Front Row @ Gucci Spring 2018

Posted by Rachel Watkins

As we might expect, the front row at the Gucci Spring 2018 show on Wednesday (September 20) during Milan Fashion Week was awash in a head-turning mix of bold prints and bright patterns from the label.

Dakota Johnson:
Starting the front row off with a bang, Dakota easily had one of my favoured looks in this colourful, pleated dress. I love the retro-forward, geometric print and the alluringly artsy mix of hues. The dragon-embroidered bag wouldn’t have been my first choice, though, for this look as it seemed so disparate from the mod mood.

Salma Hayek: Salma’s dress stood out for its prominent lack of pattern. But, it still charmed with the modern-Victorian lace detail and girlie bow at the waist that was very much in keeping with the star’s style.

Li Yuchun/Chris Lee: Never one to do fashion by halves, the entertainer presented a full-on fashion experience here. The cape may have been ‘Blind for Love,’ but I for one, don’t know where to look first between the Gucci signature print T-shirt, intricately patterned skirt, knee socks, and booties—not to mention the ear muffs. This was a performance piece, if nothing else.

Charlotte Casiraghi: Taking a far more minimalistic approach, Charlotte let her floral skirt do much of the talking, with petal-pink Mary Janes enhancing the blooms.

ASAP Rocky: Presenting a twist on the track jacket, logo joggers, and white sneakers, ASAP Rocky played it cool with his look that oozed with stylish rapper appeal. Naturally, a furry coat was just as important as a few chain necklaces and oversized shades to complete the picture.

Soko: Venturing to the land of the logos, Soko rocked the double G from head to toe. The sweatband and silver platform shoes are likely the elements that will raise the most eyebrows.

Tamu McPherson: This look may have possessed nothing short of a granny-chic mood, but there was still a certain quirky charm to the mismatched, caricature jumper and patchwork skirt. Plus, she gets bonus points for matching her glasses to those on her sweater.

Bryanboy: What makes Bryanboy’s fashion-forward ensembles work so well is the attention to detail and tailored precision. Everything from the shrunken military jacket to the oversized, tunic shirt and floral pants fit to a tee, with the cross-body bag and embellished shoes contributing plenty of additional yet appropriate eccentricity.

Tina Leung: The shiny magenta colour and cheeky swirled collar and sleeves are hard to forget on this frock. So, you may likely remember that Salma Hayek wore it earlier this year. I do think it presents better with more minimal styling—meaning a small handbag and more streamlined shoes. But, this Gucci front row was no place to play it safe.

    Dakota minus the bag. She makes it look effortless which Gucci isn’t these days.

    Dakota looks ravishing. The bag is bulky but I understand it for a daytime look. I love it when someone works patterns this well.

    Dakota, Salma, and A$AP Rocky look great. Charlotte looks okay. The rest range from ridiculous to absurd.

  16. Pheephee September 21, 2017 at 1:53 am #

    I LOVE Dakotas dress! Usually hate pattern but wow, she makes it look good. Agree about the bag sadly.
    The rest are no to huge NO’s.

  17. Caroline September 21, 2017 at 1:43 am #

    Hate Gucci.

    • Maria F. September 21, 2017 at 11:49 am #

      i totally agree. I get headaches from all the pattern and colours. Nothing soothing about it.

      I actually find it very try hard and too cool for school and I do not care if that shows me as not trendy or fashion forward.

        I remember all the Gucci premiere dresses and then this and it’s like…
