Golden Gucci Resort 2014 Campaign

Gucci Resort 01

It feels like only a few weeks ago I was browsing through the countless amounts of Fall/Winter 2013 campaigns but time has passed far too quickly this year and bam we are being bombarded left, right and centre with 2014 campaigns!Gucci Resort 02Gucci Resort 03

Gucci has model Andrea Diaconu, who stands out for her poise, for the new Resort 2014 campaigns, the resort campaign is true elegance with golden skin reflective of the beautiful backdrop of the reddish-gold sunset. The pictures have a distinctive feel that they could be quite vintage, but they also bring some modern feeling to them too. I am still not loving slicked back hairstyles, especially with such feminine designs but it seems like they are here to stay for a while. Gucci Resort 04

Everything about the clothing pieces to the pair of gold ankle straps and the metallic clutch in silver translate to luxury and high style, enforcing Gucci is a true Italian brand.

Do you love it too?
