Gucci Is Striking Back for Women
This week, Gucci showed it’s Spring 2020 Resort Collection and lets just say that they are standing up. As many already know, Alabama passed a ridiculous law that made abortion illegal. The collection showed pieces like the one to the right that stated “My Body My Choice”. In the wake of these times, it is nice to see that brands aren’t closing their eyes and forgetting.
Besides this, the collection was heavily 70s inspired with flowy dresses, bold printed suiting and oversized eyewear pieces - something Gucci has been doing for some time.
The New Marc Jacobs
If you grew up in New York City, early 2000s, you remember the Marc by Marc Jacobs brand. Why ? Because every teenager had the colored bags going out on the weekends or going to school in the week. It was a thing. Back in 2015, Jacobs closed the lower priced brand because even thou it was extremely successful, he believed that it no longer went alongside the brand image of Marc Jacobs.
After the closing, the brand slowly started introducing more lower priced items within his RTW collection, which makes way for the current collection “The Marc Jacobs”. Launching this past Thursday, he used his old archives and inspirations to create this new modern look.
