The sign of a confident and secure designer is one who acknowledges the strengths and triumphs of their predecessors. If you were into fashion in the mid 1990s, then there would have been no avoiding Tom Ford’s first collection for Gucci and its luxe and louche velvet suits. This collection was almost as significant as Dior’s New Look in 1947 at catapulting a brand into the spotlight. Tom Ford’s Gucci was sexy as hell.
Over 25 years later, and in Gucci’s 100th year, designer Alessandro Michele has paid homage to this pinnacle of the Tom Ford’s Gucci era and it's looking as timeless as ever. Though it would probably be cheaper buying a 90s original from a vintage seller or auction, not to mention a better investment.
