Alessandro Michele has revived Gucci. His SS18 collection is brimming with the candor of a man who feels completely in sync with the fashion universe. Being the commercial juggernaut Gucci has become under Alessandro's tutelage to the visually overwhelming brand Gucci continues to remain, is a matter of great joy and wonder. His show was an exploration of the past through the refined expertise of the present. It was a show where clothes were only part of the experience, the experience was the real fashion.
