Back in February Frida Giannini revealed that her A/W 2011 collection for Gucci
had been inspired by Florence Welch
s captivating performances and Bob Richardsons photos of Angelica Huston. Now the designer has sat down to talk about exactly what it was about the flame haired singer that caught her eye.
As I was imagining this collection I was thinking of a strong and somewhat mysterious muse, Frida told Dazed Digital. Florence is that kind of woman. I met her in Los Angeles at this year's Grammys and was captivated by her presence. She has a powerful personality and an entrancing quality to her performances. She also has that confident and self assured look that goes hand in hand with the Gucci woman.
Theres no word yet whether offering up inspiration is enough to bag Florence a spot in Guccis autumn campaign, but wed love to see her decked out in the collection there are some flowing, slashed dresses
that are just crying out to be absorbed into the singers wardrobe
