Bold and brilliant. Amazing colors, mixture of texture. So much fun. Cinderella, Disney. Superyoung.
Buzzwords used by Anne Wintour to describe the Gucci pre-fall collection by Alessandro Michele.
By the looks of the just-released pre-fall campaign, shot by Glen Luchford and styled by Jane How, Alessandro Michele is still gleaning inspiration from birds of all sorts, as a flock of pale pink flamingos takes center stage in the images, nearly outshining a crew of up-and-coming faces that includes Nicole Atieno, Polina Oganicheva, Lia Pavlova and more.
Set inside a glass, tropical aviary filled with wild plants — an homage to Gucci’s flora-and-fauna-based prints — models mingle with the creatures wearing pieces that play into this nature motif: flower-print suits, dresses embroidered with butterflies and ladybugs, loafers adorned with snakes, etc.
Of course, in true Michele fashion, there’s a heavy geek-chic element provided by the piles of vintage books, as well as the mismatched furniture and rugs throughout that have become brand signatures in recent seasons.
