Monsters, Lizards, and Heads—Oh My!
Gucci got all Game of Thrones on us this season. Creative Director Alessandro Michele continued his buzz-making reign, sending models down the runway with replica lizards, dragons, and severed heads. Weird? There’s no doubt about it. But there’s something we love about knowing that we never know what to expect when Michele’s in charge—bring it on!
iRobot at Dolce and Gabbana
For the past few years, Dolce and Gabbana have been tapping just about every influencer, celebrity offspring, and young royal on Earth to walk in their shows. This season, those familiar faces were instead seated front row—a sure sign that change was afoot. After what was reportedly a 40 minute wait (and mandate that guests turn off their WiFi hotspots), out flew a group of drones carrying the brand’s latest bags. Now, how do we acquire one of these to follow us around and carry our things?
Tommy and Gigi Are Back
Tommy Hilfiger and Gigi Hadid teamed up for their fourth Tommy x Gigi collection, this time showing on a racetrack-themed runway in Milano. Athleisure was, once again, the name of the game and, as is to be expected, their runway featured just about every It-model imaginable.
Never a brand to shy away from theatrics, this season Moncler recruited eight “geniuses” who collaborated on pieces for the collection. With inventive interpretations from the likes of Simone Rocha and Craig Green, it’s safe to say that the puffer jacket isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, and we can’t help but love the ongoing theme of partnership and celebrating creativity.
