Gucci's Alessandro Michele took his Resort show to the Pitti Palace in the brand's birthplace of Florence, Italy. The collection was everything we've come to expect from the maximalist creative director: historical references, florid embellishments and plays on counterfeit culture.
Shopper bags, which first debuted at the brand's fall 2016 show, were once again emblazoned with tongue-in-cheek slogans.
Intricate hand jewellery harkened back to Michele's Renaissance inspiration for the season.
Pearls were abundant, and made up "helmets" or were simply threaded through models' hair.
Turbans, now a brand signature, returned. This leopard-print topper was finished with a miniature cithara, an ancient string instrument.
A bag made for crazy cat ladies.
A Gucci fanny pack seems long overdue. Is this the next It-bag?
Models carried laurel-leaf crowns, and the cithara served as a hand accessory.
Small monogrammed bags were worn cross-body, on a shortened strap.
Some models had their fingertips dipped in black ink.
A ’70s bow blouse mixed with a Renaissance-inspired star headpiece in the kind of mash-up of eras we've come to expect from the new Gucci.
Nerdy-girl glasses, a turban and an oversized flower brooch—all the markings of a Gucci girl.
