These last seasons, we’ve seen how the ‘more is more’ approach of Michele diluted little by little and started to incorporate more minimalist elements. Of course, though, without compromising his love for Renaissance and the Baroque-inspired aesthetics, vivid prints and colours, rich details, or glimmering finishings. For Pre-Fall 2020, Gucci’s Creative Director draws inspiration from the ‘60s and the ‘70s: psychedelic prints creating a polychromatic fantasy, hippy-inspired garments – scarf dresses, caftans, floral motifs, etc. –, paillettes dresses, platform shoes and snakeskin for women.
For men, bootleg pants, lots of sartorial pieces – suits, blazers, trench coats – and, naturally, vibrant pints – from leopard to zebra. Shot in Rome by Bruce Gilden, a Magnum-signed, New York-based photographer most known for his street photography, the Pre-Fall collections are depicted in snapshot style, making it even more dynamic, hip, fresh and cool.
