GUCCI pre-fall 2016



Gather round ye fashion victims and fashion fawners, the clown bus has arrived!!! Alessandro is the driver and just wait till you see this season’s school uniform. Holy mother of God if it wasn’t so pathetic it would be comical… literally and figuratively! Welcome to the Academy of Fashion Hype!

There is so much to say and that there is some confusion as to where and how to start so let’s just dive in here. One wonders how this wunderkind knew that Mariuccia Mandelli would pass so soon before the collection in which he puts the pussy back in knits as ode to her. There is this hugely childlike quality than makes all of these get ups look mighty cartoonish which somehow doesn’t ring right when you spend $1000s. So all you trendoid wannabe fashion victims better hurry your asses over to the local thrift stores and get a pair of oversized Elton John/Ziggy Stardust glitter glasses, a sunburst pleated skirt, a stock tie blouse,  a baseball jacket and some 70s uber platform shoes and presto you’re “IN” OR YOU ARE WELL PREPARED FOR HALLOWEEN !

Handbags that look like grade school projects, overly and overtly referenced clothes that work in reverse of their intention so that the collection looks so tired, so been there done that and well so overthought and in so doing it is another trying way too hard to be hip collection. To his credit, maybe, this is a 4 season collection that looks to span every climate but it’s just too bad it relies so heavily on deliberate styling, sew on patches and just plain pedestrian design. It’s too bad that the Bizzarri believes that this is a new era of design when in fact all this genius has done is turn back time. The curb is closer than you think!

Paging Cher! Paging Cher! So ... think of YSL, Krizia, Sonia Rykiel, Prada, Hermes, Dolce & Gabanna, Carnaby Street, Chloe. Celine, Vivienne Westwood, Biba. Brooke Shields in Pretty Baby and a raft of others!

PS.. Marco Bizzarri.. you might want to rethink that NEVER on sale dictate you were broadcasting last week AND ALSO to Blah Blah Blanks who had the hubris and audacity to compare this clown to YSL!
