Gucci goes west
It was Hedi Slimane that first rebirthed the lace up style for his witch coven collection at Saint Laurent, and since then it’s grown more and more relevant within the fashion lexicon. This season Alexander Wang gave is a very cleaver sports angle with a literal sneaker interpretation, but this collection from Gucci is my favourite version to date. Oh so seventies with a beloved nod to California, the suede, denim and lace pieces were perfection and very much reminiscent of Phoebe Philo’s golden days at Chloe. So shall we call it now? The lace up neckline is a hallmark trend, and that lace up denim dress – a defining look of the season.
