Show Report: Gucci Spring/Summer 2012

Gucci opted for a refined take on the tribal look for spring/summer 2012; the collection felt poised and elegant with luxe fabrics, clashing animal prints and plenty of golden embellishment. A classic colour palette of black, green and ivory invigorated simple straight-leg evening trousers, cropped tailored jackets and sleek V-neck camisoles. Evening dresses diverted from the theme, taking inspiration from 1920s flappers: gold Art Deco print was emblazoned onto black backdrops and there were dropped waists, fringing, and feather boa accessories.
