Continuing his narrative at the helm of the house of Gucci, Alessandro Michele fled Milan to present his SS19 collection at Paris' iconic Le Palace. Having succeeded in finding the glory of reviving vintage in the modern age of fashion, Michele continues this season with a dramatic runway full of unpredictable prints, saturation, and beading and pleating galore.

Using an operatic sound to accompany his newest collection, a most elegant parade begins as the spotlight cues the start of the this auditorium staging. The familiar present Gucci is alive and well as models donning garments screaming in color and shape file down the orchestra seating and finding their way onto the stage assembling an ensemble of sorts. An abundance of textures and fits layered one on top of the other keep the keen attention of the overseeing house as glimmering fringe, leather briefs, strawberry printed pants, and Dolly Parton emblazoned garb catches the masses eyes. The lineup of tailoring in this one-act performance ranges from classic suiting and sequin tuxedos to acid washed denim and finely pressed dress shirts.

Constantly striving to create multi-layered collections that can't be singularly defined, Alessandro Michele imposes his creative nature on thriving with glamour, wit, absurdity, and one could say elegance. Choosing Le Palace as a location to add to his roster of Gucci moments definitely secures his 11 o'clock number both in the fashion industry and his influence of the greater cultural landscape.
