In the spring-summer 2020 season, Alessandro Michele continues to amaze. But this time, not with hand dragons, copies of heads and crosses, but with a sharp change in the mood of the collection. The Gucci show began with 21 looks in pure white, each of which looked like a variation of a straitjacket.

How to understand this prelude? In a press release, Michele says: “Fashion has a function: to allow people to go through the fields of opportunity … sacralize all forms of diversity, and acquire the necessary skills for self-determination.” In subsequent images, the designer clearly demonstrated what he had in mind.

It is no exaggeration to say that as a designer, Michele is one of the most influential figures in the industry, if not the most influential force. He went from a minimalist to a maximalist and made the world fall in love with vintage of all ages, strange colors and prints, logos, brilliance and gender neutrality. Nowadays, Gucci is an adjective, and even children recognize the green-red-green stripe when they see it in public on the street. And even a look as eclectic as the one Michele formulated for the brand, after a while becomes a uniform.

Gucci creative director is trying to avoid this in every possible way. In the new collection, Michele's eyes shifted. There were many surprises. For example, the predominance of black, which Alessandro usually avoided. Also in the lineup there are significantly fewer prints: instead, the designer used graphic color blocking. Typically, the Italian prefers quirkiness, so the deliberate presence of sexuality was the biggest shock. Lace inserts, black vinyl chokers, cheeky cutouts and defiant cuts. It seems that on the eve of his fifth birthday as a creative director, Michele decided to break free.
