Gucci's SS19 Collection Was a Technicolor Dream Filled With Theater-Inspired Pieces
Presented in the historic Théâtre Le Palace.
Alessandro Michele dedicated Gucci‘s Spring/Summer 2019 collection to two widely renowned actors of the mid ’60s, Leo de Berardinis and Perla Peragallo. In the show notes, the fashion house expressed that both individuals were equally “passionate” and “decadent” in the way that they dominated Italian theatre. With that in mind, for Gucci’s first show in Paris, Michele presented a collection in the historic Théâtre Le Palace.
Bold elements dominated the majority of the collection. It’s important to note that Michele added a hint of sexuality to the SS19 range. The sex appeal was seen in the bedazzled belt cups worn by the male models. In the realm of clothing, the collection featured floor-length dresses, glitzy separates and chic suiting. The women went down the runway in radical pairings which included flashy tones like magenta, orange and purple. The presentation was marked by poignant garments which further proved the theatre inclinations of the range.
An additional element which plays a significant role in the Gucci range are the bold accessories. Notable standouts include the vintage monogram print handbags and the colorful, leather carry-alls which were spotted in a plethora of tones. Headgear included Western cowboy hats and knit turbans. In total, Alessandro Michele’s imagination led to an exploratory SS19 collection.
