Back to the sixties for Gucci’s Fall 2014 collection. Creative director Frida Giannini, whose story was recently told in The Director, a documentary about her design process, produced by James Franco and screened this January in Paris, looked into the house archives to deliver a collection made of clean lines and references to Gucci’s “casual” heritage. In her program notes, she said she “felt the need to materialize the essence of Gucci,” which included “remembering its early fame with those loafers and extending them to fabulous knee-high boots” (Suzy Menkes). Other sixties details included half belts on pea-coats, slightly raised waistlines, and the Jackie bag, Gucci’s iconic shoulder bag named for Jackie Onassis, commercial star of this collection.
