Oh My Gucci! He's done it again.
An exclusive look into the Gucci FW17 Collection
Cast into Alessandro Michele's world of mystery, nature, and fantasy, the Gucci FW17 collection takes us deeper into the realm of avant garde fashion than Gucci has ever gone before. The collection, which debuted on February 22 in Milan, was unveiled in Gucci's first ever show combining men's and women's looks...
Shot in the picturesque town of Freeport, TX, directors Nina Hawkins and Alan Ballesteros, along with photographer Caroline Fontenot collaborated with Hues of Man to create a stylized retelling of the story of the most notorious criminal duo in American history. “Bang Bang” re-imagines the story of Texas’s very own Bonnie and Clyde, a couple who went on an infamous spree of murders, robberies, and heists in the 1930s. Bang Bang reunites Hues of Man and Josh Robertson, as well as the models from the Revival of Gucci project. New York City fashion influencer and consultant Alyson Cafiero stars in the central role as the enigmatic Bonnie, and Hues of Man stars as her partner in crime. Pieces are from the Gucci FW16, Cruise 17, and Gucci Ghost Collections.
The Trouble Gang
The Trouble Gang, played by Josh Robertson, Joey Garcia, Erik Tjon, and Tucker May, rule the town dressed in Gucci’s and Trevor “Trouble” Andrew’s Gucci Ghost collaboration. The collection is a wild amalgamation of street and high fashion, bringing graffiti art influences to the Gucci brand. The men were styled to convey a rough, urban confidence.

As I sifted through my personal clothing rack of Gucci clothing, I wondered, “How far can I really take this stylistically?” The Italian powerhouse has been making waves in the fashion industry with its reinventing approach towards fashion, and especially with the menswear line where genderless apparel is welcome...
I first started HuesOfMan based on the idea of highlighting diversity in our world through fashion. Whether it be people, style, patterns, or colors- I always sought to include these themes through the blog. Now I'm taking it a step further by highlighting one of the few people I look to daily for fashion inspiration. Who is it? It's @RoiWilly.
I discovered him on Instagram (through our love of Gucci hehe) and felt connected to his diverse sense of style and his interpretation of menswear. Read more about Will below!
It's been awhile since Houston has had a full blown fashion week. With the absence of Fashion Houston and only little pop-up events here and there, the city seemed to be warding off any attraction on capitalizing on the art and fashion industry. That all ended this past week when Matt and Kara Swinney of Fashion X launched the first ever FashionX Houston...
When you first think of Texas, a few words come to mind: horses, cowboys, oil, Beyoncé...?
But when it comes to fashion, it's a missed topic that few pay attention to in the Lone Star State. However, that has not been the case lately with the efforts to Matt Swinney and his team at Fashion X....
A Glimpse Inside the Gucci x Gucci Ghost Launch at NYFW in NYC
Normally, you have to be a fashion journalist, a celebrity, or a major client to get into these types of events. However, someone at Gucci showed my blog and Instagram to Gucci's North American corporate headquarters, and they wanted to show their appreciation for my work and my loyalty to the brand. Along with the invitation, I was notified that I'd be getting the VIP treatment, with Gucci generously paying all travel and lodging expenses. I was also told I would get to meet Trevor "Trouble" Andrew, the brain behind Gucci Ghost, one of the hottest fashion collaborations of the year....
A Look into the Liberation of one of Italy's Most Iconic Fashion Houses
After a departure from the modern silhouettes, sharp lines and European jet-setter styling that have been their trademarks for years, Gucci went in a new direction with Creative Director Alessandro Michele, who took over in 2015. Gucci's latest offering can be considered the first that Michele has built from the ground up...
he brand new SAKS FIFTH AVENUE- Houston opened its pearly white gates of high fashion heaven last Thursday, April 28th and luckily, I got the chance to slip away during lunch to take a peek at the scene- well to really take a peek at the brand new Gucci boutique that came along with it! So, after fighting my way through Wertheimer traffic and walking among the crowds of eager shopaholics and River Oaks moms...I found it, the fresh, out of the box, brand new, etc, etc. Gucci boutique in all it's glory...
Another year, another successful Fashion week in Austin, TX. FashionX Austin's AFW16 started on the 15th of April with a full on launch party, brunches, and weeklong soirées at various boutiques across the city in support of the budding fashion community in town...
