I don't why there are only 21 looks on vogue.com
I saw live stream on gucci.com and i love it as always.
But, sincerely,i prefer Michele's Summer 2018 and Pre-Fall 18 collection.
The show could be more "show", similar his f/w 17 and s/s 18.
But i still in love with Michele's Gucci.
What’s the point of these elaborate and undeniably impactful presentations / sets if the clothes are always the same blob of quirky vintagey kitschy crap repeated x 100 collection after collection?
And there’s no relation between the set (here, the medical setting really caught my attention and interest) and the clothes. Not to mention the gimmicky ‘severed’ heads and random props here and there. Again, no correlation to the clothes. I’m tired.
Trainwreck. This collection showed that Alessandro is not that talented. I liked his vision for Gucci. It was vibrant, fresh and exciting. His early shows were amazing. Maybe because everything was toned down ? Sadly after some time he started doing those messy and gimmicky collections.. If u take all prints you see how boring the clothing is. Construction and tailoring is not interesting at all. All he does is throwing everything that came to his mind . You wont agree but for me Frida was much better. She explored something new in every collection. She used various techniques and tailoring was excellent. This looks like really expensive Moschino. I am so disappointed. Great scenography and music wasted for sh#t. Glitter nipple covers - really?
Great job to the set designer for bringing us something fresh every season!
My first impression was that he's running out of ideas. I thought his last collection was different good but seeing this now, I can't help but think that he is a one-trick pony.
Some of the clothes taken apart are really good but others are just hideous and everything is just soooo overwrought and tacky. Overall this was just the usual train wreck, there is no evolution in his designs nor any clarity. This show made no sense, models were carrying severed heads and baby dragons? It was a cringe worthy show. I doubt Gucci will let AM go anytime soon , especially now the company is making 6 billion Euros. He truly is a one trick pony.
Hideous, nightmare, trainwreck, fashion is dead, fire him, bring Frida back, etc.
But seriously, since it feels the same as last collection (and I do wonder how long this whole thrift-shop-gizmo schtick is going to last), I'm going to say the same thing I did then: I really wish he hired a new stylist. It's too much, and there are some really beautiful pieces here drowned out by all the noise. I love his atmospheric touches, too. Both the set and the props the models used were absolutely amazing. The first half is an absolute mess, but the second one makes up for it. And my goodness, there is absolutely no need for 90 freaking looks.
A Gucci show is an expected partition...
With that invitation and that set, something more exciting was needed.
Some silhouettes were almost too Demna for Balenciaga.
I'm not that excited about Gucci anymore. At least the collections...
I'm only here for the New York Yankees logo.
Who knew Allesandro was a fan? LMAO!
The show was too short, with all this medical settings which must show the public how the clothes were created or similar story.. but at least it was nothing with show. Steril.
And clothes. I saw the show two times , first time i was little bit surprised , second time i liked more , there are many good pieces in this collection, as always. This time his choice was more bling-bling instead patches, embroiedery and prints but i prefer patches and prints in his Gucci.
I had to second check the thread as I really thought this was something by Demna. I never liked anything by this "new" Gucci but this is the worst collection to date. Even the "NY" logo feels like one of Demna's collaborations for Vetements. The focus on "work" attire and the "russian" doll look... he's not even hiding it anymore. Gucci died, for real.
on a positive note, i guess the faster pussycat kill kill shirt i've owned for years and paid for like 10 euros will be so! trendy! next season
Those Yankees loafers are going to be everywhere, I call it.
Alessandro really is an enigma, his shows are always hideous, the styling is always all over the place and it often looks like a thrift shop - but the collections in terms of sale wise, translate really well and are always a hit.
He really reminds me of Hedi at SL, his collections were always slated but when it came to the commerciality of the show, it always struck a cord, just like with Alessandro.
This aesthetic of what is the line between what is perceived as 'pretty' and what is defined as 'ugly' was something started by Miuccia in a conversation in 2012 and I get that Alessandro and those alike are really pushing those boundaries, but this is genuinely hideous.
I'm more curious what those 6-8 black-clad security-guard-looking-types were doing just after Alessandro took his bow and almost shielded someone to the exit...
Also there was this strange moment when everyone seemed to be waiting for the models to come out again (or at least I think so) after Alessandro was on the runway but nothing happened. Usually everyone is gone so fast after a runway show that this seemed awkward.
I feel like Gucci runway shows are irrelevant in the big scheme. His collections don't follow the normal thematic, seasonal rule. The clothes only really come alive in the shops and detached from all the styling. I don't think they should even do shows anymore, just do lookbooks and "drops" like Supreme.
I'm starting to like Gucci after all. I think the dragon is a little much, but overall I think it's very modern
Oh my god I am the only one seeing a head in models’ arms? Wtf is that? What is the point?
