    It's very much much deserved. The award is "Designer of the Year", not "Lifetime Achievement", and in this year he was the most relevant name in the industry. Simple. I bet the CFDA Awards were thinking on him too.

    Congrats Alessandro!

    Congrats to him! It was his year so it's a great and natural choice.
    It's quite funny to read The Telegraph qualified Frida's Gucci as dated. It was boring sometimes and not groundbreaking but certainly not dated. So hypocritical!

    It may look premature but i can't think of anyone else this year.
    I was thinking about the fact that Hedi Slimane never won an international designer award. In 2013, i felt like he deserved it.

    It would be good if he gets his prize from Tom Ford.

    there's this short film by Gia Coppola in collaboration with Gucci at Vogue's youtube channel. The clothes look soooo pretty, from the suits to the more theatrical pieces.. they were shot beautifully, and even outside of the context, it just made me appreciate his presence more, the ideas are nothing new but I like this type of dream-like aesthetic and drama in clothes in a time where it's all either trying too hard to be taken seriously or too fast and changeable each season..

    Surely!
    Everybody still going crazy about Michele's Gucci .He is nominated again in one or two categories of Fashion Awards 2016
    (Sincerely, Gucci is an addiction, one time you bought it you are done, you will buy again and again, it looks not qurky , every single item is perfect. The waiting times in online retailers are monthes, Neiman Marcus pre-order and shippment 3.7.2017. I ask myself, are they mean July or March :woot:) )

    Thank you Benn98 for sharing this article, ( i readed it before but read it with pleasure one more time)
    Steve Dool wrote really good article , and yes, Ana Andjelic nailed it, : "When consumers are tired of it, that's going to be the end. When editors are tired, who gives a ****?"

    Gucci seems to be repetitive but there are always new designs inside every collection, always one or more new items which start to be a hit and #musthave. The customers loves it. Here to tell that VIPs , journalists and bloggers loves Gucci too.
    And, yes, about editorials, i saw a lot of Gucci , for example in german Vogue in summer monthes.
    I love Michele's Gucci from first runway look Alessandro sent to runway in Milan in 2015.

    I have to say, the comments on the first page predicting that he wouldn't last very long are quite amusing. It just goes to show that you can never predict these things.

    Laugh at all of them, but I got JW and Hedi stabbing on my back so it doesn't help.

    Have Gucci finally got a new logo?
    The latest newsletter and Instagram post would suggest so.

    "On the other hand, when I look at the people who try to copy me just to create confusion about what’s real and what’s fake, I think it’s a shame because, in a way, it’s like they’re destroying my work. If you try to make the same thing without a soul, it will be trashy and ugly. I’m always trying in a very delicate way to put together things that are dirty with things that are completely clean, things from the bourgeois and things that belong to the ghetto, things that are completely broken with things that are well done. "
