Floral Surprise at Gucci Menswear spring 2014
Flowers aren’t just for girls when springtime rolls around. Designer Frida Giannini wanted to show that a man in floral can still be masculine. Gucci Menswear spring 2014 collection is a combination of pretty prints and male staples. Incorporating happy patterns has become Gucci’s trademark, and they were not left out in this assortment of collared shirts, suits, outerwear and even an eye-catching jumpsuit. Take a walk in this beautiful garment garden, baptiste radufe included.
The silk suits look so on point and suave. They’re paired with printed scarves that make the look Lothario-ready…with a hint of mature sophistication. The mesh sweaters seem comfortable and the large leather rucksacks don’t look out of place. There’s a taste of military fab in the several coats with very strong silhouettes. The cropped pea-coats and boxy tops make another appearance (both looks are trending!), but look effortlessly brand new in this collection. The hues may look flamboyant with light pinks, greens and yellows, but they’re accented exceptionally with tougher army green. It’s a beautiful contrast.
The rest of the formal pieces shine. The remaining suits are gorgeous in printed light violet, and the polk-dot infused looks feel so romantic. There’s even a heavy amount of leather sets that sizzle. They’re so white hot, you might just burn yourself. Even the salmon color looks cutting-edge, like a shade we just haven’t seen in a while. It’s a good thing it’s back. Passionate but still manly, fdmLOVES GUCCI Menswear spring 2014 selects by Brigitte Segura, written by Allison Ripa.
