It was all Hermaphroditus Gucci for AW19. Through the mask of androgyny allowing us to be who we are. Appearance and reality. Kinda vibe from the show notes. A sound track of snarling hungry wolves intro’d us to the dark side of thinking; bright lights; a mirrored amphitheatre. What did it all mean for the passionate Gucci customer – some new tailoring; a looser silhouette, volume; that vintage vibe singing strong still with loads of expert detail: a fine ruff neck a little bit Elizabethan; jewelled crosses; a touch of tartan; a kilt; and papal lace worked so many ways. Among the steady stream of unique looks evening gowns heavy with fringing added a decadent glamour for these hunted ones. No kill thank god no blood, but lots of masks part of an ongoing dialogue around gender that Alessandro Michele has pursued since he first arrived at Gucci four years ago. Wiki tells us: In biology, a hermaphrodite(/hɜːrˈmæfrədaɪt/) is an organism that has complete or partial reproductive organs and produces gametes normally associated with both male and female sexes. At Gucci we can have it all.
