Unless you’re not high at least one meter eighty by barefoot, be prepared to arm yourself of high heels next season. The trend in all rage at Gucci SS17 show is oversized and floor duster.

We now know what to expect from the designer: enough colour, print and texture to overload the senses; a pick ‘n’ mix of references to different time periods, cultures and subcultures; a youth, androgyny and eccentricity – all encapsulated by a gang of gamine and slightly gawky girls and boys. But Michele’s magic formula doesn’t just look pretty, it’s selling too – you only need to have a quick flick through fashion week street style galleries to see that.

Michele’s clothing was near-couture levels of decadence and intricacy. Look after look of glammed-up nostalgia marched down the runway, with all of the lavish embroideries, even more lavish fabrics and pix-n-mix styling that have become Michele hallmarks. A smattering of men’s looks continued those vibes — Michele’s vision is just as bombastic when it comes to menswear.
All in all, just as trippy and wondrous as you’d expect from an Alessandro Michele collection. At the end of the day, this is luxury clothing for people with wild imaginations and even wilder spending habits.
