Gucci’s Spring/Summer ’09 “Exotica” show delivered preppy tailored suits with wild tropical prints–fit-for-the-beach bohemian. The signature Frida pant is set to be a big seller and we love how designer Frida Giannini took her sophisticated businesslike suiting out of state and to the shore. To beach-up the preppy pieces, mix in a Cuban-styled straw fedora hat, a striped scarf and boho charm necklaces with shell-inspired accents. Yep, it’s easy breezy.
