Another stand out collection from Alessandro Michele, featured the trademark embellishment and OTT styling that has now become synonymous with the new Gucci.

Taking it up a level, the range was awash with print, pattern and colour, inspired by British youth culture and the grand backdrop of the cloisters of Westminster Abbey.

Punk influenced tartan, old school sportswear, Spice Girls inspired footwear and Union Jack sweaters, were mixed with heavily embellished bombers & bleached jeans, appliquéd rainbow knits and Victorian ruffle dresses in a mish mash of eras and cultural references.

  • Animal appliqués included cats, dogs, lions and tigers.
  • Contrast binding, go-faster stripes, sports socks and boxing boots add sporty details.
  • Retro floral prints are densely decorated on bright and black grounds.
