The Gucci Women Prefall 2015 Collection features designs with sleek lines mixed with stunning seventies-inspired geometric prints. Styles alternate between masculine tailoring and knee-length dresses inspired from the chemisier.

There’s quite a bit of boyish glamour in Gucci Women’s Pre-Fall 2015 Collection. Fitting suits and outerwear are in tweed, herringbone, and geometric jacquards. Colourful trim and embroideries define pure lines on the coats and jackets. Blazers are sharp and smart and made from fabrics like wool mélange. In pants, women can choose between the low-waisted, cuffed short trouser in silk-wool, the flannel oversized pant, corduroy or flannel flares, and tapered pants. The Black denim this season has a lived-in look enriched with black-on-black embroideries. Elsewhere, embroideries subtly cover Nordic patterns on knitwear woven in mohair, merino, and alpaca.

Silk is the starting point for new dresses in Gucci Women’s Pre-Fall 2015 Collection. The knee-length designs are inspired by the chemisier. There’s a mix of dresses with defined waistlines, puffed sleeves, and fluid skirts and also clean, jacquard mini-dresses. There’s a leather dress that should turns heads at most dos. Its snap closures complete a robe-inspired design while studs and embroidery outline a crew-neck dress.

Gucci Women’s Pre-Fall 2015 Collection also features outfits embellished with fur. There’s the woven goat jacket, shearling outerwear with Mongolian lamb on the neckline, and patchwork jackets in fox.

Opulent and elegant evening wear includes the printed gown, tailleur, mixed and matched separates, cocktail dresses; embroideries, furs with inlay workings and mini-vests.

The colour palette of Gucci Women’s Pre-Fall 2015 Collection is eclectic and nuanced revealing warm shades of brick red, soft burgundy, apricot, dark orange,  hints of pink, along with cooler tones such as slate, dusty blue, and ivy green, and neutrals like charcoal, black, and camel.

Complimenting the season’s sleek sharpness, the statement accessories have a strong, contemporary allure. Chain-style bags in shiny brushed calfskin, exotic skins or suede covered with studs feature Gucci’s interlocking signature as a closure. Striking lace-up shoes feature pointed toes and brogue workings on both stilettos and flats – in contrasting colours of python or leather. Also in the collection are suede and python stiletto sandals.
