Alessandro Michele has long championed the frilly attitude of fashion, what with his abundant exploration of all-things colorful, eccentric and opulent creativity. But the House’s Creative Director has instilled the Spring-Summer 2018 collection with a whole lot more than what meets the eyes – literally.

Fine executions and sophisticated details come alive in a series of unique eyewear, all of which embody the eccentric spirit of Gucci. With colors as enchanting as magic and shapes as mystical as ever, the collection beams with a certain elegance brought up to very “vintag-y” proportions. Call it the Gucci effect.

His creativity has indeed reached new heights, taking the fashion scene through the joys of bold proportions, visionary masks, classic shapes and heart-shaped styles with colorful multifaceted lenses.

Gucci’s futuristic designs have always harmoniously blended with bits and pieces of the retro world – think nods to the seventies and the eighties in the best kind of way. And so, this particular collection holds essentially true to this statement, offering fun and unexpected details from here, embellished jewels from there and a whole lot of shimmers from everywhere.
