At this point, the smiley with the little hearts eyes would be appropriate! No, we did not hit Ryan Gosling or ordered the new Chanel Bag . We looked at “just” the 120 looks (the highest in a collection so far) by Gucci designer Alessandro Michele yesterday in Milan.
Ever since the Italians designed the luxury label, each collection feels a bit like “The Royal Tenenbaums” looking at LSD. But since then in the fashion world also a Gucci hype has broken out unparalleled. Michele almost single-handedly pushed aside minimalism and brought back the opulence.
His Gucci fall-winter collection ran under the motto “The Alchemist’s Garden – An Anti-modern Laboratory” (The Alchemist’s Garden – An Anti-Modern Laboratory). At the same time Michele asked on the cool, designed by graffiti artist Coco Capitan invitation (in the form of a vinyl record): “What are we gonna do with all that future?” (What do we do with so much future?).
And indeed, Gucci brought some fashion trends from the moth-crates: 80s blazer with glitter leggings, ruched midi dresses in the style of the 1940s, terry headbands with gucci print (Flashback in the late 70’s as tennis was super hot), Knicker-Bocker Pants from the 20’s, punk and rock elements – you name it!
All these fashion elements were mixed by alchemist Michele into a colorful fashion circus. Looking away impossible! We do not want to. Because we can not wait to wear the Gucci pieces (or a Zara version of it) soon.
