Its been on my list forever. Time to pull the trigger?

runway // gucci reinvention.

Posted on January 20th, 2016

The Alessandro Michele era is full force at Gucci and yes, the industry continues to buzz about it. Its nothing new, a reinvention of a brand, but how he is doing it is what continues to fascinate, what Hedi has done at Saint Laurent. For me, its how he will ride the wave once the 70s revival is over, and how to up the quality (which is a whole other discussion)..

 

I’ve been eyeing it because more and more, I have been craving color. I have always loved color, which people find hard to believe. I just don’t wear it often. Bill Cunningham said that fashion is armor. Black is my armor, especially in New York winters. And there is a part of that Steve Jobs/Mark Zuckerberg uniform mentality in my head that makes dressing easier in the mornings. But since traveling to SF and LA before the holiday, I’ve been bitten by the California bug, and nothing has been more appealing than whites, tans, blues and ALL OF THE COLOR (also, the talk and signs of a recession and the upcoming elections are really drab). So its no wonder that Gucci has all of my attention. A beacon of freedom to dress how you want no matter what era, gender, occasion.. and there is a very strong point of view that sets it apart from all the athleisure/sellable collections hitting every single runway. When in black, its about going incognito, but when I want to express myself and be free, I’ll turn to Gucci.

Melrose Place has been one of my favorite streets, even before Alfreds Coffee, Chloe and APC moved in to make it one of the hottest retail block in LA. Isabel Marant, The Row and the newly opened Apartment by The Line are oases in the LA shopping scene. Also high on the list: Ten Over Six, Just One Eye and Rick Owens on La Cienega. Any others I should add to the list?
