Alessandro Michele Dubs Gucci's FW20 Show "An Unrepeatable Ritual"

The collection references religion, bondage and more.

In line with Gucci‘s recent re-branding, which replaced its block serif logo of yesteryear with childlike script, Creative Director Alessandro Michele presented handwritten show notes for his latest collection. Michele dubs Gucci’s Fall/Winter 2020 range “An Unrepeatable Ritual” that, according to Gucci’s Twitter, aims to “unveil what lies behind the curtains.”

Held at the Gucci Hub in Milan, the show took a colorful yet figuratively dark approach. Themes including religion and bondage were presented side-by-side, exemplifying Michele’s suggestion of ritual and taboo. Some models sported delicate, sheer dresses paired with leather harnesses (spiked chokers also made an appearance) while others were accessorized with sugarloaf pilgrim hats and hefty cross necklaces.

Michele’s signature vintage-inspired aesthetic also shone through — references to eras past range from the Tudor period all the way to the ’90s. Though the color palette remained mostly in the realm of pastels, choice pops of red, magenta and green were also included. Romantic, tiered lace gowns with ruched bodices and bow detailing are sure to become editorial favorites in the coming months, and the collection’s update on the classic Jackie purse suggests the style may become fashion’s new It-bag.

Check out every look from the Gucci FW20 show in the gallery above.
