Gucci continues to be one of the most fascinating stories happening in fashion and culture today. It encompasses all the details of a good fairy tale - rags to riches, rescue, wizardry. It also represents something deeper going on in popular culture. There's so much more to get at why Alessandro Michele's designs are so appealing to so many people, particularly consumers 35 and under, who haven't been spending on traditional luxury brands goods. They are the holy grail for retailers, and they now account for 50% of Gucci's sales.
So glad I had the chance to write about Gucci in May's WSJ. Magazine.
Honestly, I've never witnessed a fashion show like the one Dolce &Gabbana created in Milan for Fall 2017, so I wrote about it in The New Yorker. It was chaotic, it was adorable, it was courageous. I'm sure they never want to go through that again. Or maybe they do.
