Gucci MFW fall 2017

LET THE FAWNING BEGIN.... in earnest


Color me flummoxed! Was it impressive … jeez yes! The scale of it was monumental which no doubt matches the ego of the designer. The set, the staging, the sheer quantity of models and pieces which it took to create these outrageously over the top statements or are they monstrosities? Apparently this genius never found a floral he didn’t like, a shiny fabric he didn’t like,  an affectation he didn’t want to overuse and for sure he never found a designer he didn’t opt to copy ... whether it was Mikli sunglasses or the original Kenzo Jungle Jap or maybe Chanel or McQueen or maybe even Westwood but hell who’s keeping track? I want to know how you spend millions on a show and turn out the cheapest looking crap imaginable?

This is without a doubt a fashion victim’s multiple orgasm event which will outdo every brand on every possible level including the degree of heinously ugly shit that’s been dredged up from the 60s, 70s, 80s and god knows when else and where else and honestly I don’t care to know. Everything about this show was let’s throw it up against the wall and see what sticks but what you want is what fell to the floor then just pile it on until there’s nothing left.

It is a cacophony of color, a sound barrier breaking racket of patterns and just so utterly tasteless to be considered anything but pathetic. The designer has now proven he knows only thing and that is to visually shock and overload the viewer as to almost Trumpian proportion in the distraction from what it is intended to be and that is FASHION ... not a drag show... I say drag in every possible definition and manifestation  ... and surely not a costume party.

BTW... there were about a dozen pieces that must have slipped in by accident as they actually looked wearable ! Also did you notice he has the most unique ability to make clothes that look 2 dimensional.. Almost like cardboard cutouts but the again maybe that’s because of their cartoon like character!
