In Alessandro Michele’s first Gucci show for the season, men’s Fall Winter 2020, he also celebrates his fifth anniversary at the legendary helm of the house. And what better way to do that than in the style of French child’s birthday meets pounding rave?
If you’re confused as to how this will all translate into wearable items, you’re not alone. But you can rest assured that Michele’s baroque punk mixed bag references allllllways result in collections of maximalist obsession. What we do know this time is that his invitations mirrored vintage French postcards and the ornate invites posh kids sent to their friends back in the day. And the soundtrack to the insta invite is exactly what you’d expect from a post tagged #RaveLikeYouAreFive.
You can livestream the whole party below, which begins Tuesday, January 14 at 12.30pm CET (that’s 10pm AEST). How do you say ‘untz’ in French?
