Today we’re walking you through how Gucci design god, Alessandro Michele rocks fall’s bold bomber jacket. Because the man is nailing it.
When it comes to wearing Alessandro Michele’s Gucci IRL, you’d probably be better off looking at the designer himself rather than at his off-the-wall runway shows. That’s because Michele does what most style gods do: He picks out one or two bold items and keeps everything else in his outfit real unpretentious, classic, and cool.
Case in point: His treatment of fall’s statement bomber coat doesn’t involve some next-level man-blouse-and-bell-bottoms combo. Instead he wore it with beat-up straight-leg jeans (the kind your dad wears), a rumpled white T-shirt, and some Italian-guy jewelry.
Italian fashion house Gucci has gradually been moving away from their traditional ethos towards a new adventure of reimagining how the brand DNA is employed. And one of the key witnesses to that is this Gucci Appliquéd silk-satin bomber jacket that turns the label’s iconic red-and-blue web stripe into a rip collar, cuffs, and hem. It retails at a whooping £2,890 (almost 1,200,000 NGN).
The jacket caught the attention of Nigerians when dancehall superstar, Wizkid performed at the 2016 Rhythm Unplugged concert wearing one. Cut for a regular fit, this bomber jacket was made in Italy from green silk-satin and decorated with colourful dragons and striped ribbed-knit trims.
