Gucci's new collections just keep getting better and better. Led by creative designer aka creative genius, Allessandro Michele since 2015, this new Gucci Fall Winter '20 collection is no exception.
Born in 1972, 70s style has always been a great influence for Michele. This collection sees a resurgence of the fashion worn by perfect little girls and their minders, nurses and nuns.
I was born in 1970 (I am admittedly one year older than Michele) and this collection has stirred up some very lovely memories of dressing up in my favourite navy velvet dress with shirring and ribbons. I remember wearing sweet little girl pinafores, one of which included my grey pinafore school uniform. I proudly wore my long prairie embroidered dresses with the prettiest of cotton materials, made lovingly by my mother, along with perfectly crafted knitwear and crochet, adorned with the most of darling of brooches. Yes, very fond memories evoked indeed.
The last time I posted on my blog, the world has changed dramatically with COVID-19. I do hope you are managing and keeping well in these strange and uncertain times. Let's hope in the not too distant future, we can all get back to doing "normal" things again!
Yours in style,
