The look Dandy, with razor-sharp tailoring and luxe outerwear.
Key pieces The sharp-shouldered, exaggerated-lapel suit was at the heart of Gucci’s collection, as slim-waisted jackets were teamed with flared pants and layered over neat-fit knits and toning shirts and ties. Outerwear was stamped with luxurious appeal thanks to an ostrich skin trench coat, Mongolian lamb, rabbit and beaver fur coats or three-quarter jackets, while fit-and-flare reefer coats kept the mood a little more grounded. For evening, a velvet tux had a youthful elegance.
Colours Cappuccino and greige-tinted neutrals teamed with soft shell or blush pink, morphing into rich burgundy, espresso, tan and black, with accents of cornflower.
Commercial appeal The sharp tailoring was bang on trend and the luxe fabrications will deliver a much-needed point of difference.
