The stage for the Gucci Fall/Winter 2014 menswear show was set up darkly, a definite contrast to the light color combinations on the models, before the collection transitioned into all black attire. The unusual color palettes themselves show an influence from Canadian artist Kris Knight, which mixes a range of refreshingly soft colors.
Key garments from the collection included small pea coats, turtlenecks and slim trousers. The clothing has a 60s vibe to it, especially from accessories like the black fisherman’s hats, which were often sported by John Lennon.
For the most part, the collection is devoid of patterning, save for one pinstripe suit, which really puts the emphasis on the solid colors of each individual garment, its form, texture and detailing.
