. Mr Alessandro Michele picks out the coolest historical references for Gucci ‘s collections. Part of the AW19 lineup, these loafers are modelled on shapes from the 17th and 18th centuries and embellished with phrasing on the heels that recalls tongue-in-cheek slogans coined by the Duke of Devonshire. They have leather uppers, linings and soles and feature the brand’s signature gold horsebits topped with a chain. Shown here with Gucci shirt, Dries Van Noten trousers, Gucci belt.
