PERHAPS GIGI WOKE UP LATE AND DIDN'T FEEL LIKE RUNNING ON HER HEELS TO ATTEND THE NEW YORK SCHOOL OF LIFE. IT'S CERTAIN THAT HER ABSENCE WON'T GO UNNOTICED, BE IT IN CLASS STUDYING CRIMINAL PSYCHOLOGY OR AS A MODEL WHO GREW UP IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA. HER PARENTS MIGHT HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH HER ABILITY TO BE DOWN TO EARTH AND A MUSE IN HER OWN WAY, HAVING A SWEATER MOMENT FOR GREY.

This pre-fall 2014 look by GUCCI, an update of the school uniform, consists of a camel hair double-breasted coat, worn over a knitted cashmere sweater and a chambray shirt with a tone-on-tone leopard motif. The WOUTERS & HENDRIX gold-plated stack rings, plain or adorned by pearls, are worn throughout the editorial.

Shades of pink, from pale to fluorescent, run through a hand-knitted wool sweater, played up by a leather mini-skirt and satin pumps set with heels of rugged hardware. All comes from the MIU MIU collection.

A pink wool and cashmere oversized sweater swallows up a multicolor cotton mini-dress printed with the “Patchwork” motif, all by FENDI. The look is styled with gold cuffs adorned in iolite and pearls, by AESA.

The deckhand knitted jumper by KAREN WALKER is lined with a N°21 collared cotton shirt in olive green. The gold ring with pyrites is by PASCALE MONVOISIN.

A cobalt blue and cocoa brown striped sweater encloses the softest cerulean shirt, both by WOOLRICH JOHN RICH & BROS. The N°21 skirt flares in sunrise pink and avid florals. Setting the tone of the look are a gold-plated bracelet with onyx and sunstone by WOUTERS & HENDRIX, a brass bracelet in tones of black and bronze by IOSSELLIANI and two rings, adorned by pyrite, from PASCALE MONVOISIN. The formality of leather lace-ups by SANTONI are more appropriate for cycling than heels.

A crew-neck duvet jacket by HERNO, softened further by a floral motif, holds down the blooming organza of a pale pink dress by N°21.

The braided-wool turtleneck in sapphire blue, against the mustard of the pleated silk faille skirt, reminds Gigi to water the sunflowers, both by APIECE APART. The pair of gold and silver rings with pyrites are by PASCALE MONVOISIN.

Sophistication becomes effortless with a luscious silk blouse closed by a ribbon and adorned by lace details, thrown over casual drawstring wool trousers, both by KITON. The gold and silver rings on the left hand are by PASCALE MONVOISIN.
