Resort 19 Influencer Show: Gucci

Alessandro Michele’s Resort 19 showing was a full-blown spectacular with over 100 exits, posing the question: Have pre-season shows become just another RTW opportunity rather than between-season collections?

Alessandro Michele’s idiosyncratic approach to design has true seasonless appeal. Among the many looks were padded puffer jackets, animal print leggings, silky kimonos, floral coats, capes and his signature take on the Chanel-style suit. All worked in iconic print mash-ups and a palette dominated by shades of pink and green teamed with the grounding force of black.

Expect the influence of those pattern mash-ups to hit the high street with full-blown rose motifs, scarf prints, suiting checks and all-over foulards. They worked alongside glittering sequins, plush velvet and crystal trims for anything-goes evening-meets-daywear looks.

Silhouettes veered towards ruffled and tiered maxi and midi lengths, although there were some thigh-high disco-ready mini dresses and one-shouldered goddess looks. Outerwear had an easy vintage appeal with soft, unstructured shapes along with casual puffer and parka styling.

The devil is always in the detail with Michele, who accessorised every look with a battery of overscaled jewelled crosses, crystal-trimmed toques, lace gloves, classic GG-patterned totes and embellished boxy bags.

Footwear came as elevated foot-stomping Goth shoes, double-strapped Velcro sandals, ladylike Mary Janes and buttoned Edwardiana boots, all teamed with vividly coloured lace hosiery.
