There is perhaps no single brand aesthetic as recognizable in fashion right now as Gucci's. Alessandro Michele arrived at the brand with clear but expansive vision for what a fashion collection could be and all it could include, and he has never once wavered. Spring 2017's collection, which debuted yesterday in Milan, is exactly in line with everything we know about Michele's Gucci woman to this point.
Michele's collections aren't distinct sets of ideas so much as they're expansions on what came before them. They feel like he looked at his previous work and then employed the old improv principle of "yes, and...", which is supposed to lend itself a scene's progression and expansion. At Gucci, that lead to chinoiserie floral prints on silk, which made for some gorgeous bags in particular. There were also all the other embellishments, additions and details we've come to expect, including new animal-head clasps and bags emblazoned with written messages over leather and brocade.
