Gucci Cruise 2019: Bad, Bold, and Holy

By Eliza Jordan

June 1, 2018

This week, Gucci presented its Cruise 2019 collection at Les Alyscamps in Arles, France. Designer Alessandro Michele’s bold styles—ranging from Marie Antoinette-like looks to dark-and-devious details—proved the house’s dedication to daring style and diversity. But the fashion wasn’t the only highlight.

Set in the Roman necropolis, the show began with an ignited line of fire down the runway. Full of ancient references, the setting provided an unforgettable backdrop for the new collection’s debut.

Down the runway, we saw over 100 looks—some house signatures, and some complemented with veils, capes, scepters, carried bouquets of flowers, or Catholic crosses. In the show, Michele also included fellow designers as models, like Harris Reed, and showed bold details in styling, like jet black lips, tight curls in hair, and updated half-shell earrings four tiers long. Accessories didn’t disappoint, with the inclusion of new backpacks and purses, sunglasses, scarves, shoes, jewelry, and more.

As culturally significant as its ancient atmosphere, the fiery new collection raises religious flags and calls for fashion praise.
