The 13 Coolest Style Lessons We Learned From Gucci Cruise

The fashion world is still reeling from the Gucci Cruise 2017 collection, which showed hours ago in London. Creative director Alessandro Michele showed his collection at the cloisters at Westminster Abbey — a suitably holy place for what is now the style world’s most fervently worshipped brand.

All the hallmarks of the new Gucci were on display: Men and women walked the runway together in designs that often blurred gender lines. On display were frilly sheer dresses, granny-chic skirt suits, louche pajama-dressing separates, and more florals, pinafores, ruffles, and snake prints than you can shake a stick at.

And while not many people will ever hang a Gucci evening gown in their closet, thousands will continue to snap up the accessories that have become a must-have for fashion folks and wannabes alike. Already own the Marmont tote or Soho bag? Then time to add the new, compact shoulder bags or a ’70s-style hobo bag to your want list. Michele also served up an extreme new take on the Gucci loafer that’s sure to become next season’s sell-out.

As always under Michele, the Gucci runway is an explosion of kooky pairings, colors, and styling ideas — which means it’s well worth studying even if your budget won’t let you be a Gucci girl. Click ahead for the 13 coolest ideas we spotted on the runway today.
