The house of Gucci is celebrating its 100th anniversary with a fall-winter 2021 collection that is eclectic, unending in brand building, and an enduring milestone in the house’s evolution.
In this collection, Gucci’s Creative Director Alessandro Michele curates thematic canons of the Gucci universe with exaggeration, gender-bending sexuality, sabotage, and visionary vigor. While the legacy of Gucci’s history and the signatures of previous legendary Creative Directors including Tom Ford, and Frida Giannini, could have provided ample inspiration, Michelle ‘hacked’ Balenciaga. Including silhouettes, symbols, and iconography from Balenciaga, re-imaged with Michelle’s ‘Gucci-vision’, the designer turned fashion upside down and inside out. His sabotage, so brilliant that it encapsulates the propulsion of Gucci forward with a tsunamic foretelling of fashions near-future. Gucci.
