Pink flamingos always fascinated me. What fascinates me even more is the new exclusive GUCCI collection for NET-A-PORTER. I am totally in love with the special 20-pieced line designed by Alessandro Michele and couldn’t help it but share it on Spotted Style with you. If you watch the video with the spotted model Odette Pavlova, represented by Next New York, you will find out why I am so obsessed with the new GUCCI treasures.
Since the Italian fashion designer Alessandro took the wheel of GUCCI’s board in 2015, I turned into a true fan of the luxury brand and I bet I am not the only one. The new collection is just another proof of Alessandro’s great talent and the important role he plays for the Italian fashion brand. He manages to keep the strong identity of Gucci, no matter the style evolution through the trend of the seasons. This can be seen in the iconic pieces and timeless beauty of the Dionysus bag. Same counts for the Ace trainers in their newest flowerish version.
Gucci’s iconic ‘Dionysus’ shoulder bag is printed with roses inspired by a 19th century tapestry – a defining motif of this exclusive collection from the brand. It is detailed with the label’s iconic tiger’s head spur closure and has three antique-rose canvas-lined compartments – perfect for keeping an array of essentials organized. Double up the elegant burnished gold chain strap for a shorter drop.
“For this special collection, I took a playful approach with our flowers and old tapestries. I loved the idea of bringing what I like to the NET-A-PORTER woman, to magnify my aesthetic and point of view through a collection. This is a real union of Gucci and NET-A-PORTER.” – Alessandro Michele
The video of the new capsule collection starts with the Russian beauty Odette Pavlova, dressed in pussy-bow floral-print silk blouse, printed with beautiful roses inspired by a 19th century tapestry and pleated floral-print silk midi skirt.
Other statement items which are part of the collection that go to our wishlist have special attention to the details. See the Leather-trimmed jacquard jacket and Jacquard mini skirt. This jade and pastel-pink mini skirt is cut from heart-patterned jacquard blended with touches of silk. The iconic web stripe trim sits at your waist and this piece is fully lined to enhance its A-line silhouette.
Between the floral motives and heart shaped print, we spotted elements of birds, denim with butterfly embroideries and the unique rose prints that can be seen on the Floral-print silk and wool-blend cardigan combined with Appliquéd silk-blend organza gown. Cut from swathes of wispy silk-organza, it has a nipped-in waist that’s framed by floral appliqués and a swishy floor-sweeping skirt.
These pumps below are some of the modern fashion icons, designed by GUCCI’s Creative Director Alessandro Michele. Printed with roses inspired by a 19th century tapestry, this pair is decorated with a bow and paneled with shimmering gold at the block heel.
And here is the Adonis floral-print silk-twill scarf, made from lustrous silk-twill detailed with the label’s ‘Adonis’ print featuring romantic muted florals and signature striped webbing. Wear it to tie back your hair or knotted around your neck. These were our favorite picks of GUCCI’s new fashion dream. What are yours? Shop the full collection in the link.
