World Gucci marks 100 years with exhibit on Michele code-breaking
Kitsch or elegance: an exhibition on the Milan Memphis Style
Who would have thought that a single meeting can create a new design style? The story of Memphis style is one to which few believed and still reflected the mood of the time at that time. Milan, 1981: A group of industrial signs and architects comes together and organizes a party. But no one is left out, all are tired, tired and bored.
FLORENCE, Italy (AP) — Alessandro Michele has radically shifted Gucci codes and challenged fashion norms in his 6½ years as creative director of the brand founded by Guccio Gucci as a travel bag company in Florence 100 years ago.
To mark the centenary, Michele has curated an exhibition in the Gucci Garden gallery, on Florence’s Piazza della Signoria, that underlines some watershed moments in his era. Those include an advertising campaign for perfume featuring a transgender model, an all-Black cast for the pre-Fall 2017 campaign and a lipstick campaign featuring everyday faces in all their imperfections.

We wonder if she's wearing the little Gucci dress.Victoria Beckham gave off serious Spice Girls vibes in her latest Instagram post. In the pic, the singer-turned-fashion designer rocks a little black dress as she holds up a peace sign. Beckham was known to sport LBDs during her time in the girl group, with it becoming her signature look.
The 48-year-old designer credited CEO Marco Bizzarri, who tapped an unknown Michele from the Gucci design team to take over as creative director in January 2015, with allowing him leeway to go beyond the usual schemes driving the luxury business model.
“No one would have wanted, we can say it, a transexual in the world of beauty,” Michele told reporters Thursday in Florence.
How observability gives developers the right amount of complexity
Commentary: A great developer experience requires working with both simplification and complexity-embracing development tools, says Akita Software CEO Jean Yang.This is the argument Jean Yang, founder and CEO of Akita Software, makes, and she's right. Even as the industry keeps coming up with new ways to simplify development through low-code or no-code tools, we also need to keep an eye on things that give developers the complexity they need to do their jobs well--one example is observability.
He said the campaign, featuring Hari Nef, Petra Collins and Dakota Johnson walking through a field of wildflowers, proved conventional fashion world wisdom wrong by creating “an absolutely up-to-date female imagery.”
“If fashion and the fashion market want to continue to have a stage, there needs to be some sort of movement. That campaign, in a very gentle and very poetic way, gave space and voice to a world of very different femininity,” Michele said.

Likewise, Michele said the casting of only Black models in the 2017 campaign was at the time a breakthrough, noting that “things have changed in a dizzying and very fast way in the last year.”
The pandemic year has been a year of collaborations, including with North Face, and Ken Scott and Doraemon. A tie-up with Balenciaga will reach stores later this year. Gucci revenues rose 20% to 2.16 million euros in the first quarter of 2021 compared with the same period last year, Women's Wear Daily reported.

Michele’s eclectic style, which has gone a long way toward mainstreaming genderless codes, especially for men, has created a sort of tribal following. Dubbed the Gucci Gang, Michele has fully embraced the power of that very distinct crowd during his pandemic year collections, which have been unveiled as digital presentations.
Those collections include this year's “Aria” that ends with the runway cast converging dreamily in a garden, to “Ouverture” last November, with videos by Gus Van Sant featuring an Italian actress moving through a rarified Roman landscape with her Gucci tribe.
Prosecutors Play Videos Believed to Show Mollie Tibbetts Jogging, Car Allegedly Used in Abduction and Killing
Authorities say these surveillance videos obtained from a Brooklyn, Iowa home in 2018 helped them crack the case of who killed Mollie Tibbetts. The post Prosecutors Play Videos Believed to Show Mollie Tibbetts Jogging, Car Allegedly Used in Abduction and Killing first appeared on Law & Crime.Logan Collins, who now lives out of the area, said he called the authorities and voluntarily handed over video that he hoped would help locate the then-missing 20-year-old college student who disappeared while jogging on July 18, 2018.
Michele said the brand’s real-life fans defy easy description, ranging in age “from 10 to 90.”
“It has happened that someone who could be my mother’s age greets me, or that Marina Cicogna (an 86-year-old film producer) tells me, ‘When I go in the store, I find crazy things,’" Michele said.
"It is strange because (we) also manage to dress someone who is 13 years old. Not only: Yesterday a young person stopped me who had a tattoo that said “Blind For Love,” and it was not the first,” Michele said, referring to one of the popular slogans that have adorned his creations.
“Evidently it was a strong detonation of something that already existed,” Michele said of his collections. “Fashion has the great capacity to interpret and to collect what is happening now .... to narrate the exact moment."
