Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele is renowned for making something seemingly strange and mundane into a serious fashion statement. All you need to do is remember the time he sent replicas of model’s heads down the runway held in their own arms. Weird, yes. Genius, also yes. So when the brand’s autumn/winter ‘19/’20 show kicked off in Milan, we were ready for every wonderful accessory to walk down the runway, and oh were there a lot.
From fake tears underneath models’ eyes to a pair of dirty sneakers carried as a bag, the show was packed with intrigue. Sparkly, punchy and packed with personality, every Gucci look was more outrageous than the last. Perhaps it was the gold ear cuffs (that covered the entire ear) that took your fancy, or the branded, double G knee pads which were worn by brocade stockings and stilettos. Whatever your Gucci poison, it’s probably somewhere in this collection.
Below, we’ve rounded up the weirdest and the most wonderful of the accessories from the show, because Guccifying your life shouldn’t stop with your bag.
