Floral prints define ready-to-wear pieces seen on the #GucciCruise19 fashion show in Arles, including a hooded padded coat and a tracksuit featuring Flora—a print created by Vittorio Accornero, first used by the House in 1966—styled with a feathered hat inspired by a vintage design of Frank Olive. A new bag features the Double G hardware. #AlessandroMichele
“The buzzword over the last few years has been minimalism. It is seen in the stark white design of Scandi-inspired rooms. It is in the rotations of a 10-piece capsule wardrobe. It even attended the Royal Wedding in the form of Meghan Markle’s dress. It is a Marie Kondo world and we are all just living in it.
But if there is anything that’s certain about fashion, it’s that the pendulum swings both ways. There’s an equal but opposite reaction to every action. There are signs that maximalism—a bolder, more intricate aesthetic—is taking over.”
