Could Gucci get any more British? The Cruise 2017 collection was Alessandro Michele’s ode to British culture and aesthetics. Rich in detail, embroidery and colour, the collection featured English garden flowers on diaphanous silk chiffon dresses and on bag handles; King Charles Spaniels on skirts and plush coats; and the Union Jack on knits and loafers.

“I love the English aesthetic; I feel it is close to my own language. The collection is like a little poem to London. I have tried to put into it some of the pieces in my heart when I think about London: Victorian, schoolboy, crazy young noble guys and some romantic punk,” said Alessandro Michele.

Music Credits: “Scarborough Fair“ sung by Schola Cantorum, the Liturgical Choir of The Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School, London.

Enjoy one of the best catwalk shows in recent history.
