This season has dusted off my idea of what Italian designers were capable of and has place them back on my fashion radar. 

Frida Giannini just knocked my socks off with her collection for Gucci’s Spring 2011 show. Choosing to begin the show with a PUNCH of jewel toned color blocked power outfits was a very good decision and caught my attention immediately. After her exercise in color, Giannini moved to monochromatic textural pieces. The separates in this show were solid enough to stand on their own but the outfits throughout the show were epic. 

 

I would literally wear this jacket (above) with the hair slicked back, killer shades, and the red lipstick every day if I could!
