After all, the Cruise Gucci shows are always a guarantee: there is always a great show and so it was also this time. The time, space, memories and perspectives of Gucci, also this time, have been mixed together to give great emphasis to the creations of Alessandro Michele.
In particular, an applause for the choice of location: the Roman necropolis of Arles is, without too many turns of words, very beautiful. After all, the artistic director has always been accustomed to beautiful places, starting from the Dia Art Foundation in New York to the Cloisters of Westminster Abbey in London and the Palatina Gallery in Palazzo Pitti in Florence.
A cross between ancient and modern times, for a truly epic brand story made of gothic atmospheres, from the music to the low lights to the dark models that have been described by Gucci as "the widows who frequent the funeral sites, the children playing rock 'n' roll and ladies who are not ladies».
Space, then, to the review of the logos: the writing Gucci, for example, was reinterpreted in Sega style and the same Elton John, who has paid homage to the evening, will dress Gucci in his next Farewell Tour.
114 different looks and souls for Gucci Cruise 2019: plaid skirts, silk floral prints, tiger stripes, rock star ensembles, velvet dresses and richly embroidered hoods. And, in all this, endless references to local history, references to Dante Alighieri, but also to Billy Idol and the eighties atmospheres. And a great tribute to Christian Lacroix, a great French coututier born in Arles. "When we speak - said Christian Lacroix in reference to Alessandro Michele - I feel like I'm talking to my little brother. We are really attracted by the same things. We have the same tastes, the same passions ".
