Everybody will be talking about GUCCI’s embroidered denim jacket this season. And not only because Rihanna wore it recently in Los Angeles. The object of desire is from the brand’s pre-fall 2016 collection.
Personally speaking, I am anyway deeply impressed by Creative Director Alessandro Michele. With his appointment, the Italian House has gone to new strengths. Everywhere you look, you see the brand’s must-have pieces, on the streets or on many celebrities.
Embellishments, especially in the form of embroideries, play a very distinctive part in Michele’s collections. This denim jacket comes with a mix of birds, butterflies and flower applications. My favorite is the back where a huge tiger head graces the jacket along with the printed phrase graphics “l’aveugle par amour” which translates to “love is blind“. That, paired with a shearling lining, makes the piece an instant hit and will for sure turn heads this season.
