The Art of Fashion: GUCCI 17/18

Glory art on the catwalk. No, we all may not wear it down Oxford Street, but I hope we do someday. Piecing the unusual styling which created a whole new sub-culture truly defined fashion in it’s art, something I believe the industry lacks often. Couture to Street often copies itself, therefore the other dimension is “too weird”, but when has being out of your comfort zone ever been normal?

For this show, I have never seen anything like it, the ethereal beauty in each carefully decided outfit that struts towards the camera – this is what we should be aiming to compete with. Alessandro Michele’s experimental patterns and put together’s is something else – give the world something to look at and be inspired by it. Appreciate the true reveal of art garments instead of looking for something to copy. Here are my top 12 favourite looks from Gucci’s AW17/18 show we should all take notes on.

Tears and exhaustion.

Two unusual words to describe London Fashion Week SS17 – not for me, but on behalf of others I encountered on a daily basis.

Do you ever wonder what happens before you watch your favourite model exhibit the Burberry dress down the runway? Well I’m about to tell you.

Fashion reads – RAF SIMONS CURATED BY TERRY JONES

raf-simons-book-2Never have I ever been captured by such an influential book. That’s how the game starts and I take 9 shots, one for every time I’ve felt inspired by the lines curated by Terry Jones.

 

A designer of aspiration combined with one of the best 2012 interviews by i-D presents the words of one of the best creators of our time, he talks his dark side, inventive and story. They call him a visionary, if I could think of a more perfect word I would call him more. Not just from elemental respect but from the insight the book has given me – the growing respect for purity and minimalism. Now prior his departure with Dior, a deeply sad and iconic memorial of the day, this book dictates a man that looked beyond every angle in a way only he could do so. From the beginning of his time as a Creative Director at Jil Sander to moving onto bigger things with Dior, this interview and book is truly something. Not only for the structure and text, but as well the images stay piercing, capturing and portray fashion carved by a God, the models, the clothes, Raf.
