  • Great shots – and the relaxed pared-back styling looks much more desirable than on the catwalk. Still a departure but not quite such a shock!

  • This juxtaposition of rusty, threadbare surroundings with luxe furniture and clothing is not new, it’s just new for Gucci. I do like the mystery in the posing and angles. It’s surprising how glowing the reviews for Michele have been. Is it one of those things where you have to see the clothes in person? What am I missing?

  • Like you, I am starting to “get it” too as to what they are doing at Gucci. So many fashion brands are always looking for the elusive cool “it” girl or boy of the moment, such as the Caras and Kendalls of the world. My first reaction to Michele’s first men’s collection was “oh, it is a young, rich, and super skinny couple who can borrow each other’s clothes…why not have my boyfriend wear my pretty sheer blouses and I could fit into his suits because we have the same androgynous body shape. I actually do love the clothes that came down the runway for both men’s and women’s fall collections. The mood of the new ads reminds of an apartment or loft that could be somewhere in Williamsburg or Bushwick.

  • Whatever ‘it’ is, I’m still missing it. Call me provincial, but to my eye, this looks not a lot different from Prada a few years back.

  • It’s funny, I didn’t like the runway collection, but I find those ads very artsy, beautiful, and entertaining as well.

  • I agree with Paula, it’s very Prada, kind of meh for Gucci.
    In this new world order of revolving designers we have to learn to ride the waves, but I’m not sure how sales don’t suffer when companies are training us to be disloyal to the brand image.
    Like the bags though.

  • Love this look and Julia Hafstrom (model) is superb for this campaign…
