Alessandro Michele Unveils His First Collection For Gucci

As of January 21st, Tom Ford was no longer Creative Director for Gucci. Many cried, some threw tantrums, but most; were simply sad. Goodbyes are never easy, but without means to deliberately sound cheesy, when one door closes, another does indeed open. This is said to be true for Gucci’s new Creative Director, Alessandro Michele, who recently unveiled his first womenswear collection during Milan Fashion Week on Wednesday.

The collection is a vast change from what we’ve previously seen over at the iconic brand. There was an array of leather tea-length skirts, pierrot necklines, reserved ruffles, and retro florals. There was an underlined 70’s vibe throughout the entire collection, with an obvious influence of Margot Tenenbaum; beautifully portrayed my Gwyneth Paltrow. Nerdy eyeglasses were an essential accessory, as was berets and fur coats. The overall collection was as kitschy as it was unique.

It was literally the opposite of Tom Ford’s overly glamorous aesthetic, but oddly enough, a welcoming breath of fresh air.

I am a journalistic enthusiast, born and bred in Washington, D.C. When I'm not busy meticulously constructing posts, I can be found burying my head in an epic novel, cooking a delicious mess in the kitchen, scouring local thrift stores, and spending way too much time binging on Netflix (Arrested Development anyone?). I cannot live without a good playlist (Billy Holiday is preferred), working wifi (sometimes not always working), and Dunkin Donuts coffee (caramel swirl is my go-to flavor). If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to direct them to the email below. Happy Reading!
