The Gucci Comeback

Have you noticed lately that all the “it” girls have been wearing Gucci? I can’t go a day without seeing someone’s instagraming  their new Gucci Dionysus bag (no shame, that bag is gorgeous!). The funny part is Gucci lost traction in the fashion scene the last decade and just started to emerge again as a must-have status piece.

But then again, it is the era of second chances! Think about all the 90s revivals that happened this year. Gucci was bound to get a makeover. This successful makeover is attributed to the new creative director, Alessandro Michele. He definitely took the brand’s image up ten notches. Besides the vibrant colors he infused into the double GG line, Michele made a point to stay one step ahead. Partnering with graffiti artist Trouble Andrew to create the latest installment GucciGhost, is just one example.
