Gucci at 90
Happy Birthday luxury fashion brand Gucci who celebrate their 90th year as one of the best in the business. The look is retro chic plus uber bold colours. Creative Director Frida Giannini is implementing a new eco-friendly strategy to project the brand into the future. As of June 2011, all of the brand’s iconic brown and gold packaging will be made from luxury sustainable materials.
Western is back with an outlandish take on the typical cowboy attire- making the trend more haute barn dance than dusty cattle ranch. The denim jacket is now sequined and shimmering thanks to Ashish, cowboy boots are beaded and boast a stiletto heel due to Nicholas Kirkwood, and mini skirts are available in suede fringed designs compliments of Michael Kors.
The King of Pop
The rock-meets-pop bling of Michael Jackson runs through the veins of fashion, influencing the catwalk even after the star’s death. From disco fever sequin, tennis ball shoulder pads or leather wrapped in chains, these looks still have the edge. Rihanna has been sporting the wish list Balmain military style jacket in bleached denim, plus a Jacko hairstyle, showing that girls can rock the look just as well as the men.
