With Gucci, you know you can expect something sexy and extremely attention-seeking, and since sheers and netting seem to be the big trend for spring (Ugh.), something glittery and see-through was bound to walk down that runway. The colors are bright and metal-tinged, the shapes are loose and low-slung, in a ’70s-by-way-0f-the-’20s kind of way, and perhaps oddest of all, there’s an infusion of ’80s-style meshwear. It comes off a little scattered, to be honest. We do love the colors and prints, though. The shapes have a languid sexiness to them, but we would have liked seeing more variation in the silhouettes. And the sheer trend just went to DEFCON One, with a succession of gowns that are all but unwearable in their present state, except by the most adventurous of women.
