As you may remember, I’ve got an affinity for 90s runway looks, but I can’t stop dreaming about a certain collection lately- Gucci Spring Summer 1996. The wet and disheveled hair, the smokey blue eyeshadow, the extreme low cuts.. THE LONG CORD CHOKERS, I die. It’s just, so so vampy and perfect.
I literally had a dream the other night where I recreated the bottom left look and someone was snarked towards me “Ew, WHAT THE FUCK is that” and I whip around and say “It’s Gucci S/S 96, bitch”. Sometimes I’m amazed by my subconscious haha.
Although this is certainly ‘a look’, I absolutely plan on bringing it into 2014. Although this collection was from ’96, I feel like it was pretty forward for it’s time. It felt like a lot of foreshadowing for the later years of the ’90s, but even more so the early 2000s (which is about to come in strong, just fyi).
