Gucci presents its Men's Prefall 2015 Collection
January 21, 2015: Taking inspiration from its equestrian heritage and love for other rich sports, Gucci’s Prefall 2015 Collection plays a key role in a season where sartorial style and jet-set attire seamlessly come together.
Layered outfitting gives a complete look to the gentleman moving outdoors for that match of horse riding. A retro fox-hunting look characterizes the red coat in tricotine, while jersey peacoats take inspiration from country quilts for subtle mélange stripes. New must-have jackets in deerskin take their cue from the horse-jockey uniform. Equestrian-inspired silk bombers and jackets add a sophisticated shine. Jacquard pullovers with a folk feeling can be worn underneath military-style outerwear with red contrast collars or the aviator jacket complete with shearling. Collegiate-inspired blazers, in raw-edged jersey or wool felt, make a victorious statement when worn with denim shirts or jeans.
The colour palette is earthy with shades such as ivory, khaki, cypress green, fuel blue, navy, tobacco, barn red and cardinal. The equestrian print is the hero in the collection.
The ultra-functional backpack undergoes artisanal treatment. Worn on the shoulders or held by its Bamboo handle, this new classic is a multipurpose leather bag designed as the perfect travel companion. Meanwhile, the cross-body leather messenger bag or the nylon tote and pouch provide an athletic accent. Monkstrap and lace-up shoes utilize shiny leather for a polished touch. Casquette de marin caps and printed pocket squares add distinctive details in the entire look.
