Men’s Folio Picks From Gucci Fall/Winter 2017 – Exclusive From Gucci Hub

Gucci’s Alessandro Michele has wowed the fashion world again with the release his Fall/Winter 2017 collection, ‘The Alchemist’s Garden: an anti-modern laboratory’. The brand’s first amalgamated men’s and women’s show had 119 looks in total, two-fifth of which was head-turning menswear. The theme? A magical, breathtaking world of flora and fauna, with botanist sketches and scientific names of insects, wildlife, and plant specimens. Emphasis is placed on research in fabric techniques, featuring jacquard with more patterns and materials than before.

Take a quick skim at the designer’s Instagram gallery and you’ll find that he is obsessed with the formal gardens of Italian and English country houses, Renaissance paintings and classical sculptures, Jared Leto, and dog Bosco. No doubt they are the inspirations for  his latest designs. Men’s Folio’s Editor Ian Lee had an exclusive look at the collection up close at Gucci Hub in Milan and here are some of his favourites.
