911! Gucci Pre-Fall is Here and There is Something For Everyone

Who is crazy

12.13.16

I am consistently impressed by how outlandish Gucci’s collections have become under the stewardship of creative director Alessandro Michele. To be clear, they are not dramatic for drama’s sake. On the contrary, I genuinely believe that Michele just sees the world through an incredible number of layers and multiple fabrics that could be worn as easily as hats or, I don’t know, shoes. And what’s more? It doesn’t get old! Sure, maybe you don’t want to dress like a grandmother who lives in the attic every single day of every single week (but why?), but there is something to be said, really, for how uplifting looking at new Gucci clothes can be for your mood. How fresh and novel and exciting they feel even though, frankly, they’re always the same, just turned up a notch every now and then. It is a testament to a new reality pill that fashion is learning how to swallow: every season does not have to reinvent itself. If you are not finished with a concept, that’s okay. Work, meditate, harp on it — play, grow, go with it — until you’re done.

And now for the fun stuff! Look at those damn clothes. Read those damn captions. Pour yourself a glass of eggnog and enjoy. Bless Gucci.

    Mind explosion! The boots! The tights! The purses worn as necklaces! Styling is ON POINT. It’s amazing how something so simple like red or double GG tights changes the accessories game.
