“Boys are girls. Girls are butterflies. Boys in crochet… who knows?” – @craigtinker

Alessandro Michele is a genius.

As Gucci’s Creative Director, he has rekindled romance for passionate lovers of style notes from the edge.

On Day 3 at Milan Fashion Week, in the sparse, industrial setting of Scale Farini (a former railway station), colour block gel lights flooded the runway. Michele’s collections have been wildly applauded by all who were previously jaded (read: bored, with standard good taste), among them mainstream fashion commentators, and independent style obsessives from the united states of EVERYWHERE!

With resounding success, Alessandro Michele rolled out dapper 70s quirk in glorious fashion, bringing pussy bows, ribbon ties, yellow-lensed and blue tint sunglasses, floral flares, motifs and appliqué of parakeets and pineapples with glitter sandals and lace shirts.

It wasn’t only the romantic seventies mood in the shapes of the garments, but the refreshing colour palettes and mix of textures.

The astonishing forward stylings of neckwear for men, deserves its own mention – peach rosette collar details, upturned collar frills, boldly patterned shirt bibs, upturned broderie leather chokers and rhinestone bow ties!

The Garb Wire favourites included the red appliqué floral power tracksuit, the crochet short suit with appliqué butterfly and anchor detail, antique rose appliqué on pink butcher stripe fabrics, crochet capelets, and the entire collection of contrast coloured loafers.
