Alessandro Michele’s latest Men’s and Women’s collection for Gucci revealed in the multiple influences from the 80s
Shoulder bags printed with Guccy in a font style like Sega -the entertainment and arcade game company popular in the 80s, tracksuits with graphic inserts and gowns reminiscent of ice skater outfits were studded with crystals. Sir Elton John’s stage costumes from the 70s designed by Bob Mackie, Annie Reavey and Mr Freedom inspired a special lineup including a harlequin checked jacket and a sequin detailed violet dress.
A focus on bags from the #GucciSS18 show: a graphic font inspired by that of @sega, the interactive entertainment company, vintage shapes with GG hardware and GG motif, a #GucciEltonJohn tote featuring the cover from ‘Levon / Goodbye’, a single released in 1971 by Sir @eltonjohn. #mfw #AlessandroMichele #Guccy
The #GucciSS18 show space recounts diverse inspirations and aesthetics. The setting’s captions written into the floor resemble a modern translation of an ancient map featuring Roman poet Orazio’s country home. The runway is Tiber river; while the map is juxtaposed with the layout of the Imperial Fora, dotted with classical statues from different periods and cultures. The backdrop is an early medieval structure with a double portico and the runway features three arches in Indian, Aztec and Egyptian styles. Surfaces in bubbled pvc and streetlights give a metropolitan feel. See the collection live now on Instagram Live. #AlessandroMichele #mfw
