The originality of Gucci is back. Anchored in Italian tradition and lauding all the greatness of Gucci fashion, Alessandro Michele is unleashing his creativity through a Fall/Winter 2017-2018 line that brings men and women together for the first time with cinematographic airs.
The label’s creative director continue to enrich his romantic partition with retro accents, but this time, it’s with a bucolic backdrop that Alessandro Michele has composed a postmodern line where references taken from a variety of eras are zoomed in on. By inaugurating Milan Fashion Week, he brought the city even further into the hallowed inner sanctum of the fashion universe with something that was aloof, dreamy, and immeasurably alluring.
Among the profusion of looks that went down the runway, look #5 is particularly noteworthy. By apposing the mythic flora motif onto a dreamy watercolor suit, Alessandro Michele mixes the brand’s heritage with the casualness of the millennial generation. With the hand of an alchemist, transforming the beautiful and the strange into clothing whose pragmatism is as sublime as it is easy, this Fall/Winter 2017 collection becomes a fanciful one indeed.
