Gucci votes ‘remain’: Italian house celebrates UK with anglo-themed cruise collection
Both Christian Dior and Gucci chose English locations for their resort 2017 shows this week — with the later taking over London’s Westminster Abbey on Thursday evening in a historical fashion first. Creative Director Alessandro Michele went all-out ‘rule Britannia’ on the collection, which ticked all the nationalistic style boxes, sweeping from dreamy printed floral silks to tartan kilts and Union Jack bomber jackets. Michele was thorough in his sartorial homage to the nation — the collection drew inspiration from the country’s punk era as much as it did its Gothic Victorian heritage, its penchant for clompy Nineties boots and elegant garden party dresses — “When I think about London I think about gardens, beautiful gardens filled with flowers,” he says.

Dior Cruise: a love letter to England
Post-war high society fashion was the inspiration behind Christian Dior’s 2017 cruise collection, so it was only fitting that the show took place on Tuesday evening at Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Winston Churchill and current residence of the aristocrat the Duke of Marlborough. Designers Lucie Meier and Serge Ruffieux, responsible for leading the French house’s creative team, injected the show with an element of wanderlust, while simultaneously portraying the English countryside and its traditions through flashes of hunting red, rustic tweeds and crisp poplins. There were grand structures, in the form of full sleeves and gathered peplums, with tight basques and draped tea dresses referencing founder Christian Dior’s original ‘New Look’ silhouette.
