The OnoBello.com Fashion and Style Department is doing Show Reports on some select designers showcasing their latest collection this season.
According to a review by Vogue’s Sarah Mower, excepts from it reads:”Alessandro Michele makes the past live in the present. You can take that as a very obvious face-value commercial fact: He’s the fashion resurrectionist who resuscitated Gucci with his stupendously successful vintage-retrieving design formula. But there’s something more than that. When you go to his shows, you really feel shadows being spirited up. His Resort show this summer was literally a walk among the dead of the Roman Empire in the Alyscamps necropolis; seeing girls trailing long dresses past fire on that night produced some gulp-making moments.
An earlier show revealed his fascination with the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Tonight, Michele took us down to another layer of history: Le Palace in Paris, the hallowed ground of a late, great ’70s and early-’80s club in an old theater in Montmartre. People came here to meet lovers and friends . . . to experience this never-ending night. “Everything is a bit dusty here, a bit abandoned, but beautiful,” he said. “But this place is full of life. The models could have been coming to the nightclub.”
Cue glitter and Lurex and fringe, ostrich-feather showgirl fans, a pair of jeans cut like chaps with chains as suspenders (worn beneath a perfectly straight tweed blazer), a bedazzled jockstrap worn outside white tailored trousers, and a couple of boys in underpants, one of them a pair of Y-fronts in GG-logo canvas. Well, yes, that listing does labor the sybaritic sex club emphasis a bit too much.”
