Gucci Fall 2018 Fashion Week Street Style Style

Alessandro Michele has always challenged conventional ideas of beauty. He casts models that look more like misfits; they appear on the runway gangly and un-made-up, with awkward hairstyles and angry expressions. Gucci Fall 2018 was an exception only in that some had extreme body modifications—an extra eye or a spare head.

The show was set in an operating theater, which the brand stated “reflects the work of a designer—the act of cutting, splicing and reconstructing materials and fabrics to create a new personality and identity with them.” Recasting unlikely references is Michele’s specialty. His inspirations are broad, ranging from the ancient to science fiction, the glamorous to the grotesque. His collections could struggle to hang together, except that each is sprinkled with the excess sparkle of a fairy tale, macabre and transcendent. Instead of performing surgery on specific bodies or creating from cut cloth, Michele more so operates on the social fabric of Western Civilization, our cultural stories, identities and memories. It’s peak postmodernism, so it’s no surprise that the designer referenced Michel Foucault’s identity theories in his show notes.

Our street-style photographer Crystal Nicodemus on the ladies whose looks commanded her lens. 

I had expected Milan Fashion Week to continue the exuberance of New York, perhaps even more committed to the wild patterns and colors we’ve seen thus far, but the fashion capital is full of surprises.

Overall, the week felt rather subdued. There was an abundance of delicate florals and subtle animal print. Colors were rich, but not overly bright. The true highlight of the week was texture—velvet, soft wools, cashmere, silks and satins, and shearling—all sumptuous and touchable. Tailoring also made a strong appearance, with many a blazer and femme power suit parading down the streets.

Ahead, the styles that make it all worthwhile and the women who make it look effortless.

Fashion Bytes: Gucci’s History of the World at Milan Fashion Week

Welcome to Fashion Bytes, a cheat sheet for your favorite runway designers. From style inspirations to behind-the-scenes scoops, here’s everything worth knowing at Milan Fashion Week Spring 2018.

The brand: Gucci

The history: The label was founded by the unbelievably alliterative Guccio Gucci in 1921. Gucci had been a porter at the Savoy Hotel in London—that was the extent of his firsthand experience before beginning his luxury luggage company in his birthplace, Florence. In 1953, the designer’s sons (Aldo, Rodolfo, Ugo and Vasco) established a new logo for the brand in tribute to their father and founder, and the double G was born.
