A Nautical Summer with Gucci SS17

As the summer sets into the bright and bustling NYC, I’ve been inspired to explore the city by Michele’s eccentric and vibrant concept of travel. You see, you don’t necessarily have to hop on a plane or boat, your environment can simply change with your imagination be it a book, a simple change to an environment, or in our case, articles of clothing. The power of wearing the current Gucci collection emphasizes the use of imagination to transport one into time periods or far off destinations.
For my look, I wanted to depict the nautical theme of a sailor, one who explores the worlds unknown. I styled the outfit utilizing a mix of pieces from the mens line starting with blue vintage inspired trousers, a printed jacquard waistcoat, gel sandals, a sailor cap, and to top things off, crystal glasses and the Gucci fan, a staple from the SS17 runway shows.
Utilizing fashion in this way reminds us just how creative we can be when finding inspirations for style. It’s about the power of the look and its ability to emulate our deepest thoughts to make our imaginations more tangible. So like the many great explorers, go out there, explore and play in the lush and abundant world of fashion.
