If we’d have to judge upon the Gucci-updates on our Instagram feed the last few days a baby dragon is bound to be the coolest accessory for next year. Alessandro Michele sure knows how to pull everyone’s focus into his new collection story. Named ‘Cyborg’ this fall 2018 story was about a post human era in which we as people will be able to reproduce ourselves. And so there were models carrying their own hats and a girl with a third eye on her forehead. “We are the Dr. Frankenstein of our lives,” Michele told Vogue.com. “There’s a clinical clarity about what I am doing. I was thinking of a space that represents the creative act. I wanted to represent the lab I have in my head. It’s physical work, like a surgeon’s.”
Fashion wise the show spoke of a good game of dressing up and the cross cultural styles we’ve seen at Gucci the last few seasons. Fringed tweed jackets, shiny twenties disco dresses, folklore overcoats and luxurious red velvet dresses. Styled off with Russian babushka headscarves, lace face masks, XL earrings and nerdy glasses. And of course it wouldn’t be a Gucci show without the abundance of Gucci logo’s (mixed with some NY Yankees and LA references). A collection that was already a hype before it hit the runway. Insta girls, be ready!
