A Modern Renaissance: Gucci Cruise 2018

Inspired by romantic and powerful civilizations of the past, the Gucci Cruise 2018 show took control of the Palatine gallery of the Palazzo Pitti in Florence, Italy. The classics were there—embellished gowns, golden wreaths, carefully placed tiaras—but there was no shortage of Gucci trademarks, of course. Cheeky slogans, graphic prints, and over-the-top florals all walked through seven art-adorned rooms.

Extravagant pantsuits, strategic logo-placement, pearls, and detailed brocade decorated the models as they made their way through the gallery. Blending Classical themes with the psychedelic vibes of the ’60s and ’70s, Alessandro Michele has done what he does best. He has taken the fashion house to new heights, making cultural statements and political nudges throughout most of his collections, especially within those most recent. There’s no denying it: Michele has created a true Modern Renaissance.

Among the many phrases of Gucci that debuted in the collection, the house’s trademarked phrase, “L’Aveugle Par Amour” (“Blind For Love”), returned refreshed on a bold knit, an embroidered jacket, and detail a not-so-classic bag. Bomber jackets, velvet skirts, floral suiting, wool capes, and even a pair of holographic pants round out the collection.
