Gucci’s Alessandro Michele and the rebirth of the logo
With his eclectic and flamboyant aesthetic, Alessandro Michele has not just made Gucci the most in demand brand in fashion; he has altered the entire fashion landscape. After canada goose outlet online uk years of pared back, Cline style minimalism, Michele’s new Gucci champions a maximalist approach: ruffles, frills, prints, layers, a cacophony of colour all of which both critics and consumers have welcomed with Canada Goose sale open arms.
Discretion was the minimalist’s buzzword; anonymous, logo less handbags replaced the heavily branded “it bags” of the Nineties and Noughties. Logos became fashion’s anathema. In swinging the fashion pendulum towards flamboyance, Michele has also re embraced the logo, resurrecting canada goose coats the neglected double G motif of Gucci’s 1980s heyday and reinterpreting it for a modern audience.
“Logos still touch and talk to customers, but https://www.bamschaatsteam.nl fashion is an industry of the new, and if you rely on a logo because of your heritage, you’ll get left behind,” said Marco Bizzarri, Gucci president and CEO, speaking at the New York Times International Luxury Conference last month. Bizzarri explained how Michele has breathed new life into the retro monogram, making it “an ode to joy, not something worn Canada Goose Jackets by the devil”.
In a way it cheap Canada Goose was surprising that Gucci’s new direction is led by an emblem from the past. One of Bizzarri’s first moves when he was appointed as CEO in January 2015 was to remove all the historical images from the walls of the company’s Italian design offices. canada goose outlet in usa “If you canada goose outlet reviews are constantly canada goose outlet parka inspired by the past, how can you do something modern?” It was a move questioned by many of his 11,000 employees, he says. “Everyone thought I was crazy. But I wasn’t trying to erase the past, but relate to it in a different way.”
Bizzarri needed to find a creative director who shared his vision to “make Gucci an iconic fashion house again”. Instead of cheap canada goose choosing a high profile name to follow in the footsteps of Tom Ford and Frida Giannini at the helm, Bizzarri appointed the relatively unknown Michele, who’d worked as an in house designer at Gucci since 2002. An initial coffee meeting turned into a four hour lunch, and as Michele discussed his vision for the future of Gucci, Bizzarri began to realise canada goose clearance “maybe we have the right guy here at Gucci already”.
After being appointed creative director in January 2015, Michele famously had just five days to create the autumn/winter men’s collection, with the women’s show a month later. “We threw away the collection goose outlet canada prepared by Frida Giannini and created a show in five days,” says Bizzarri. “The only way to communicate our Canada Goose Parka future strategy was via the catwalk show.” The double G monogram made canada goose outlet sale an appearance in belt buckles in canada goose outlet jackets those first shows, and since then Michele has run with the theme, featuring it on accessories and clothing alongside other Gucci house codes such as the equestrian bit and red and green stripes. Statement made: the logo is back.
“I saw it as a rebirth of the double G logo,” said Michele in a video interview shown at the conference. “In the past, Gucci has been official canada goose outlet a bit ashamed of its logo, but it should be proud of it as an canada goose outlet emblem of 95 years of history. The logo is an incredible powerful asset for Gucci and it should become as desirable as a leather bag.”
Importantly, Michele takes a playful, almost irreverent approach to the Gucci logo, daubing it with flowers or pairing it with cartoonish motifs Canada Goose online in accessories that appeal to canada goose black friday sale a younger demographic. “I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the logo,” said Michele. “It’s like drawing on the Mona Lisa. The double G is like a hieroglyph that everyone knows and I use it as the cherry on top of my designs.”
It was a risk and opinions were divided at first but one that paid off. “Alessandro had complete creative freedom, within the framework of the brand,” says Bizzarri. “The way he played with the logo was a big success. We sold 600,000 products from the new collection and attracted half a million new customers.”
In line with this spirited new approach was Gucci’s decision canada goose outlet nyc to partner with New York graffiti artist Trouble Andrew for autumn/winter 2016, inviting him to tag coats, bags and skirts canada goose outlet with his counterfeit ‘Gucci Ghost’ GG. “Social media offers a huge opportunity to interact,” says Bizzarri. “The Gucci Ghost partnership played out over Instagram and Snapchat. It allows us to evolve the logo and give it modernity.”
The logo then is alive and kicking at the house of Gucci, and given the brand’s current status as the hottest label in fashion, it might be time canada goose coats on sale to wave goodbye to anonymity. “The logo is not over, but it needs to find ways to evolve,” concluded Bizzarri. “It requires a playful, spontaneous approach you need to treat it in a lively way.”.
