Gucci Milan Fashion Week Aw15 Backstage Girls
It’s a new dawn. It’s a new day. It’s a new life for Gucci where new designer Alessandro Michele has taken the helm. Yesterday he debuted his first womenswear collection for the brand. Michele’s Gucci girl is a new type of Gucci girl. One who reads Dostoyevsky and shops in vintage shops. She has a Wes Anderson kind of eccentricity and a certain androgyny. (I’m reminded the Blur lyrics “ Girls who are boys / Who like boys to be girls / Who do boys like they’re girls / Who do girls like they’re boys). Essentially, her wardrobe of berets, blouses, boot-cut trousers and furry brogues have made her younger and, ultimately, cooler.
