Models walk down catwalk holding their heads. Whoever thought that would be a fashion statement in 2018.
Not sure if the applause is sarcastic or genuine, either way, it’s troubling. In the latest high fashion runway gimmick, Gucci had its models hold replicas of their heads as they strutted in several thousand dollar outfits.
In announcing its Fall/Winter 2018-2019 collection, its creative director, Alessandro Michele, had heads created in the image of the models. According to Vogue, the heads took six months to make using molds of the models’ heads.
The runway was decorated to look like an operating room (where people have their heads chopped off?) Why didn’t Gucci hire ISIS?
Attendees at Milan Fashion Week posted their comments with pictures on social media.
Marc Goehring added clapping hands emojis to his comment:
Another, used lightening bolts to suggest how electrifying the performance was:
Perhaps Gucci should talk to the thousands of Christians being persecuted for their faith and beheaded. If they were really trying to replicate an operating room, wouldn’t there be blood on their outfits? Or would that be too much damage to their clothes?
Instead of wasting time and money over a period of six months on HEADS, why didn’t anyone tell Alessandro Michele that this was a bad idea?
It appears that Alessandro Michele might need more than an operating room to figure out what’s wrong with her head.
