Gucci FW 2015/2016: A romantic reinterpretation

Alessandro Michele for Gucci was meant to be a momentous debut. Of course, because the new Creative Designer of the Italian House, say insiders, put together an entire collection in a matter of days. As well as through the pieces he put on the fall-winter 2015-2016 runway. Next season’s masculine collection seems to be signalling a new stylistic phase in Gucci’s traditional personality.

One with a distinctly free spirit. And one that clothes its runways in concepts. The Milan show made a central point out of its theme of loose demarcations between the sexes and the clothing so far inflexibly attributed to each of them. On the catwalk, wearing the menswear were also a few female models. And the styling put forward for the fall of 2015 is one described as urban romanticism.

If Leonardo di Caprio in The Man with the Iron Mask would have worn Gucci, probably he would have chosen one of the proposed shirts. With buttons and lapels worn with a black lace tied up in a bow or even making the transition to frilled blouse – in white, red or with decorative or figurative prints, they were a genuine fil rouge of the collection.

It’s about a style altogether personal, one for contemporary non-conformists, says Alessandro Michele. And that’s why, from the shearling overcoat to the loose, boxy cut trousers, it speaks in an original manner, tributary to a specific set of experiences and moods, about fashion and about the key-pieces of the Florentine House. The horsebit shoes are now mink finished slippers, and the GG initials sign off belts lending structure to a fluid collection.
