You can always count on Gucci to push the envelope with its elaborate runways, but Alessandro Michele took it to the next level today at the fashion house’s Fall 2018 show.
Baby dragons, human heads as accessories, a third eye and face masks: these are the key looks in Gucci’s cyborg world. Creating a waiting area meets operating room, the brand described its show on Instagram, writing, “the concept reflects the work of a designer—the act of cutting, splicing and reconstructing materials and fabrics to create a new personality and identity with them. The materials used are typical of an operating room and the environment around it: PVC on the walls and floors, fire doors with panic-bars, LED lamps, and plastic chairs like those in a waiting room.”
Translating that theme into the collection itself, models hit the runway carrying items like human heads, baby dragons and iguanas (fanny packs and crossbody bags are so last season).
