On Wednesday 30th May 2018 evening, Gucci became the third big-name, legacy design house to show its Cruise 2019 collection in France. For both Dior and Louis Vuitton, this presentation meant that the brands could stay a little closer to home: Dior’s respectful, rain-soaked ode to female Mexican rodeo riders was at Domaine de Chantilly, an historic chateau about 30 miles from Paris, while Louis Vuitton’s eccentric, ’80s-tinged parade took over the medieval town of Saint-Paul de Vence on the the French Riviera. Gucci, however, chose a different locale, the Provencal city of Arles; more specifically, at the Alyscamps, one of the most famous Roman necropolises of the ancient world.
Gucci has long had a lingering fascination with France: Just last week, the brand announced that, for one season only, it will skip Milan Fashion Week for Paris as a “three-part homage to France,” developed by Creative Director Alessandro Michele. But as evocative of or inspired by French history as Gucci’s Cruise 2019 range may have been, Michele isn’t wont to steer too far from the aesthetic for which he’s become known.
Set at 9:30 p.m. local time, the presentation was, surely per Michele’s expertise, quite eerie, yet another display of the brand’s now-recognizable gothic attitude and streetwear accessibility. This season, Michele was reportedly fascinated by “the idea of death” this season: The runway — which was literally, treacherously split by fire — was set along the Promenade Des Alyscamps, the avenues of which are bordered with tombs for notable citizens from 4 A.D.; the soundtrack featured choral music and owl hoots; and at least one model wore a doll-like sheer mask, you know, the kind that lovable, but deeply flawed bank robbers wear in a heist film.
