Milan: Perhaps one of the Autumn/Winter season’s most anticipated shows was presented today; at the helm, the brand’s new Creative Director, Alessandro Michele. There was none of the provocative allure that might have been expected, instead, a meticulously designed lineup with a distinct turn of the century feel. Victorian styled long chemise dresses, mid-calf pleated skirts and botanical florals printed on tiered chiffon dresses were reminiscent of early schoolgirl days where loved vintage pieces might be found in the attic. The military redingotes and fur coats were perfectly trimmed with cuffs of coloured fur while the floral printed masculine suits felt feminine and up to the minute. The Gucci luxury was evident – from the bows attached with classic brooches, dropped earrings, studious spectacles,French berets and the Gucci loafers – it all looked decidedly youthful in this quiet but impactful collection. – Lizzy Bowring
