This week, Alessandro Michele presented the 100th Anniversary Collection for Gucci. The most remarkable elements were the “hacking collection” with Balenciaga and the Tom Ford revamp. You can see the runway show for yourself here. Of course, there was the Alessandro Michele twist that always makes me think of an off-duty circus troupe hitting the Vegas strip.
The show was exciting, even as viewed on YouTube. The situation is that once you start pulling the pieces apart there isn’t that much newness. There isn’t very much to purchase. Seems like a bag with a bamboo top handle might make a strong appearance for the Fall but is that really exciting? I suppose it’s more supportive of my personal fashion philosophy to buy things I love and to hold on. They will always come back. Even if you’re personal style is circus troupe in Vegas it’s nice to experience some exciting fashion options.
