GUCCI RESORT 2016
A modern, colorful and cool nerd attitude
Gucci’s Alessandro Michele landed in New York to present his new cruise collection after becoming the house’s Creative Director in January. In his second women’s effort, the designer went from freak to chic, unleashing a highly-decorative collection that vibrated with eccentricity and diversity, infused with a strong vintage feel.
Michele worked an explosion of color, liberally mixing yellow, rose, turquoise, fuchsia and royal blue, creating a spate of patterns, geometric and girly, brash or subtle. Stripes, florals, dragonflies, chevrons, zig-zags and checks created a high-impact medley interpreted with bold precision and fluttering charm. The highlights included frilly shirtdresses, chic pleated skirts, ruffled and embroidered gowns tapped into the house’s codes with a geeky attitude that is irresistibly modern.
