We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: it’s Alessandro Michele’s world and we’re all just living in it. The Gucci designer has conveyed a cunning ability to implant the most impactful fashion trends of the moment, making this show one to study carefully. To present the S/S 19 collection, the fashion house relocated its runway show to Paris where it was held at the historical Théâtre Le Palace.
They may have been in Paris, but the show was ostensibly in an American mindset. It would be hard to ignore the collection’s references to iconic figures of American culture, from the Mickey Mouse handbags to the garments featuring Dolly Parton’s face on them. But the motif was conveyed in more nuanced ways as well via oversized plaid shirts, denim cutoff vests, and big cowboy hats.
As always with Gucci, there’s a lot to unpack, but simply keep reading to see which were the top 5 moments you need to know about from the show and then watch the full runway video below.
