In a clear digression from its Brit-punk infused Cruise collection where Britain's melting pot cultured was realised in all its kaleidoscopic splendour, Gucci's Spring 2017 Menswear show was a worldly, multicultural myriad of geek-chic and historic-looking Chinese silks.
In lieu of the bees and snakes showcased in their Cruise collection (those snakes were still present, but to a much lesser extent) were dragons, tigers, lobsters, and even a rabbit - riding a dog. Oh and Donald Duck, because at this point, why not?
We are as people becoming a better, more well-travelled civilisation and Gucci inspires all of us to see the world and pick n mix influences, nuances and styles along the way.
The two standout looks for me are below. The first a heavily embroidered suede overcoat complete with tattoo-like koi carp details and not forgetting Donald Duck himself. The second look is the leather jacket I am now clinically obsessed with. It looks worn, vintage, but the leaves are so rich with emerald life, a beautiful contradiction.
