If only we could step inside and feel the vibe, hear the music and see everyone’s outfits. Le Palace in Paris, a 70s/80s infamous nightclub in Montmartre where Mick Jagger, Karl Lagerfeld and Andy Warhol used to come, was the source of inspiration for Alessandro Michele’s SS2019 collection. And by the looks of tonight it was a club like no others… The dresscode was a perfect mix of party and come as you are. As all models were dressed quite bizarrely, yet acted most careless. They rocked their lurex dresses, harlequin checks pants, strawberry prints, leather suits, velvet jackets and faux fur coats like it was nobody’s business. Gucci’s GG here and there as well as the brand’s checked print. Ruffles de luxe (Ellia Sophia) and the most pronounced shoulders (Katea Gramma). Sunglasses were larger than life (Unia Pakhomova) – a few nerdy glasses here and there too, velvet hats came in extremely thick varations (Petra Koubkova). Chunky necklaces and bracelets, little Swarovski crowns and a few quite sexual accessories (as seen on Paul Hendrik Piho) in the mix. No matter their festive outings models appeared unimpressed/unbothered (or just worn out and numb from all the partying?). Halfway the show Jane Birkin sang us all a song. “Baby Alone in Babylone”, from the namesake album she released in 1983, and it took us all back to the eighties. Traveling back in time might still not be an option Michele brought us close to what it must have felt like back in the days. The ghosts of stars of Le Palace resurrected with just a hint of fantasy, sex. And it made watching a Gucci show in Paris feel oh so natural.
