As with everything Alessandro Michele presents, Gucci’s Fall/Winter 2020 show was multidimensional.
The show presented models as dress-up dolls in Michele’s latest creations, standing in a glass-encased carousel rather than walking the runway and unveiling what lies behind the curtains known only to fashion show producers and industry insiders.
It was all part of Alessandro Michele’s plan to turn the typically unseen work of a fashion show into the spectacle itself. ‘’I have always considered the fashion show as an event bursting with enchantment’’, began his welcome notes.
The collection touched on Alessandro Michele’s passion for whimsical children’s wear details. Delicate embroidered collars, trimmed in lace, embellished transparent dresses; Mary Jane style patent shoes were crafted with platform heels. Other looks featured suiting in check wools with flared pant legs, gowns with tiers of ruffled lace, and headbands with floral Liberty prints. Bags included the archival Jackie and the Gucci 1955 Horsebit bag in a new top handle shape.
