Alessandro Michele presents his “womenswear” collection in Milan, toning down the collection, but still keeping its vibrancy through patterning. According to the Business of Fashion, Kering, the parent company for Gucci has reported an 8% sales increase in their last quarter. This can easily be tied to the groundbreaking work of Michele’s “Fake Vintage.” Quickly gaining on Hedi Slimane, Michele has broken ground from day one where he prepared a full runway show in five days to blow away Gucci’s PF15 collection. Kering predicted this growth in sales, but it was severely downplayed at 4.1% company wide growth. Specifically pertaining to Gucci, Analysts predicted only a 1.5% growth in sales, when their fourth quarter revenue reached as high as 4.8%.
Pertaining to this collection we see a continuation of the now famous kangaroo fur horse-bit slides, as well as beautifully tailored patterned suits, topped off with simple scarves or a bow.
You can expect Gucci to continue to grow in sales as long as Alessandro Michele is the face of the house, with the possibility of the House reaching the Tom Ford level of sales. If interested, you can purchase the kangaroo fur slides here.
