If you haven’t noticed, Gucci is the “IT” brand this year! Under the new creative direction of Alessandro Michele, the style of Gucci has gone from predictable and classic to unpredictable, eclectic and exciting. Michele is a genius at mixing prints and patterns and colors and textures. He calls his work “fake vintage” and washes many of his fabrics to give them that perfect patina. He is inspired by his own vintage collection and melds those ideas with the more classic, traditional Gucci of old to form his truly unique collections.
Michele says, “I’m very inspired from the past, I’m not interested in the future—it doesn’t exist yet—but I’m really interested in the past and the contemporary. My apartment is full of antique pieces, but I put everything together like a modern installation. I love couture, but the other side of me loves the street, and I think the mix of these two can create something new.”
And, new it is, it’s magical, like a garden.

Join the Shoe and Tell Link Up on Style Nudge every Monday to share your favorite shoes, old or new, shoes you own, or shoes you wish you owned. Feature just your shoes or share with us your entire fabulous outfit, shoes and all! Anyone can link up, not just bloggers.
Every Monday I feature a pair of my shoes and tell a little bit about them. Shoes make the outfit and who doesn’t love shoes. Shoes have a story to tell, like where you were when you bought them, what event you were at when you first wore them, who you were with when you wore them, etc.
To join the link up follow these steps…
2. Feature your entire outfit or just your shoes.
