It's not because our feet hurt and we just want to get back to the hotel. It's not even because we've got to scoot to the Tod's private dinner to see Gwyneth Paltrow's new film (more of that later). But it's just because we thought this morning you might be a little fashion-ed out and want a simple, most digestible review of Gucci S/S '09 collection that Frida Giannini showed yesterday. Here's the low-down.
The Mood: Rock Chic Hits The Tropics
Front Row Highlights: Rihanna (who looked amazingly beautiful up close) and, proving her fashion A-list status, Roisin Murphy
Slouchy trousers and skinny jackets in tropical colours
Shrunken biker jackets in super soft reptile skins.
Utility pants and parkas fully loaded with metal hardware
Sinuous gowns in floor length jerseys and chiffons
Must Have Accessories:
The hobo bag re-invented: soft and supersized
Chunky chain link bracelets
Lapis and jade pendants
The straw trilby.
