What could be a better start for Milan as a Gucci show? – was my first thought, than it changed. We have known for a while, the basically unnown Alessandro Michele took in and simply conquered the world with his granny chic, extremly and beautifully detailed, sometimes on the edge of pure kitsch creations. There’s no denying, you either love it or hate it and most of the fashionistas seemed to love the new shiny toys.
This show wasn’t else either. At this point we know what we can expect from Michele and Gucci, ok maybe not this big womb like pink runway, it was a bit unexpected and probably a not the best idea; I can’t even remember when I’ve seen such bad quality pictures from runways, not to mention the growing headache by just looking at it.
Anyway, if you’re here to get true Alessandro, you won’t dissapoint. Embrodiered and sequined gowns, ruffles and frills, printed tees, floral motives, odd big framed sunnies and headscarves, strong colors like the truest pink, red, blue and purple, green, you have everything from him. Again.
Because on the other hand, if you wanted some new iventions and ideas, this is not the right place for you. Actually I’m guilty(?) too, I wanted a bit more at this point, but when your sytle is so defined and unique as Alessandro’s, the question is given; what could be the next fresh thing to give the easily got bored fashionistas, preserving what makes these shows also unique and true? What indeed? As a start a different runway maybe?
But for his defend, I quite liked the last Cruise collection, and he’s a creative man, so there’s hope I guess. 🙂
What about you? Did you get what you wanted?
