Gucci a/w 2012-13: The New Direction…

Source: gucci.com via Ayesha on Pinterest Whilst the Fashion gliteratti celebrates the collections of spring summer 2013 the civilians amongst us are still very much in 2012, feeling the weather growing colder by the day. So...the research for the amalgamation of my winter wardrobe has begun. Before I head to the high street or make any major purchases, I get a feel for the key trends and the overall tone for the season by  going straight to the source - the catwalk. So let's start with Gucci - because I always do. Gucci's a/w 2012 collection is sensuous, decadent and opulent.

Jazz Baby – Inspired by Gucci Spring Summer Collection 2012

Jazz Baby by Ayesha Charles Trumpets drone and Jazz music plays Flappers flick their legs, with a martini haze, They tap their T-bar shoes as they jiggle and shake In slinky tube dresses with low slung waists, Feathers and sparkles show opulent taste And bejewelled cloche hats illustrates an impertinent face, With lined doll like eyes that ignite the night They dance the Charleston with no end in sight, They embrace a gathering as it were a surprise And celebrate being a Dame like receiving a prize, Seeking attention from a Slicker’s roaming eyes They roll nude stockings half way up their thighs, They work the party like an actress on stage Wisecracks and sharp talking like their reading from a page These little flappers never fail to amaze. It’s 1920, it’s the prohibition, it’s the Jazz Age.

Gucci Spring Summer Collection 2012

Never has the drop waist dress looked so fabulous... Gucci SS 2012 When people who work in fashion ask me who my favourite fashion designer is, I always say Balmain or Azzedine Alaia, however, the truth is it's Gucci. It always has been and as long as the likes of Tom Ford and Frida Giannini are behind the design it probably always will be. I say Balmain because Gucci sounds so cliche. There was a time when everybody and their neighbour owned a Gucci wallet, Gucci trainers or a Gucci bucket bag and I should know because I happen to own all three, so I say Balmain to sound a little bit more fashion savvy. I hold Gucci very dear to my heart, it has sentimental value. My first pair of designer shoes and my first designer handbag were Gucci. Gucci made me fall in love with high fashion and since this love affair began a Gucci collection has never failed to have...
