Alessandro Michele wanted the Parthenon in Athens for this collection. That’s how high a mega-brand like Gucci will go to create a masterpiece.


The vestiges of the ancient Classical theme were apparent—gilded wreaths, tiaras implanted with silver lyres—but then again, they were only a part of the extraordinary things Michele does to frame and individualize his cast of characters. There were leopard-spot turbans, head scarves, woolly bandeaux, nerdy tinted spectacles, glittery-framed sunglasses (I bought one at the Schipol airport in Amsterdam). Even I, am caught with Gucci again!
