Gucci Resort 2016

The best thing about resort collections is that they, at least in theory, represent a vacation. In today's world where "resort" no longer means just the beach, it's not unusual to find clothes fit for all sorts of activities. And where might the Gucci-girl be heading for her travels? The clothes speak her answers. She portrays most a chic nerd in the city, whose idea of a day off is a day spent in the corner of  a library. But don't think of your usual, dowdy librarian. The Gucci girl is vibrant and expressive. She prefers interesting patterns and textures over minimalism, but obviously knows when enough is enough. The glasses that frame her face weren't just thrown on, they were planned. That's a major fact about the Gucci girl: she's well thought out. What she wears isn't what's displayed and styled at the stores, instead she shops and thrifts around for key pieces and then styles them using her well-trained creativity. That is the girl that Gucci creative director, Alessandro Michele has created. He's made a persona, an image, and every new collection is her wardrobe for that season. That's really how it should be, but then there's brands whose image changes with each new season. Gucci is reliable to look a certain way, while still looking fresh.

This collection looked to the 60s for inspiration, a glorious era for the Gucci girl to live. Rich colors, smart tailoring (smart, not sharp), and ornate details make up this collection. Every look that could possibly be interpreted as more sexy than smart is grounded with a pair of thickly rimmed glasses. The Gucci girl is fun in a serious way. She has a smart style, but she also knows how to have fun, or at least dress like she is.
