GUCCI -a collaborative effort by the design team

Dear Shaded Viewers,

The in-house design team went back to GUCCI archives, not much of Alessandro  Michele was present it was more the timeline of Tom Ford or Frida Giannini at GUCCI. Buyers seemed happy with the commercial collection that will keep their cash registers ringing. The collection was clean and subdued with oversize coats, jackets and trousers as well as slim fitting denims, accessories, it was a kind of wipe the slate clean collection and let’s wait and see who CEO Marco Bizzarri decides to put in the place of Alessandro Michele. No doubt it will be a strong creative director, time will tell.
