Within a hall of illusionistic mirrors at the Gucci Hub in Milan, Creative Director Alessandro Michele presented his latest collection, Exquisite Gucci. In his notes on the show, he wrote, “I use the metaphor of the magical mirror to approach the phantasmagorical power of fashion. A sacred power that radiates from the surface of the fabrics. And there I work, on this tactile surface, through cross references, alterations, loopholes and grafts. Juxtaposing worlds and meanings. Altering the stability of perception. Manipulating and magnifying the existing. Through these interventions, I celebrate the clothes as real optical labs: magical machines that can give birth to fairy tales of metamorphosis and re-enchantment.” #ExquisiteGucci #MFW
