It seems that, after one glamorous resort show is over and done with, another big-time name in fashion comes down the runway and dazzles us all over again. And that’s exactly what happened on Monday night when Alessandro Michele, Gucci’s creative director, unveiled his chic and luxe resort collection for the 2018 season.

First, before we go into the clothes themselves, a bit of background about the show. Originally, Michele aimed to have the resort show at the Parthenon (he had Athens and Greece on his mind, but unfortunately, Chanel beat him to it). Instead, however, Michele settled for the Palazzo Pitti in Florence, Italy and we’re glad Gucci ended up in Florence this year instead of elsewhere.

The Palazzo Pitti in Florence, located nearby the infamous Uffizi Gallery, once belonged to one of the most powerful Renaissance families in Florence, the Medicis and still, the Palazzo Pitti retains some of their power and grandeur, making it perhaps an even more perfect setting for Gucci to show off its resort wear.

Amid Jared Leto, Elton John, and Kirsten Dunst, Alessandro Michele unveiled a glitzy and glamorous collection that perhaps the Medicis themselves would wear today. Wreathed headbands, groovy 70s-esque prints, oversized glasses, and graphic tees of wolves and snakes graced the interior of the Palazzo Pitti, with some of our favorite looks sporting catchy, playful phrases like “GUCCY” and “GUCCIFY YOURSELF”.

Perhaps what was most eye-catching about Gucci’s resort show were its details, found on all of its 115 looks. Some wore stars on their hands and pearls wrapped around the frame of their face. There were embroidered socks and models with bright blue hair, a cacophony of color and texture that, eerily, all worked together.The show was loud and bright and refused to be put into any one category. Devoid of any particular political message, Gucci’s resort show was a celebration of excess and artistry—of youth, of the beauty that is fleeting and frequently sought after its loss.
