Cut the Edge Chic ... Gucci Resort 2011

The sight of the safari-inspired look – belted camo green shorts, safari jacket (almost look like due to its colour) and hallmarked printed shirt – without thinking much, made me perceived that Frida Giannini must have been looking to Africa for inspiration.

But I was wrong and forgotten that it’s not Africa but rather the ongoing military fever. Should I say blame it on Balmain? Certainly fashion heaven forbid! Unlike Philo’s collection for Céline, Giannini’s approach is more relaxed and subdued. The pieces are exactly what girls or young women would like to wear on everyday basis, such as the bone coloured shift that is free from all sor
ts of flamboyance.

There's also a simple and belted scarf dress with shortened hem that can be worn from the break of dawn to the next day, or perhaps, the simple ensemble of polo tee, brown leather jacket, a pair of blue jeans and a matching leather tote bag – a look that most of us will happily consider as our uniform for life.

Talking about jackets, jacket lovers will be absolutely thrilled to find more than one style for the Cruise/Resort collection, with a few is meant to channel out the rock star spirit in you. (After all, the global fashion authorities don’t moniker Frida Giannini as the fashion world’s rock star for nothing.) Furthermore, aside from the amazing selection of daywear or pieces that you can wear round the clock, Giannini has also included an array of feminine evening dresses that literally spell elegance and effortlessness.

Gucci Resort 2011 ready-to-wear collection and accessories are available at all Gucci boutiques and selected multi-brand boutiques and fine departmental stores worldwide.
