Alessandro Michele has long pushed the boundaries of men’s wear. The creative director continues to display his rebellious and anti-establishment sentiments. Outrageous as they are, they prove that his creative vision for Gucci is never dull. Presenting: some of the key looks in the Gucci spring/summer 2020 collection.
For Gucci spring/summer 2020, Michele sent models down the runway in popping lime, fuchsia, orange, cyan and red. But he kept things on an even keel with muted shades. It’s almost a metaphor for life: to dare to shine bright, while remaining grounded with a semblance of normalcy. Silhouettes are more relaxed this time. Outerwear, however, retain their practical structures and fabrics for chillier days.
On this canvas of flamboyant practicality, Michele decided that accessories should take a playful turn too. Drawing ideas from the house’s archives, he embellished the looks with retro sunglasses secured by larger-than-life opera chains. He also super-sized the vintage-inspired brooches for outlandish effect. For cohesion, he integrated some fetishist elements from his women’s collection: the fan tassels are scaled down from their cat-o-nine-tails counterparts. This celebration of fun, of course, is what we have come to love about Gucci.
