Punk Sophisticated at Gucci Fall 2009 Menswear Show

 - Jan 20, 2009
Finally, flamingo pink for guys! The Gucci Fall 2009 menswear collection was full of shades only a confident man could pull off, and plenty of leather to boot.

The show started off with daring bursts of hot pink, blood red and Mediterranean blues which popped out from an otherwise ‘safe’ collection of grey suits with fine polka-dot and chainlink patterns.

On a whole, Frida Giannini’s Milan show was incredibly hip. There was nothing ‘old man’ about it, thanks to an 80s rocker ‘tude that set the mood. Some models sported retro shades, others donned furry scarves fit for Derek Zoolander, some were decidedly emo-chic, while others oozed with the edge of a badass biker.
