Since his first collection in 2015, Alessandro Michele has profoundly transformed the image of the house of Gucci, tilting it towards the eclectic world of saturated colours and prints.

The Autumn-Winter 2018-19 collection features a series of silhouettes like so many personalities: from the Mexican wrestler to the cyborg, from the 1940s femme fatale dressed in velvet to the Russian babushka, her head covered with a printed scarf.

This dress was inspired by the 1980s. Unlike many of these models, the outrageous prints give way to emerald green pleats, and the fluidity to the triangular shoulders projected on the sides.
