Gucci Milan Fashion Week SS18
Since Alessandro Michele took over at Gucci the brand has created collections that are whimsical, vintage inspired with a retro Hollywood glam. The SS18 collection was full of glitter and glam, ’80s shoulders, English tweeds, Disney and Sega references. I especially love the pant suits, maxi dresses and dusters.
Michele’s friendship with Elton John was evidently inspiration for this collection. David Furnish confirmed that Michele had been invited over to go through Elton’s archive of starry early ’70s glam rock stage clothes. “He has all the things Bob Mackie and Annie Reavey made,” said Furnish. “Elton loves Alessandro, and really appreciates what he’s doing.”
