Pre-Fall 18 Influencer Show: Gucci

Alessandro Michele’s vision for Gucci knows no bounds. His latest pre-season offering encapsulated everything from streetwise sportswear and red-carpet gowns to ladylike-dressing and slick tailoring.

There was a new, casual youthfulness in the sports-infused silhouettes. The glitzy razzle-dazzle was complemented with tough hiking boots and New York Yankees baseball caps, courtesy of Michele’s latest collaboration with MLB (Major League Baseball). 

The message was in the mix, and all the rules were broken. Think fringed bomber jackets layered over flouncy dresses, floral tracksuits, padded puffas, and printed leggings teamed with oversized, slouchy cardigans – contrasted with sharply tailored pantsuits and demure pleated midi skirts.

There was a relaxed ease in the soft cardigan jackets and kimonos, perfect to partner with full-legged track pants, or the influential over-the-knee slouchy logo-patterned boots.

The collection was an explosion of print and pattern, from archive house florals to pop-art chevrons, giant GG logos and signature striped braided trims. Colour blocking added another graphic twist, while Lurex and lamé, plush velvets, swishing silks and gilded brocades upped the luxe-touch ante in a palette of cobalt, bubblegum, emerald and poppy.

Michele’s quirky styling has been one of the biggest influences on the high street in recent seasons, and we can expect to see the impact of his over-the-top sportswear pieces hitting the junior market any day soon, giving casualwear a fresh, glamorous slant.
