Maroon isn't the first colour that comes to mind when we shop for clothes. It doesn't have the same 'go-to' status as black and white, nor is it trendy like millennial pink and rose gold. But one thing's for sure, it's a shade that's flattering for Asian skin. The deep hue in contrast to our yellowish to brown skin colour brings out the radiance in our complexion. It must be why it's a favourite among our Community members.
In 2015, Alessandro Michele became the creative director of Gucci and the 96-year-old iconic fashion brand got its cool, modern revamp. Suddenly, we were seeing an assortment of vintage pieces with an eccentric and vibrant touch to it grace the runway. Sleek leather shoes gave way to fur-lined footwear and pussy-bows became the new tie. Alessandro's first collection was the bridge between the classic and the new Gucci.
Fast-forward to today, Gucci has once again solidified its place at the forefront of fashion innovation. Aside from the fashion elites and enthusiasts, Gucci is also frequently seen donned by popular male celebrities lately. One of them is the Korean boyband, BTS, who is known for their eclectic songs and dynamic choreography.
Speaking of boy bands, Harry Styles of One Direction fame, is doing his solo act this year. And with it comes a noticeable change in fashion choices. In his world tour, he's seen in a very flamboyant ensemble with Gucci floral-printed suits and classy loafers. As you can see, Alessandro's vision of the new Gucci is very evident in Harry's current fashion. It's vintage reimagined for the modern man.
