Last year when Gucci announced that it would be giving its Creative Director position to Alessandro Michele many did not know what to make of it. But when you look at the trend of well established fashion houses like Givenchy, Saint Laurent and Balenciaga, and the successful face lifts they have received from fresh creative eyes, I knew we would be in for a treat. With a background in costume design and a mind tuned not only to detail and luxe fabrics, but to the beauty found in the environment around him, Michele has combined these attributes to bring us collections that incorporate florals, wild creatures and beautiful patterns. Did I mention he styles his own shows!
When Michele dropped his Spring/Summer 16 Collection my eyes lit up. He embroidered and bedazzled!! I must admit I was dazzled. For this look I decided to go with one of his light weight and glittery sweaters, Ace lightening bolt sneakers, Gucci specs and an oldie made newie pair of cut off Levis’ Re/Done. I hope you enjoy and be on the look out for everything Michele is doing because Gucci is once again the sh*t to rock! - xx
