It seems wrong, or at least incomplete, to say that we all know what to expect from Gucci at this point. While it's true that designer Alessandro Michele went about setting the codes for his collections in extremely short order, he also instilled a constant variation that's the key to Gucci's success under his creative leadership. What we should expect from him, then, is a little bit of everything, all somehow puzzled together into a cohesive whole.
One of Michele's favorite things to do is to refer liberally to Gucci's past, which makes sense: the brand has a rich aesthetic history from which to take cues, and many of those touches are beloved by the brand's fans. For Fall 2017, which debuted yesterday in Milan, Gucci Bamboo takes a center stage atop both the bags that have traditionally used it and brand new top handle satchels from Michele.
You can check out those designs and all the others--and there are plenty of others, as is Alessandro Michele's way--below.
