For Fall/Winter 2016, Alessandro Michele took the new Gucci on a walk through the park of romantic anarchism and repressive history, influenced by the liberating yet destructive nature of poetry. The ominously red show space serves as a backdrop for loose silhouettes filled with movement and refinement, and serves as a reflection for the numerous animalistic and Chinese references seen throughout.
Neckties, bows and chokers accentuates the Collection's sense of emancipation, while embellishments and Chinese-inspired tassels further explore Michele's investigation of mixing the past with the present. Unsurprisingly for the new Gucci, this Collection is not dominated by the usual black or navy that is common for FW, but is instead an assembly of bright and retro silks, sheer and velvet, coming together as reinterpretations of past luxury and tradition. Coats and jackets are emblazoned with flowers, koi and dragons, with an instantly iconic appearance of Snoopy splashed on jumpers and tees.
With FW16, Michele continues to breathe mystery and wonder into the revival of Gucci.
