print. It is a vintage Gucci print that was first made for a scarf in 66. Lovely.

    Once I got the e-mail, I thought Gucci had stooped so low as to sell flowers endorsed by Gucci. The shoes and bags are ugly

    Yes I do think so too. However a little too Laura Ashley. Guuci is all about boldness, but now its turning so ladylike.

    I absolutely agree, Tom Ford made Gucci sexy, Gucci was sex... the advertising, the skimpy dresses, the superhigh heels, a Gucci show just oozed of it. I think they have a new strategy to go back to Italian craftmanship and tradition in some sort of way. Perhaps make it more classy and chic? I doubt if this is the right way...

    no, no! i think it is a great move!!

    think about it - the jet set glamour is a thing of the past, we need to move on! and they are doing it by moving away from that superluxe sexy look.

    it would be good to leave it in the 90s.. where we can get all nostalgic for it.

    I have always been a firm believer of the new chic, however is it what Gucci needs now?
