The reinvention of Gucci. Alessandro Michele- the men of the year

The collections which Alessandro Michele has unveiled from the beginning of his tenure  can “love or hate” –  so many people are dreaming to have some pieces from Michele’s collections but same time a lot of persons find it simply ridiculous. Every piece is a statement. From  the first collection Michele’s Gucci stands for surrealism, androgyny and luxury.
The Gucci’s revenues are growing up and one unknown designer has been changing the fashion trends all over the world. This unknown designer is Alessandro Michele, who was named International Fashion Designer of the Year at the British Fashion Awards.
Michele made a colourfull waves on the red carpets. Only some names, such Gwyneth Paltrow, Salma Hayek, Dakota Johnson were wearing Gucci in the annual LACMA Gala in Los Angeles last year.
But let us go back in time, exactly – In 2004 Tom Ford and his  business partner Domenico De Sole  brought the Gucci back to the Fashion scene,  they brought the Italian leather goods business back from the brink of bankruptcy and transforming it into the most desirable fashion brand in the world. (Do you know that in 2015, Tom Ford was named one of GQ’s  50 best dressed men.  He also received a CFDA  Fashion Award for Menswear designer of the year.)
During Frida Giannini tenure Gucci became known for its strong product focus but the fashion is a business and the revenues must grown up, so after years of profitable growth , Gucci started to loose and it was time to make a changes.
In December 2014, Marco Bizzarri was settling into a role as head of the Luxury Couture & Leather Goods division of Kering . And  Mr. Bizzarri made a right choice, he choosed  Alessandro Michele who replaced Frida Giannini . Alessandro Michele who had worked behind the scenes at Gucci for 12 years, got the chance of his life. He had only few weeks -or maybe one week?- to create his first men fall 2015  collection , for womens ready-to-wear fall 2015 he had one week. It was success. From  the first collection Michele’s Gucci stands for surrealism and androgyny but the newness each season is essential. In the spring/summer  2016 collection there are more sheer fabrics, more heels, more dresses. It seems that aesthetic of Michele’s Gucci started to move away from androgyny to  more feminility.
Michele’s success is not  measured in monthes , not at all. Gucci customers and Michele fan’s are loving the summer 2016 and pre-fall 2016 collections because fashion lovesnothing more that individuality and originality and Alessandro Michele has both of it and we can see this qualities in his creations.
Michele’s collections can see everywhere,  from red carpets to Instagram fashion community.
 Only some names, such Gwyneth Paltrow, Salma Hayek, Dakota Johnson were wearing Gucci in the annual LACMA Gala in Los Angeles last year.
And the Instagram  community , social medias and bloggers are sharing shimmer  vintage runway looks  and Pictures of the backless, high-heeled loafers . Social Networks users made their choice ( as example : Gucci actually has 6,9 millions followers on Instagram , Olivier Rousteing has only 2,1 millions, Balmain 3,5 millions )
 In this time – don’t forget that the fashion weeks carousel is began yet-not only the Gucci customers but the whole fashion world is attended the Gucci womenswear collection for fall-winter 2016. In one month  Alessandro Michele will unveiled us his collection and will tell us what and where he get his inspirations during the creating process.

Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2016 ready-to-wear collection – Paris Fashion Week

Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2016 ready-to-wear collection, creativ director Nicolas Ghesquière.Vuitton get it right when it hired Nicolas Ghesquière who presented another stellar collection at the Frank Gehry-designed Fondation yesterday morning on the final day of Paris Fashion Week offering colored biker jackets and shiny Dresses.
A computerised voice introduced the spring/summer 2016 show as „A journey to the frontiers of the digital era“. A conversation between technology and nature animated the new collection, his most audacious yet for the LV  House.
Ghesquière’s cyberpunks wore moto jackets and metal-embroidered skirts, laser-cut leathers and beaded knits that coded like armor, and spaceship-print pants.  The materials looked high-tech but were actually not synthetics at all. What with the nailhead-embroidered peasant dresses, the crafty sweaters, and the festival-girl crop tops and shorts, Vuitton Spring looked a lot like a digital bohemia.Who knew where Ghesquière’s spirited parade of intergalactic punky girls were headed?
Front  row : actresses Catherine Deneuve and Michelle Williams, models also wore striped knits, shiny mesh tank tops, tops with ruffle collars, bubble skirts, jumpsuits and jodhpur-like trousers bearing colorful Patchwork.

Giambattista Valli Spring/Summer 2016 ready-to-wear collection – Paris Fashion Week

Giambattista Valli is finding favour with the little babydoll dress right now – it’s a style that underpins his Giamba line and it’s one that he gave to us in the plenty last season. Only where then it was over trousers for long and lean lengths, this time round it was about bare legs on show and great flat-formed gladiator sandals that climbed the length of the leg beneath a coat of similar proportions up top. He continued with his riff on Seventies patterning and made sure there was a handful of gowns to swoon over too,they billowed in hippy grace and half morphed into the babydoll numbers that preceded them. Valli seems to have found a new youthful groove when it comes to his ready-to-wear line.

John Galliano Spring/Summer 2016 ready-to-wear collection – Paris Fashion Week

Galliano is a genie, there is no doubt about it. His creativity has thousend facets. This week we saw luxury and creativity of his Maison Margiela’s s/s 2016 prêt-à-porter collection . But here  let us remember that  John Galliano’s fashion house named Bill Gaytten as new creative director  of Galliano’s eponymous Label… but it was a few years ago. So what?- will think you. So, it means that we don’t ( and didn’t see in last collections) see eccentric  creations under John Galliano eponymous Label as we are waiting for  and about he is famous for.
Anyway ,Galliano had come to represent British eccentricity at its wildest, Gaytten offered a variant that felt more fit to the lifestyle of his youthful target.But the initial order of business was to return to his roots, and those of the brand, by examining Britishness, seen through the kaleidoscope of its sartorial history. From tailoring to punk, from uniforms to underdressed, the staples of the genre were reinterpreted in gossamer thin fabric. All charming, but extra points went to blazers with sheer panels and parkas in mesh, perfectly cut and a testament to Gaytten’s talent in this field. Beading and delicate laces were paired with restraint. The lingerie overtone of many of the dresses was offset by the London energy that pulsated heavily from the runway.
