Fashion editors and stylists took note after Natasha Poly walked down the runway in the bondaged masterpiece that quite possibly defined Frida Giannini‘s Spring 2010 collection for Gucci. But in a collection full of architectural masterpieces and playful ikat print frocks, can’t more of the collection be shown?
Phyllis Posnick styled Daria Werbowy in Vogue‘s January 2010 “Go West” spread, shot by Patrick Demarchelier. The white cotton band dress, photographed beautifully as Werbowy stands tip-toed in a yoga pose, displaying the incredible use of negative and positive space on the upper bodice of the dress.
This happened in January 2008 with Jennifer Connelly’s Balenciaga dress; the dress worn in all the advertisements and was so beautifully wore on multiple occasions by some of Hollywood’s most influential tastemakers.
But with a collection as unique and eclectic as Gucci’s was, why settle on this one dress? Why is no one showing the orange, gray, and white ikat print jacket Anja Rubik walked in? Let’s put Natalia Vodianova in black bondage gown Lily Donaldson wore, or do a sports inspired spread with some of the fabulous mesh, athletic looking jackets and leggings?
Wth so many exciting things having walked down Gucci’s runway catwalk, why should editors and stylists limit themselves to this one white dress? Spring is just around the corner. We need some inspiration.
