Iconic Price & Iconic Style: Gucci 2012 Spring RTW


For this week’s Iconic Price & Iconic Style I have decided to do something a little different. I will be using Gucci’s Spring 2012 RTW collection for Iconic Style and showcasing you affordable, yet similar options, for Iconic Price. It was truly that iconic!

ICONIC STYLE

Looking back to the 1920′s Creative Director, Frida Giannini’s latest collection was pure genius. Wowing the fashion set with flapper dresses, boxy blazers and tailored pants, there wasn’t a critic in the audience who wasn’t inspired, myself included (no, I wasn’t there I was inspired by the pictures sillies!). I loved the fact that she put an updated and relevant spin on the classic flapper dress and other styles in traditional Gucci colors such as black, white, gold and green.

Above you can see her tailoring, precision to detail with embellishments and sequins, and almost retro-visionary style. Below you can see price-friendlier options to dress like a Gucci girl, even if you can’t actually be one. When will Gucci partner w/ a low-end retailer??? Comment on the post if you want it to happen!
