    Well, this will be fun to watch. Can’t wait for another yet dramatic turn.

    Did you not remember he took over the collection a week ago?
    Let's pretend he did come up with more than 180 pieces in a week, isn't it an amazing talent?:rolleyes:
    Don't be a ridiculous reddit user to blame everything on him. And Charles Manson thing, are you a child? I'm quite mad about it.

    Critics reported that it was the official statement from within the house, but most of them aren't believing it.

    Really excited for this! This guy got my support, he has the attitude that Gucci is in need right now. The mens show step in the right direction. Hope that with everything settled now he can develop and push the brand to a new era.

    Hey, take it easy! He looks a lot like Charles Manson (just his look). I am not saying he is a psycho-killer...although a psycho-killer look could be a more interesting/fresh concept for a collection, than what he did for his first collection at Gucci...

    Very interesting that they went through with this, considering his radical collection for the house.

    I think its right for gucci to be a bit in bad taste. I mean that's what it is right? What Tom Ford did was bad taste, what Frida did was bad taste. Sometimes bad taste can be quite lovely and seductive. This is for me another version of bad taste.

    I think in this short menswear collection he's shown a very different version of sex, which is in line with the house, which can be boiled down to sex, seduction, attraction and rather flat luxury. Of course the house has its subtleties, but the essence is mostly that. He has shown a different version of it.

    also do people actually buy the pret a porter?

    Well wasn't that the point? To get people to buy the clothes? The accessories sales aren't so bad but they want the clothes to sell, and that's why they fired frida. They're trying to make themselves relevant again

    Well they did confirm that Fall/Winter 2015 was gonna be Frida's last womenswear show, I know the menswear show was scrapped but I don't think they did the same with women's.

    ^Ah, thanks! Curious for the FW15.16 show and if Alessandro is there when Frida actually designed it.

    I'm lowering my expectations immensely just so I don't have a breakdown later.

    Based on how they've treated Tom Ford and Frida this guy is in for a long and stressful road if he lasts.

    But given the fame and possibly economic gains, I am sure he wouldn't turn it down even if he witnessed it first hand. Gucci is simply too good a platform for anyone.
    This guy has after all worked with both his predecessors.
