First up: which Gucci character would you like to play?
G rhombus print coat with cape
Encased in a geometric design, the G logo forms a graphic pattern, animating this belted coat with removable cape. Seen throughout the Fall Winter 2019 ready-to-wear and accessories, the motif modernizes the archival rhombi pattern from the '30s, giving it a bold logo connotation.
This pull-on knee boot has a wide fit that has a slightly slouchy effect, enhanced by the fabric which features a ribbed texture. Set on a platform and chunky heel in a bold red color that was featured in several looks on the Fall Winter 2019 runway.
Crafted from pink Plexiglas, the signature Sylvie bag transforms into a pop accessory, complementing tailored looks, tweed ensembles or streetwear inspired outfits. Imbued with a ladylike feel, the Sylvie 1969 mini is true to the archival design, with the gold-toned metal chain narrowed to a sophisticated accent, and made contemporary through a series of shiny materials and vivid colors.
The opening look of the show, this coat—whose G motif is a modern take on the brand’s rhombi pattern from the '30s—was worn together with red thigh-highs, spiked suspenders and fetish mask, as well as a black tie and… a brush.
Take the accoutrements away, and this is a timeless, keep-forever ensemble that you’ll don this winter and want to come back to every year after. The coat is made to fit beautifully with a nipped waist, there's a removable cape and it's reminiscent of ‘40s tailoring. It’s unapologetically elegant and belongs in your wardrobe.
An all-white houndstooth dress contrasted by black vinyl sleeves and black velvet neckline and cuffs. Woven in a more modern approach with white wool yarns in its signature iteration, the graphic pattern defines the House’s looks for the Fall Winter 2019, refashioned in different scales and presented on unexpected silhouettes.
Featuring a riveted hinge that is reminiscent of vintage shapes from the '50s, these sunglasses are crafted from shiny black acetate and designed with an oversize, square-shaped frame. Classic House codes, like the gold-toned Gucci script and the Interlocking G, enhance the temples.
A bold, modern design and water resistant fabric combine in this rain boot inspired style. The ankle boot is introduced in a bright yellow fabric in a heeled style. A playful front zipper reveals red and yellow leather inserts, completed with a small Double G and Gucci embossed zipper pull.
The Gucci Zumi medium top handle bag is introduced in a tricolor variation with cerise and butter diagonal stripes set against a dark blue smooth leather base. The Interlocking G Horsebit, a combination of two of the House's most distinctive codes, is presented in a dynamic mix of gold- and silver-toned metals against the refined silhouette.
You’ll be the coolest librarian in town in this all-white houndstooth tweed dress with vinyl sleeves and vintage-looking resin buttons. Pair it with a pop of colour: these playful zip-up yellow boots, which are made of water-resistant fabric, will ensure you look the part, even on rainy days.
Complete your bookish look with sunglasses, a quintessential granny Gucci bag and your latest favourite read—how about Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland? Creative director Alessandro Michele is known to be an avid collector and among his prized collection is a set of 35 (and counting) different editions of this famous children’s book.
A black and red diamond pattern is comprised of beaded fringes on this black mini dress. Metal snake heads with crystals face off as a delicate detail along the neckline and black vinyl cuffs add a rocker feel. The mini dress is an important silhouette seen throughout the Fall Winter 2019 collection, channeling the notorious look from decades past.
Bridging the past with the present, these sunglasses are inspired by vintage reading glasses and reimagined through the Gucci lens. Crafted from gold-toned metal, the subtle frame features engraved details that add a precious feel, while the yellow rubber nose pads are a nod to specialty eyewear. In a game of multicolor reflections, the rainbow GG lens reveals the House's eclectic vision.
How does rock 'n' roll look like through Gucci's lens? Alessandro Michele would probably be inspired by his good friend Nick Cave, and the idea of a musician-writer who is both notorious and an anti-social misfit (of course), spending their days melancholic and sitting around shredded violins and guitars.
Now, what would she wear? Something absolutely dizzying like this beaded fringe mini dress complete with black vinyl cuffs. Look closer at the neckline and find two metal snake heads in a face-off. Add on an exaggerated platform heel, rainbow GG motifs on a pair of sunglasses, inspired by vintage reading glasses—and you’re stage-ready.
