Alessando Michele’s vision for Gucci in 2017 stays thoroughly rooted in fantasy, not unlike what Alice in Wonderland might look like if it existed in current times. Even the loobook images included a flowered, wallpaper-esque border heightening the celebration of all things ornate, intricate and detailed. And lord knows these days we could use the relief from real life, which since the election feels akin to a never ending eye sore.
Literally there is every fabric and pattern combination you can imagine, all of which manage to play together beautifully despite their obvious differences.
Some of the things that pop out for this collection are the everything Gucci logo tights and mushroom leggings, the statement-making trapezoid-shaped bags, and the utterly amazing jacquard boots. Keep an eye on which celebrity is spotted in either the tights or boots first for whomever she might be should be looked upon as the current ruler of Michele’s magnificent court.
