It should be said that each and every collection that Alessandro Michele has designed for Gucci is intrinsically different. While there's (undoubtedly) a consistency to the excessive styling and details, each collection is distinguished by the eclectic combination of themes and references that it is inspired by.
For spring/summer 2019, Michele further conflates his references to fit the narrative. But this time, the visual mishmash makes perfect sense. The runway show was set in Paris' Théâtre Le Palace, the French equivalent to the iconic Studio 54 in New York. And just like the latter, Le Palace was where the worlds of fashion, music and underground culture intersected; an amalgamation of the most interesting creative personas, each with an individual sense of identity.
To celebrate this idea of unapologetically unique expressions, we captured some of the different personalities within Gucci's spring/summer 2019 collection—the rebel, the creative, the intellectual, and everything else in between. If clothes are a measure of self-expression, Gucci's message this season is especially loud and clear: be whoever that speaks to you.
