Frida Giannini has won me over completely with her Fall 2008 Ready-To-Wear collection, I am in love with every single stitch, of every single piece. Her sexy, confident style manifested itself this time as a Russian, hippie, rock chick, but one who can afford to look that way luxuriously. Peasant blouses, straight leg hipsters, fringed riding boots, flirty dresses, vests, trench coats, and lots of fur were layered, embroidered, printed, studded and accessorized to the max with gold chains, heart necklaces and pirate-esque belts.
Eight, magnificent, floor trailing dresses were the last pieces to show, some draped goddess style, some with sashes, some printed with feather patterns. The details were pivotal to the collection as well, like the adorable gold and black clutches bearing the Gucci logo, and the studded strappy heels. It was nice to see some color and pattern from a fashion week that was one all black show after another. This collection will definitely make for amazing shopping with its broad range of separates, and unique pieces.
