Taking its radiant, eccentric designs and adding a preppy flair, Gucci’s Pre-Fall 2017 lookbook offers a new direction from the fashion house. The brand’s decadent and surreal style helmed by creative director Alessandro Michele remains prominent, though the collection gravitates toward vintage, Oxford styles, an aesthetic upheld by the lookbook’s Victorian manor backdrop. Characteristic of Gucci, nothing is understated, with rich colors, knits, and kaleidoscopic suits embellished with vivid imagery of dragons, animals, UFOS, and flowers. Accessories are a focal point, featuring a plethora of oversized bow ties, scarves, and hats. The collection is an impressive feat from the brand, a successful merging of the avant-garde with timeless elegance.
