Alessandro Michele‘s shows for Gucci have become the event of the Milan collections precisely because, even if his eccentric bohemian aesthetic is firmly in place, you never quite know how he’s going to spin it. For spring, he drew from William Blake’s Songs of Innocence and Experience to present a collection that was wild with color because, as he explained, “color is the soul of fashion.” Accessories were again strong, with devotees likely to freak out over the platform sandal-boots and ivory-colored fans embroidered with the phrase “Blind for Love.”
