Gucci’s Spring/Summer 2014 oozed with sex appeal. Creative Director Frida Giannini sent practically every look down the runway with unpadded triangle bras that peeked out from underneath the clothes with additional bits of the innerwear being criss-crossed around the torso.

The SS14 collection reminded me more of luxe sportswear (which the American designers like Michael Kors, are known for) with laser-cut suede mesh tees, dressing gown robe-esque pieces, and a whole lot of jumpsuits which were either black, printed, or with metallic lurex detailing and design. That said, any Gucci runway show is never without opulence and decadence, and for SS14, this was reflected in the scarf-motif pieces, which were actually the Art Noveau illustrations of Russian-born French Art Deco artist, Erté that were paired with Gladiator heels.

As with the current Bamboo Confidential campaign, the bags that were sent down the runway were laidback reinterpretations of the iconic Bamboo collection. Called the burnished Bamboo, the SS14 collection comprises the shopper, small shoulder bag and the maxi clutch in materials such as suede, leather, and exotic skins. The one thing they all had one thing in common? Extra-long fringe that was sometimes, even longer than the actual bag itself.
