Gucci Autumn/Winter 2015 Ready to Wear at Milan Fashion Week
News broke only a month ago that Alessandro Michele would be replacing Frida Giannini as creative director at Gucci. And the drama aside, I'm still not sure how I feel.
Pros: this collection is really beautiful and beautifully done. I love the long silhouettes and the loose ruffles, embroidery, and fur coats. The suited looks were gorgeous and strong.
Cons: I wasn't blown away as I expected to be. Maybe my expectations were too high; but if this collection was from Frida, I'd say it was still beautiful but definitely not her best. Yes, I will compare Alessandro to Frida, as they come from the same Gucci culture in the first place - he worked under her for long enough to have her signature stick to him.
Guys, I would love to hear your thoughts!
How do you feel about this choice of creative director? Do you like this collection?
