Off the Runway: Gucci AW 2018

One never knows quite what to expect when Gucci takes to the runway. The Italian house’s autumn-winter 2018 collection was no exception, with Alessandro Michele turning heads quite literally sending a handful of models down the runway carrying replicas of their own heads.

Staying true to Michele’s signature, a clash of prints, cultures, elaborate embellishment and adornments collided to create one out-there collection that is definitely for those who aren’t afraid to break the fashion rule book.

The Gucci AW 2018 collection is available in-store and on the New Zealand e-boutique site now. Click here

Louis Vuitton sends Stranger Things down the runway

When the cast of hit Netflix series Stranger Things – which happens to return for a second season this month – were spotted hanging out with Nicolas Ghesquière at Louis Vuitton’s headquarters last year, it became obvious the house’s creative director is an avid fan. Ghesquière’s fascination with the sci-fi show came to life once again, this time on the catwalk in Paris as part of Louis Vuitton’s Spring/Summer collection as model Sora Choi donned at Stranger Things tee.

The nod to science fiction didn’t end there however, with Ghesquière sending a handful classic pieces with a futuristic looks down the runway – which was staged inside the medieval wing of the Louvre. But it was Ghesquière’s new take on athleisure wear that really dominated the show as the creative director paired chunky basketball sneakers and slinky sports with ornate brocade detailing in regal silhouettes.

Take a look at some of our favourite pieces from the collection below.
