We entered the showroom, and it was an apparent departure from Alessandro Michele‘s infamously dark, opulent and theatrical setting. It seemed like we found ourselves in a theatre of another kind when we stepped foot into the Gucci Hub – an operating theatre. Stark turquoise floors and walls, together with plastic seats reminiscent of a hospital scene made the runway backdrop for Gucci’s highly-anticipated fall/winter 2018 show. What cemented Michele’s “Cyborg” theme for the show were the operating tables that sat in the centre of the runway, complete with operating lights. We knew we were in for a ride.
Our invites counted down till 3pm (10pm SGT) on 21st February 2018, beeping simultaneously to signal the beginning of the show. From the first look to the last, everyone was in awe of the designs and details that Michele sent down the runway for the season. The men’s looks in particular were flamboyant, unconventional and refreshing – we spotted hot shorts, robust prints, and sparkly furnishings. The looks were not unfamiliar with what he’s sent before, but always a good reminder on how one should embrace these fantastic pieces to add wonder to your wardrobe every time you put them on.
We shortlisted some of our favourite men’s looks spotted on Gucci’s fall/winter 2018 show that just passed, narrowing it down to the looks that made us steal second glances for all the right reasons. Scroll through the gallery to view our picks.
