It's hard to believe that Alessandro Michele has only been the creative director at Gucci for about a year and a half. Almost immediately, Michele transformed the brand into one of the buzziest companies in fashion; his first full collection was so successful that Gucci didn't even need to have a sale at the end of the season. Things at the brand have been humming along beautifully ever since, and the latest evidence of that is Gucci's gone-in-a-flash capsule collection for Net-a-Porter.
The 18-piece exclusive line debuted on Net-a-Porter's site Monday and included ready-to-wear, bags, shoes and small accessories in a gorgeous vintage floral that won't be available anywhere else (and that would probably look like your grandma's couch in a less capable designer's hands). At close of business Monday, ten of the pieces had fully sold out, including all the leather goods, and all the sized merchandise left was nearly gone.
There is some good news if you missed out, though: many of the pieces are marked with "more stock coming soon," so if you see something you like, we suggest heading over to the collection's page and adding your desired piece to your Net-a-Porter account's wish list. Doing so will give you the right of first refusal upon restock, which is the ideal position to be in when shopping a very limited-edition capsule collection from one of the world's hottest handbag brands.
