Costume Loving: Florence Meets Frida

You may have seen my tweet regarding Florence Welch teaming up with Gucci, I may in my excited said the word ‘face’, and I must admit I thought it would be a campaign *well was hoping*, but it is even better the amazing Frida Giannini is creating costumes for the fiery redhead’s American summer tour.

“I was extremely flattered when I heard that Frida’s collection had been inspired in part by my performances and I was completely bowled over by her collection, the dresses seemed perfect for my shows, the colours, the shapes, the movement in the fabric,” says Florence Welch. “So it seemed natural that we work together on creating some pieces for my upcoming US tour. I’m very grateful to Frida, it’s been a wonderful experience and I can’t wait to get dressed for the stage!”

This is a preview of one the exclusive looks that Gucci is creating for her the North American leg of her band Florence and the Machine’s tour. So Dolce & Gabbana have had Kylie and Justin Bieber, and I have to admit I am excited that Gucci went with Florence as I adore her look.

I can’t wait for her to hit the stage to see the whole wardrobe. If this preview is anything to go by it is going to be one fabulous costume display, I love the plum colour, the sheer skirt, the one sleeve and most of all the floral embellishments to her collar.
