Gucci: Agent Provocateur
Having fainted at Gucci after exposure to strobe lights, screaming music and sex-pot women waving whips at their hips, I may not be the right person to review the spring/summer 2020 collection that effectively closed the Milan season.
I absorbed Alessandro Michele’s parade of male and female figures acting emotionally disturbed in straitjackets of all-white uniforms, looking uncomfortably close to escapees from an asylum. As they passed, glassy-eyed, down the travelator that served as a runway throughout the 100-plus show, the star-shaped ceiling lights suggested a red light district.
And so did the models, whose prim tailored suits were interspersed by transparent negligees as if in a re-run of hidden prostitution, seen in the famous French movie Belle de Jour starring Catherine Deneuve.
“It was funny to see my women dressed as mistresses – sexy and romantic,” said the designer, who marks five years at Gucci in January.https://www.instagram.com/p/B2uCXNPn_Ma/?utm_source=ig_embed&utm_campaign=dlfix
