The 2014 Gucci Resort Collection is all about metallic fabrics and loose-fitting designs. These two characteristics combine to create a futuristic, androgynous style.

Traits of masculine clothing have been slowly creeping into female fashion. The Gucci Resort Collection supports this androgynous look while proving that women can still look feminine and beautiful even without traditional female garb. One such piece is a metallic gold pantsuit. Its shimmering fabric and loose-fitting design make it a great example of feminine-turned-masculine clothing. Metallic fabrics are common in women's fashion but baggy designs are typically reserved for men. By combining the two in this ensemble, Gucci proved that gender-specific fashion trends do not have to stay in their assigned gender category.

The 2014 Gucci Resort Collection is absolutely stunning and a clear indication that metallic fabrics and loose-fitting designs will be hitting the mainstream market in the near future.
