Gucci Spring 2017 Ready-To-Wear Highlights

Can Alessandro go wrong? It doesn't seem like it. Every Collection he puts out is somehow amazing, fresh and new but still true to Gucci, with references from past seasons. It was so hard for me to only choose a few looks from the show, because I adored pretty much every one that walked down the red and pink star printed runway.

There were a few absolutely stunning dresses, and I'm starting off with this delicate, floral one with a huge black panel along the waist, which toughens up the otherwise feminine look. It makes the look less soft, which I Love.  I also 'love' the red 'lover' choker detail and the white and red popping out of the sleeves. Oh and the matching hand held mirror is beautiful.

I'm a fan of the shoes in the collection, but oh my god give the girl shoes that fit because that just makes them look super uncomfortable. That is probably the only negative thing I have to say here. Plus, everyone probably had their eyes on this gorgeous purple, gold, blue, green metallic coat. The colours are so beautiful and go together so well and I even love the little animal (fox?) belt. I also want to say that I need those glasses. They're so fucking cool.

The edwardian/victorian silhouette of the dress isn't to everyones taste, but personally I love it here, and the dragon print on the skirt is a plus. The almost tie-dye like pattern on the dress gives it the illusion that it's shiny and reflects light which is different but cool!

This look wins the award of 'most glittery' in the show, because from the layered pleated/ruffled top, down to the sequin socks/shoes, there is sparkle. And yes, it kind of looks like the pants have fins or something travelling down the sides, but it looks really cool. I love the colour, I love the layers upon layers of ruffles, I just really love this look and it's one of my favourites.

Ok, this pattern kind of looks like a curtain but at the same time it's amazing? Especially with the floral detail on the shoulders. You all know I'm a sucker for anything 70s inspired, and this just screams '70s' to me.

I'm usually not a fan of studs, but that jacket is so fucking cool. Yes, I love the skirt, and the red top, but the jacket is the reason I had to include this look.

Another one of the stunning dresses in the collection. This one is probably my favourite, I think. I love the colour and the shape of the dress, with the tiers of fabric falling down with gold striking out. I even love the little bow at the top.

Continuing on with the breathtakingly beautiful gowns, this was obviously another favourite for me. It featured the coloured sequins striking out along the neck of the top in pink, gold and green, but my favourite part of the dress is the almost rainbow coloured diamond, and the way the coloured sequin panels flare out in the skirt, contrasting with the sheer fabric.

Maybe my favourite look? I just love everything about it. From the vintage-looking graphic tee, to the printed skirt (which has the most amazing picture of insects, flowers, birds and I think those are snails too! It was illustrated by an artist called Jayde Fish, who created a few drawings to be turned into prints for the collection), and of course, the shoes. I would 100% wear this look, or at least love to style the pieces.

Firstly I want to mention that these shoes (the same as the ones from the above look) are my favourite in the collection. I love how the platform has a subtle floral pattern, and of course, the gold snake on the front. As well as the shoes, I loved both the top and the midi skirt with a mirror/circle pattern.

More 70s inspired pieces, something Gucci is kind of known for. I think I love with suit more than the curtain one simply because it's denim. The studs lining the edges and pockets take these pieces to a whole other level, as does the floral and bird details.

I'm totally digging the 'cool grandma' vibes of this look. While the shirt is super cool, and the jacket is clean and simple, my favourite thing is the green satin-y pants. Wide legged, high waisted, it's not a surprise that I love them.
The Gucci loafer has become a classic shoe that everyone either already has, or wants, and this is a really cool new take on them. They're a bit punk inspired, which you usually wouldn't use to describe a loafer.

There are jellyfish on this dress. Do I need to say more? The use of fabric to create the flowing, delicate tentacles of the jellyfish is amazing and a really cool detail. I keep saying 'the colours are beautiful' but they are! I love that shade of blue, which acts kind of like the ocean backdrop for the jellyfish.

First of all, the red latex (?) sock/heel is amazing, second, I'm loving the sporty vibes of this look, and, of course, the raw hems of the pants which are otherwise a clean, basic pair of pants. The shirt, which is usually a more masculine piece, is feminised a little with the sequin flowers on each side, that, in my opinion, really makes the piece something special. Oh, and my favourite thing is the bag with the fox head at the clasp.

I don't know why, or how to explain it, but something about this particular pattern and colour combination makes me feel super nostalgic? Honestly I have no idea why or what it reminds me of, but I love it so much. Isn't it weird how clothes and bits of material can make you remember things or feel a certain way? Anyway, I really love this look, it's obviously very bold and colourful but I would totally wear those pants.

Gucci never disappoints, which is why it's always a favourite of mine. Alessandro takes so many inspirations and influences and somehow mashes them all into one beautiful, fun, unique but cohesive collection. I don't really have to say that I love this collection, because that's pretty clear.
