MFW: LBDs to die for from Gucci, Versace, Pucci + more
No-one does grown-up glamour like the Italians, especially making the LBD look out of this world. After the effort of colour blocking, print clashing and working tricky pastels, it’s nice to be able to throw on a LBD to look (and feel) a million dollars…so thanks Italian designers for giving girls what we really want!
Gucci brought strategically-placed foliage, velvet and a touch of military romance to the catwalk (some red carpet looks here y’all) while Alberta Ferretti’s dresses were softer and beautifully made (and my personal favourite).
Versace’s collection was all about the tough girl (with scary hair) and party armour, with mesh creating structured pieces, fishnets, leather and a touch of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo about it.
And so on to Pucci. Sheer panels and geometric shapes were the order of the day. There were confusing references about the Bell du Jour look but if you ask us this is about self-assured women looking sexy, a little provocative in a covered-up (just) intriguing way.
