Say what you want about Gucci’s Alessandro Michele, but if there’s one thing he’s not, it’s bland. Evidence of this can be found in the house’s FW16 show in Milan earlier this month. Previously hung up on staying within the confines of luxury fashion, under Michele’s newfound direction, the brand has dared to defy the establishment.
For Pre-Fall 2016, styles tend to support Michele’s penchant for the grandiose, with signature appliques, a rampant use of print, and complex embroideries utilized by the provocative designer.
