Gucci - Gucci open Milan Fashion Week

Gucci opened Milan Fashion Week with an eye-catching Japanese-inspired collection yesterday (19.09.12).

The Italian company showcased a line of pyjama suits, which are designed to be used for evening wear, containing Japanese-style wallpaper and snakeskin patterns, bell sleeves and ruffled necklines as part of their spring/summer 2013 collection.

Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini's latest ''aristocratic'' range also featured dresses in striking pink, yellow and blue colours, which are designed to give off a ''strong allure''.

She explained: ''These are portraits of aristocratic women, evoking a strong allure with a clean, precise, defined aesthetic.''

Alberta Ferretti also showcased its latest spring/summer 2013 designs on the catwalk with an array of floor-length nude, blue and turquoise summer gowns as well as simple black and white evening wear dresses.

Before the show Alberta said the intention of the dainty dress designs was to ''give an impression of floating''.

She explained: ''It's a summer dream. It's a collection for the woman who craves liberty, movement and light. The silhouette is simple but the embroidery creates a luminous glow and the layering gives an impression of floating.''

Prada will strut its stuff on the runway later today (20.09.12), with Versace, Moschino and Etro due to showcase its latest designs on Friday (21.09.12).
