Designer Retrospective: Gucci’s Creative Director Frida Giannini

Take a Walk Down Memory Lane with One of Gucci’s Top Influencers.

Frida Giannini is stepping down from her post as Creative Director of Gucci in February 2015. Naturally, this news leaves us pondering who will take her place; Frida’s tenure of nearly ten years had a great influence over the Gucci brand. It will be hard to imagine anyone else in her place. Now, with her impending departure, let’s all take a look at some of her best styles currently at Saks.

Saks Visits The Kooples Paris HQ

See Outtakes From the In-House Shoot with Danish Model Emma Oak at The Place Vendome HQ During Paris Fashion Week.

It’s not every day Saks makes it over to France, so this past Paris Fashion Week, we made sure to stop by and say hello to a few brands that we are welcoming through our doors this season. One line that we’re particularly excited to welcome to Saks is The Kooples.

The Kooples have already taken Europe by storm, but their American takeover has only just begun. The essence of the inherently cool brand is equal parts Parisian chic and London’s Savile Row, in other words, modern cool clothes, tailored to perfection.

The Kooples made a splash with their Couples campaign, where they took real-life couples, outfitted them in The Kooples essentials and snapped their high-fashion and intimate moments. It made for an arresting series that marked the brand as a maker of fresh, stylish clothes, but one that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

Almost Time for an In-House Shoot!

While on our visit to The Kooples headquarters at Place Vendôme in Paris, the brand team was hard at work (well, not too hard at work, since they were having a pretty great time) shooting a few fun pictures with Danish beauty Emma Oak.

Danish Model Emma Oak Lets Loose on Set Wearing the Zebra Jacquard Blazer and Leather Skinny Ankle Jeans

Emma is a quintessential The Kooples girl. Cool to the core, free-spirited and funky as all get-out. She looked like a little kid, getting outfitted in all these amazing pieces that only helped to augment her naturally saucy attitude. Nothing like a beautiful model with an infectious good attitude on set.

Dress like the cool kids do in The Kooples. Available online and at Saks New York, Beverly Hills, Bal Harbour, Houston and South Coast Plaza.
