Gucci Spring 2018: A Dizzying Feast of 80s Sequins, Sunglasses and Track Suits

Alessandro Michele’s Spring 2018 collection for Gucci fused a multitude of genres, eras and monumental inspirations such as mysticism, ancient Rome, the poet Horace and Elton John. The collection entitled “The act of creation as an act of resistance,” delved into ideas of resistance and individuality. Upon closer inspection the models looked as if they just stepped out of great aunt’s closet, although one with the freshness and quirkyness of a young person’s perspective.

Frizzy permed-like hair, 80s shoulder pads, glittery stockings and rhinestone sunglasses were cheekily juxtaposed with logomania and structured tailoring. Timeless pieces such as tweed suits and fur coats were styled with the maximalist ethos of Elton John. It was Alessandro Michele’s now signature mish mash of color, print, pattern and layering with a diverse blend of references.

There were also more obscure references such as a “Never Marry A Mitford” sweater based on Gucci’s relationship with the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire and their country estate Chatsworth House, a sparkly Bugs Bunny vest, and a sequined Snow White biting into the poison apple sweater.

Accessories included, but were not limited to quilted fanny packs, slides and oxford shoes, belts, layered pearl necklaces, and giant jeweled G’s. Almost everything was either heavily sequined, bejeweled, or ostentatiously adorned for the die-hard Gucci fashion fans.

“Resist the mantra of speed that violently leads to loosing (sic) oneself. Resist the illusion of something new at any cost.”
