Gucci Resort 2018 In Florence

Thursday, June 01, 2017

Fashion designer Alessandro Michele presented Gucci‘s renaissance-inspired Resort 2018 collection at the Palatine Gallery of Pitti Palace in Florence on May 29th 2017.


Alessandro Michele combined his rich embroideries and decorations, as well as that edgy, cool factor that would not be lost on Sir Elton John, one of his front row guests, who wore a dark jacket with a dazzling sequined, multicolored lizard running down one side.

The location could hardly have been more fitting for the lineup as the frescoed rooms were brimming with masterpieces from the likes of Rubens, Tintoretto, Titian, Velázquez and Caravaggio and guests were able to make a special visit of the Uffizi Museum and the enclosed passageway Vasari Corridor.

“I am always connected with the Renaissance a lot, that’s why I am connected with Pitti Palace,”
explained Michele backstage after greeting François-Henri Pinault and Salma Hayek Pinault, who told the designer she felt this was his “best collection” so far.



“I was thinking of injecting some rock ‘n’ roll in the collection, thinking of faces like [Simonetta] Vespucci [known for her beauty and a model of Botticelli’s]. She was rock ‘n’ roll at the time.” To wit, one model wore her hair in a Venus-by-Botticelli-like fashion, and pearls and dainty laurel crowns framed the models’ faces as they walked in, say, a short brocade dress with a ruffled neck or a billowing pleated chiffon dress in different shades of pink. “I adore pink, it’s very powerful. It makes you feel sweet and sexy, also if you are a man,” mused Michele.
