Alessandro Michele’s creative direction for Gucci has not only been eccentric, but eclectic. The designer’s fall-winter 2018 collection was no different. The season unfolded with the idea of exposing the laboratory that is his thought process, as he processes outside influences. Comparable to Frankenstein, the creative process included the mixing and matching of various ideas. The juxtaposition of fabrics embodied the thought process, while an exploration of the Gucci man and his aesthetic furthered it. On one hand, you have the dandy idea of sharp suits and the expected companions. Meanwhile, the search for the next trend dictates key details like references to the New York Yankees. In other places, you had the typical Michele affair with kitsch pieces propelled by prints, proportions, and graphics.
