Not to be outdone by the likes of Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior, the long haired comedian/mad scientist of fashion held his (Alessandro Michele) Gucci show at Westminster Abbey and it’s no wonder the Brits were up in arms... talk about sacrilege! Venue is the new trend)
The best way to describe this mind bending parade of couture priced junior clothes is to say it most resembles what you think Edina Monsoon’s (you know Eddie from Ab Fab) closet might look like or how she would be styled by Alessandro Michele with clothes from every thrift store or flea market stall in London. If that’s not enough, then think of Jeremy Scott, Dolce& Gabbana, Thom Browne, Hedi era Saint Laurent, McQueen, Moschino and god knows who or what else... put them all on magic shrooms and presto you get this nuclear explosion of bad taste and caricature which might be comical if it wasn’t for real.
Do you wonder why Gucci can’t make its financial turnaround as was once predicted? Gee, do you think it could be season after season of cartoon clothes compounded by cartoon styling, cartoon ads and cartoon accessories? Ya think?
It is trash like this that gives fashion a bad rap as well as the reason why the shit doesn’t sell, outlet stores will overflow and for the last time, hype doesn’t sell clothes at these prices especially when the target audience is 20 somethings who can’t afford $5000 bombers or $1000 sneakers and still live at home.
Let the media feeding frenzied stampede begin!! C H A R G E!!!!!!!
PS... Dottore Gucci aka Aldo is spinning at 150 mph in his grave as this couldn’t be any further from the DNA of this legendary and fabled heritage brand
