The backdrop, an early medieval structure, with a double portico and the runway featured three arches in Indian, Aztec and Egyptian styles. Surfaces in bubbled pvc and streetlights give a metropolitan feel.
The inspiration gathered from the historic monument of India along with the others in the backdrop specifically gave a larger message.
At hand, it seemed to be that you don't have to leave home to engage in some educational cross-culturalism as all the elements were right there, and the stage was a cross-cultural paradise reported Vogue.
When the first runway look came with models walking the ramp in the strobe lights, it was clear that this town has been thoroughly Gucci-fied according to Hollywood Reporter.
Designer Alessandro Michele's moderately priced dress shop selling sequin skirts for daytime was all about color and shine, and even Brunello Cucinelli's sublime subtlety felt the Gucci heat.
All in all the runway was a money spinner for Gucci.
Going by the picture, the sublime Spring/Summer 2018 collection was inspired by medieval sculpture, Roman literature, talismanic codes, 70s glamour and the garment went beyond the Gucci note referring to cross-culturalism.
Michele's moderately priced creations were Dramatic, Psychedelic, Retroactive, Colourful, and with Gucci SS18: Milan is in the midst of the metamorphosis of a mischievous genius reviewed Nouvelle Factory.
