Last season, Gucci decided to decamp from Milan to Paris Fashion Week with Alessandro Michele showcasing his Spring 2019 collection for Gucci in the French capital, in his third sartorial homage to France. In May, the Italian designer airlifted 400 guests to Arles in the South of France to see his new Resort collection, then staged the Gucci Spring 2019 show in the City of Love’s Le Palace nightclub, before concluding with a resort runway at the Alyscamps cemetery in Arles.
But for Fall 2019, the Italian house is returning to Milan Fashion Week at the third leg of the fashion month circuit. The label is set to present its newest offering at the Gucci Hub headquarters in Italy’s capital of fashion at UAE 6:00pm/5:00pm KSA today. And, you can watch the whole thing as it unfolds in real time here.
One of the most highly anticipated shows of the season — for Fall 2018 the designer sent out everything from baby dragons to models carrying replicas of their own heads — the show is not one to miss. Earlier this week, invites for the runway show went out, and instead of a traditional piece of paper with the show’s time, date, and venue, the designer chose to send out a papier-mâché mask of Greek God Hermaphroditus, enclosed in a rustic, wooden box.
“You’d be inclined to think the designer’s next chapter might focus on Italy – or Los Angeles, which has been the topic of other recent Gucci projects – but au contraire,” reported British Vogue. “Rumour has it that Michele intends to face the legacy of a cult British fashion magazine for this season’s inspiration.”
The Gucci Fall 2019 ready-to-wear fashion show will start today at 3:00pm Milan time (6:00pm UAE 5:00pm KSA).
