If a Swinging London mod girl from the 1960s was stuck in a My Little Pony colour palette and took a trip to Rome to smarten up her look for bar-hopping on Via Veneto.
Warpaint "Love Is To Die", Ladytron "He Took Her to a Movie", Charlotte Gainsbourg "Hey Joe" – all perfect dreamer girl staples to waft around wearing those pastel beavers.
Stand out look:
A pale blue A-line dress in the butteriest (yes, that is a made-up word) nappa leather with ruffles down the front bib. It can't be called baby blue when rendered in leather like this.
How they wore it:
Rumpled post-beehive hair and thick goggle-esque tinted sunglasses edged with metal to hide what happened the night before and sturdy go-go boots that go from day to night depending on if you opt for pastel-hued leather, black patent or slinky python.
Where was the glamour:
It was a surprisingly demure turn for Frida Giannini, who often mines the 1970s era of Gucci's archives for a heavy dose of glamour. Case in point – the stray pair of jeans in the second look. Still eveningwear was addressed by a sparkly set of Courrèges-esque minidresses. This was Giannini's reinterpretation of the youthquake.
