Get the Look – Gucci’s Cosmic Cool

If you ever find yourself wanting to escape the mundane, take a look at Gucci’s AW17 campaign video and for 1:15 minutes transport yourself to another time and galaxy. Produced by Glen Luchford, the latest branding triumph of the fashion power house celebrates Star-Trek as a cultural lynchpin of the seventies, not only in the theatrics but also in the major looks.

Both in the film and on the runway, Gucci presents bold and brilliant looks that resurrect the Renaissance by adding a cosmic spin. Glittery tights and patent trousers give an illusion of the star-studded night sky and a backdrop to asymmetric lightning bolt sunglasses. Floral jackets and capes, lined with oversized, angular collars and structured shoulders, transform models into extra-terrestrial, genderless beings who inspire all that is unearthly.

Other designers have been equally definite in placing their intergalactic mark on the runway. Models draped in ethereal silvers was the look at Yves Saint Laurent, whilst Balmain’s interstellar interpretation combined tribal tones and patterns.

So whether you’re following in Gucci’s retro footsteps, or keeping it simple with silvery tones and sequins galore, here’s some items that place futuristic fashion at your fingertips.
