Snakes, birds and flowers took center stage among a kaleidoscope of motifs at Gucci’s womenswear show, with designer Alessandro Michele transforming clothes into “psycho-geographic maps” for the Italian fashion house’s spring/summer 2016 line.
Models strutted down a catwalk, itself printed with flower and snake designs, in chiffon and printed silk tops and dresses, some of them bearing trompe l’oeil ruffles and large bows.
Ancient Egyptian imagery was also printed on some of the collection, which mostly featured colorful flowers and animal designs — birds, fish and snakes on trouser legs.
There was also a nod to the 1970s with bowl haircuts, gold gloves worn under large rings and angular leather handbags.
It was Alessandro Michele’s second womenswear collection since taking the creative reins at Gucci.
