Gucci Garden: Gucci’s Online-Only 2016 Capsule Collection

It’s no secret that designer Alessandro Michele is fond of all that comes from the botanical world. From purses to clutches to foulards, when it comes to prints he loves to showcase all the beautiful gifts we got from Mother Nature. No wonder why, for his Gucci Garden online-only 2016 capsule collection, he took all that one may find in a beautiful and colorful garden just to put it in an appealing array of designer pieces that will only be sold exclusively online via Gucci.com (starting from July 5th).

Gucci Garden: Gucci's Online-Only 2016 Capsule Collection

In the wake of the success of Gucci’s first-ever capsule collection in collaboration with Net-a-Porter (the collection was sold out in less than a day), Alessandro Michele took the time to design a new range of limited-edition pieces to test whether the label’s new website is equally successful and appealing or not. The Italian luxury house’s website got a makeover back in October last year, to better reflect the fashion designer’s visions of fashion.

As for the Gucci Garden 2016 collection in and of itself, it has been exquisitely designed with the sole purpose of pleasing and treating its onlookers. All these capsule pieces are here to take us out on a chilling date or on an outing with friends, reading and relaxing under a tree’s shadow.

Romantic and cheerfully colorful, the collection has it all, from varsity jackets to sneakers, from pleated A-line skirts to mules and sweaters. Everything is meant to be layered and played with, and will surely appeal to those, who like Michele’s way of intertwining completely different patterns and geek-chic styles with one another.

Although exuding Gucci’s signature sophisticated style, the Gucci Garden 2016 capsule collection is not only ready-to-wear, but also features pieces that are closer to street style (a multi-colorful kind of street style) rather than haute couture. From reversible zip-up bombers to shorts, the entire line-up elegantly veers towards a younger audience, playing with stars, snakes, flowers and colorful contrasting hems.

There are, however, also essential wardrobe staples that won’t fail to make anyone stand out of the crowd with their simplicity. Try combining one of those pleated frocks with any of the line-up’s maxi-cardigans, for instance! As a result you get an effortless chic look that will show off your unique personality.

As for the accessories, Alessandro Michele translated the whole ‘Gucci Garden’ concept to the iconic Dionysus bag, which comes in three different sizes. There’s a zip-around wallet too, which is probably going to be the first piece to fly off Gucci’s online shelves very quickly.
