Gucci presents its Prefall 2015 collection for women
December 11, 2014: With a bourgeois soul and a style of the seventies, the Gucci
Prefall 2015 Collection has sleek, essential lines mixed with geometric prints for a new glamour.
Menswear materials offer timeless tailoring, while silk is the starting point for new dresses destined to become staples. Suits and outerwear have a form-fitting shape in tweed, herringbone and geometric jacquards. On coats and jackets, colorful trim and embroideries define pure lines. Blazers are sharp and smart with fabrics such as wool mélange. The low-waisted, cuffed short trouser in silk-wool, the flannel oversized pant, corduroy or flannel flares, and tapered pants will fill up your wardrobe. Black denim is enriched with black-on-black embroideries. Embroideries subtly form Nordic patterns on knitwear woven in mohair, merino, and alpaca.
Knee-length dress designs take inspiration from the chemisier. Defined waistlines, puffed sleeves, and fluid skirts alternate with more clean, jacquard mini-dresses. The leather dress turns heads thanks to snap closures, complete with a robe-inspired design, while studs and embroidery outline a crew-neck dress. Fur sets the tone with the woven goat jacket, shearling outerwear with Mongolian lamb on the neckline, and patchwork jackets in fox. Evening is multifaceted, from the printed gown to the tailleur, from mixed and matched separates to the cocktail dress.
A vintage palette includes warm shades of brick red, soft burgundy, apricot, dark orange, hints of pink, along with cooler tones including slate, dusty blue, and ivy green, as well as neutrals in the way of charcoal, black, and camel. True to the season’s sleek sharpness, statement accessories have a strong, contemporary allure. Chain-style handbags, in shiny brushed calfskin, exotic skins or suede covered with studs, add glamour to the runway. Striking lace-up shoes feature pointed toes and brogue workings on both stilettos and flats – in contrasting colors of python or leather.
