10 retro trends we loved at Gucci's latest show

June 09, 2016 12:03 IST

The Italian fashion brand's latest collection brought back lost trends into fashion.

For the first time, this iconic London landmark Westminster Abbey opened its doors to a fashion label.

Paying tribute to the British art and culture, creative director of Gucci Alessandro Michele launched the label's winning Cruise collection in this 700-year-old church.

In the past, the Westminster Abbey, has been the setting for 16 royal weddings.

And it has also witnessed every coronation since the time of William the Conqueror in 1066. Interesting much?

Going back to the collection, we think that creative director Alessandro Michele took the 'maximalist' approach of designing one step further.

From rich colours, lavish embroideries to meaningful layers, the collection had it all.

We present 10 trends from Gucci's latest show.

The colours and patterns have changed, but the look -- a studded animal print jacket with a floral embroidered hoodie over a frilled midi instead of the red outfit and a structured bag in lieu of a basket -- pretty much resembled the character. Photograph: John Phillips/Getty Images

IMAGE: Plaids got wild and how. That cheetah print in the middle of the tube gown looked quite interesting. We thought of naming this ensemble as the 'Time to Pounce' dress. Photograph: John Phillips/Getty Images

IMAGE: There were cool and classy stuff too. Like this navy blue midi with a Gucci logo belt around the waist. Wear it with lace stockings, high heel sneakers, a black box clutch and a striped cap. Photograph: John Phillips/Getty Images

IMAGE: We couldn't take our eyes off this gorgeous golden pleated mini with a Gucci sweater over. Also, is wearing flip-up glasses the new 'cool'? Would you dare to wear it? Photograph: John Phillips/Getty Images
