By the end of the 1990s, the brand moved towards a flashier, logodriven aesthetic with a departure from the original stylistic identity. The brand had abandoned its understated ethos and ventured into more trenddriven fashion territory.
In 2001, Gucci Group acquired a controlling stake in the label and appointed Tomas Maier, a German designe (resumes include Sonia Rykiel and Hermes), as a creative director. He brought the brand back to a more understated and classical look. Lines are simple and clean, with ladylike silhouettes and GrecoRoman inspired draping and folding predominating. The color palette use largely lighttone neutrals and faded colors to build understated elegance look.
