16 Ways Gucci Alessandro Michele Creative Director Inspires Today’s Fashion

Alessandro Michele Altered What We Wear Today

Alessandro Michele is the man behind the feminine layers, crushed velvets, flowers and furs that made us all so Gucci in 2017. You may not own a piece of Gucci but every brand from Forever 21 to H&M to Zara plus other “name brands” have knocked on Gucci’s door for inspiration in 2017.

Why do we love the look of Gucci?
I’m a die-hard maximalist or so they say, yet I don’t like “a lot” or let’s just say I don’t purchase “that much”. However, if they made shoes in my size, or if I weren’t sooooo hard on my purses, or if I could fit in the couture, I would be soooo Gucci!

Comment below if you have any items in your wardrobe that resemble any of the photos below.

1. Got anything millennial pink? Thank Pantone and Alessandro Michele for listening.

I mean I’ve painted two houses millennial pink way before it was cool but I do love that women (and men) are finally into PINK! And I hope it never goes away!!!!

2. Do you have shirts, jackets, dresses or skirts with ruffles, bows, or brooches?

3. Have you added fur to your shoes or bought a pair of shoes lined in fur or with fur adornments?

When my mom and I were in London having tea in Harrod’s, we saw a lady crossing the road in these and honestly we thought they were bedroom slippers! And that’s how comfy they are!!!

4. What about lace and mesh overlays with embroidery for your tops?

I have picked up a few great mesh overlay tops from Forever 21, Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Shein, and a couple of other online stores. Even stores on 5th Avenue in Wynwood. (FYI. Our 5th Ave. is not THE 5th Ave. but there are some cool things.)

6. Oversized flower brooches and hats. | Gucci Style

Brooches make great add-ons to create this look. I’ve added brooches to several jackets shirts to get this look and people always comment.

7. Got any studmuffin shoes yet? | Gucci Spike Heels

Several brands make great look-alikes although I think Valentino was the originator of the spikey shoes. I could be wrong. If so, let me know. Nordstrom and Nine West make great alternatives if the Gucci price tag is too much.

8. The eye of the tiger. | Gucci Tiger Button Suit

Tigers are cool and their faces and paw prints were all over fashion in 2017 and I don’t see that changing too much.

10. Staffordshire dogs have always been in, but they had somewhat taken a backseat. | The Gucci Staffordshire Tweed Suit

I don’t have anything with a Staffordshire dog on it, but I did add dog statues to Casa Wynwood.

11. Soft faux leathers. | The Gucci Staffordshire Tweed Suit

Have you noticed that there are several awesome polyester fabrics coated with a light metallic that resembles leather? I a couple of pairs of vintage True Religion jeans that have this sheen. If you’re looking for really inexpensive jeans with the sheen check Macy’s department store in the Juniors section.

12. Say it out loud! With words..tell the world exactly what you’re thinking.

We did. We will. And this trend will most likely be even stronger in 2018.

13. Red, white, blue, Gucci grosgrain ribbon reign!

We have America, Great Britain, France, Cuba, and several other to thank for this the color trend but stitch a perfectly mitered corner of a striped grosgrain and you could be sooooo Gucci!

14. Spread your tail, show your colors, ladies. | Gucci Peacock Fur Coat

Peacocks are in and any colorful hues of teals and greens which appear to be here to stay. I just wonder if we all realize that we’re wearing male peacocks? The females aren’t as pretty but I guess that’s what us ladies are for, huh?

16. Snakes and insects.

Like them or not, snakes are in. If you’re truly afraid or think they’re straight from the devil, please note that almost everything medical-related contains snakes and no one is abolishing those. Wonder why? Read this.

Christi Tasker
Christi Tasker For more than 10 years, Christi Tasker was a nationally acclaimed award-winning retailer and interior designer. While she treasured and nurtured her gift boutique and interior design company, she ultimately discovered her true passion – MARKETING and BRANDING! With an eye for detail that only comes from a skilled and experienced designer, Christi learned the secrets to creating a clear, concise brand – one both unmistakable and unforgettable − that would stand out from the crowd. The interest in marketing and branding for businesses actually had its beginning in her family. As did many devoted moms, Christi shadowed her then eleven-year-old daughter, Macy, whenever she ventured online. On one particular day, Christi had an epiphany as she watched Macy scour MySpace for any news in the virtual world of “Webkinz.” Christi placed an order for those lovable furry friends, with their special codes for use with online games, and when they arrived, she shared the news on MySpace, not knowing at the time that she had crafted her first social media campaign. When the college gates went down on Facebook, Christi immediately became one of the first non-college friends of Facebook. And more than just a casual user, she quickly discovered a side of Facebook that only programmers knew about – The Facebook Developer − full of options and tools to help companies better use the web. Christi quickly recognized that marketers either needed to be formally educated about social media or needed a partner to manage their sites. She launched a social media marketing company, which today provides social media branding, strategy, monitoring and training worldwide. Before long, she realized her ability to keep up with her many social media accounts was hampered by the lack of a suitable tool to keep everything in one place. Christi decided the best way to do a job properly was to “do it yourself” and developed PuTTin’ OuT (Socially Accepted) a set of tools to moderate, manage, create, schedule, and publish content, and automatically engage people, all in a single package. In early 2009, Christi began traveling nationally as a social media expert speaker for various brands and businesses, and today is a sought-after social media keynote speaker at the foremost conferences worldwide. she also appears on NBC as a social media advisor/expert.
