In case you haven’t noticed, there’s a revolution happening over at Gucci and the genius leading the rebellion is a man who strongly believes in emotion over rationality. Since he was appointed creative director nearly a year ago, Alessandro Michele has uncovered the delightful eccentricity in the Gucci woman. And then some. She’s a nerd, she’s punk, she’s a lady, she’s multi-lingual and multi-generational, she’s smart, she’s quirky, she’s glamorous, she’s a history buff, she’s a maximalist and most importantly, she sees fashion as a form of individual expression. With this reinvented woman as his muse, it’s no wonder Alessandro has stirred up a feverishness within the industry. Since his debut last winter, we wait in giddy anticipation before each collection showing – both women’s and men’s. And in days following, we’re studying all the multifarious details and envisioning ways in which can we bring out our best Gucci woman.

I miss Tom Ford’s Gucci so much. If I didn’t know better I would think this is Anna Sui, not Gucci. And that’s not a good thing. What an inaccessible mess.
This collection looks beautiful as a fashion shows with 70 inspiration…i don’t know what happening to all the fashion houses but they loose their identity..each time they change a designer they change style..even if Gucci was always 70
…check what’s happening at Dior…it’s time to go buck to the roots and respect one’s identity….
marketing is so strong that at the end you have seen this collection and the last collection everywhere on the press and TV…
so you ask yourself if you are not influenced with so much press……
Wow, the collection looks so exciting that I cannot stop looking at the pictures, so many details to discover! I think he did a great job.
Great collection! Love the prints!
What an intricate and quirky collection!
