Gucci FW11 / Marc Jacobs SS11

When I saw Gucci Fall Winter 2011 collection earlier this week the first thing that popped into my head was Marc Jacob's Spring Summer 2011 collection. I quickly decided that I liked Gucci's collection better - it felt like the technicolor version of Marc Jacobs collection, and in a way it is. But now that I compare some of the looks side by side, I realize that I made my mind up too quickly. I love the luxe features of Gucci: the leather dress, the fur, the ornate floral details. There's a lot of fun to be had with heavier winter fabrics and materials. However, Marc's take, with the varied hues, some more muted than others, and mix of light, summery textures is an equally thoughtful vision.
