Alessandro Michele’s latest collection for Gucci embraces maximalism with a side of freedom

For Resort 2020, Gucci’s bon vivant bohemian muse raids a closet that spans centuries, stitching together an entirely unique wardrobe that ultimately speaks to freedom.

Playing fashion archaeologist, as he is wont to do, creative director Alessandro Michele digs up references to Rome, to the house codes, to the women’s lib movement, and even to Mickey Mouse. Staging the collection in Rome’s Musei Capitolini—widely considered the world’s first museum—the madcap results also come pinned to an intellectualism that only Michele could pull off.

All colours of the rainbow are embraced throughout the collection, along with a mix of prints and fabrications that feel like the sartorial representation of a ‘70s home. Tufts of faux-fur act as the exclamation point on jackets, while Mickey Mouse scrambles across oversized knits, collared shirts, and A-line skirts. Bermuda shorts gain volume, while the varsity jacket takes on a shrunken silhouette and is winningly paired with Breton stripes.

But it’s not all for the maximalist. For the slightly less daring dresser, a crisp logo’d slide beckons, while mules come adorned with silver-and-gold interlocking G horsebits.

Throughout the collection, clothes jump back and forth across gender lines; Michele isn’t interested in boxing anyone in. His clothes are here to protect, to spread a message, and to challenge the status quo. To Michele, it all comes down to freedom.
