Gucci's gothic glamour gets Milan Fashion Week off to a dark start

by /

Their Milan show might have been dark, but it was far from dreary.

With the Oscars just days away, Italian powerhouse Gucci unveiled an ultra glamorous array of floor-length, billowing dresses in midnight hues.

"This is modern-day romanticism," designer Frida Giannini said. "A dramatic sensuality, a dark glamour with subtle tones of provocative intellect."



The offerings in black, forest green and plum had been designed with decadence in mind – fur, silk, velvet and leather all adorned Edwardian-esque layered ensembles.

The sultry show kicked off Milan Fashion Week, following on from the headline-grabbings antics of London.

Plum lipstick, leather capes and moody lighting all complemented the noir feel of the presentation.
