Our invite to the Gucci show that kicked off Milan fashion week was undoubtedly the hottest ticket of the week. Since Michele took over as creative director one year ago Gucci has become one of the most influential and trendsetting brands in the industry. An incredible accomplishment. Yet after rising to the top so quickly it’s even harder to stay there. Wednesday’s show proved Gucci is still all the rage, although perhaps Michele should be aware not to overdo his dress up game. For fall he again pulled from different eras to create the richest of looks. Seventies disco sandals and sequined dresses, eighties sunglasses and puffy shoulders in the mix with 18th century collars and 16th century bodices. An expressive mix of styles the designer referred to as “The Renaissance arrives at Studio 54.”. There was so much focus on detail it was almost too much to take in in such a short amount of showtime. The earrings, the (glittering) glasses, the turbans, the fedoras, the multi finger rings, the branded socks, the necklaces, not to mention the latest update of the highly desirable Dionysus bag. Graffiti artist Trouble Andrew created a series of G-prints that were used on ready-to-wear and accessories. All of which came together in a gorgeous fall proof palette of emerald, ruby red, soft pink and turquoise. Conclusion: fw2017 is a definite worthy successor of Gucci’s current hit collection.
