Gucci Spring Summer Vacation Lookbook
Whether you are sunbathing in the Capri, Italy or Santorini islands of Greece, Gucci's Spring Summer 2009 runway apparel and accessories make the perfect inspiration for the perfect tropical paradise getaway.
From the tropical palm tree and sunset prints to chunky, peep-toe leather strappy platform sandals, the collection is full of dashing menswear inspired suits in bold and bright blue and red.
Perforated patterned panama straw hats with fine grosgrain ribbons, roomy leather fringed hobo bags, exotic python skin trimmed accessories, short silk dresses, khaki green utility rompers with cargo pockets and seventies style oversized, tinted sunglasses are all the beautiful classics that Frida Giannini had brought back to style on the runway during her time with Gucci.
Vacation style tip: Keep those hemlines short and pack on the platforms or high heels to elongate legs and elevate the glamour factor.
Summer beauty tip: Try a lighter shade of turquoise blue eyeshadow and heap on the eyeliner and mascara for that dramatic seaside babe look.
Perfect vacation accessory: Ever wondered where backpacks fit in in your daily fashion wear? For a jazzed-up luxurious look, pair a python and leather backpack from Gucci with your cotton explorer outfit.
Style tip: Gold accessories just like the sparkle of warm, bright sunshine are a summer staple to pair with tropical and floral prints - be it bikinis or shirt dresses.
Style tip: Pair python jackets and bags with chino pants and dresses for that laidback-luxe look. Most importantly, never leave for your holiday without a good sun hat.
