After he debuted his radically different vision for the brand, 12 months at Gucci seem to be perfect wonderland for Alessandro Michele.To exotic emperors and beautiful peregrine princesses. Eccentric juxtapositions and everything is oooooooh so fresh. This is what Alessandro Michele had done with Gucci. With the 1970s (signature) via the 1570s. Studio 54 with the Renaissance. Catherine de Medici meets Bianca Jagger? It’s a mad mad mix at Gucci, a glorious mash up of histories and loves. All the quirky models walked with balloon sleeves long dress with sequins and big pussy bow blouson and candy-like tulles dress. Ruffles were everywhere including necklines and shoulders and full bloomed florals burst from the throats of some looks. Some are in banded white sporty old school socks and tweeds wandered past the screened catwalk, followed by another in a mint green 1970s suit and hat with many different kinds; veiled pillbox hat, beanie and c15-liked hat. Michele has added colour and pattern but kept the shapes essentially classic but extravagant accessories and decorative botanical embroideries and trompe l’oeil sequinned collars on dressed and capes. Snake skin coat and they just wore everything with pearls.The handbag-to-shoulder bag of choice comes in accordion style with the classic Gucci bamboo handle bag. Concluded this is the Renaissance x Sport wear x Graffiti cool kids style, seen from collaboration with, the Brooklyn-based skateboarder-turned-artist Trevor Andrew aka #GucciGhost who first came up with his artistic as a Gucci-obsessed teenager who sprayed Gucci logo on everywhere. So now it’s time spray painting of the words ‘REAL’ and ‘GG’ on bags and the backs of fur coats and leather jackets. Luxury street vibes.
Petra Collins, a Canadian and NYC base feminist artist walked in a blood red and gold antique flower jacquard pattern defines suit.With another’s skirt and jacket trimmed with pink silk bows on the sleeves. Delicately made a heron and black serpent embroidery and everything! Especially the totally pink fur coat look all the same colour from head to toe made me faint in love. This is the joyous blasts of colour which is only Alessandro Michele can do with his magic!
