Gucci Spring 2016 Runway

By  |  0 Comments

Alessandro Michele has firmly established himself as the king of quirk at Gucci. While the industry was collectively unsure about his appointment, Michele’s collections have established a firm point of view with an eye on a younger clientele with a penchant for vintage-inspired duds and a luxury price tag. Michele’s “chic nerd” was back in full effect, with oversized granny glasses, ruffled tops, and even nude nylon knee-high stockings. But those stockings were accompanied by a stellar three-quarter sleeved coat with mink cuffs and a ruby red coat with a rich, silver-bee pattern.

When these clothes are hanging on the racks in stores come spring, there will be plenty to love, even for Gucci’s less eccentric clientele. Such as? A lipstick-red satin skirt with a high slit, a Chinese floral print and a soft pink skirt lining, a beautiful candy colored pink chiffon ruffle dress, a navy leather tie waist jacket with gold circular grommets, and Gucci G’s for a belt buckle, which were all incredibly chic. Other must-haves: the accessories! Those platform T-strap pumps we imagine will be flying out of stores, and there were plenty more slip-on loafers. Fur versions of Michele’s take on the classic Gucci loafer were spotted all over New York Fashion Week. Plus, the simple square-shaped bags in black and red embossed with “Gucci” was a great way to over-brand the bag and still make it look cool and covetable. Michele is certainly giving the Gucci house major buzz—perhaps it’s no coincidence then that bees have decorated everything from coats to bags to store windows.
