Alessandro Michele: “It is not easy to live in our time. We need to dream”
I want to make a mini-revolution in the company – to introduce a new creative language, a new way of expressing beauty and sexuality.
Now sexuality means sensuality.
Starting work on the first collection, I was guided not by fashion, but by the sense of beauty that I wanted to reveal in such old and charming brand as Gucci.
It is not easy to live in our time. We need to dream.
Sex – this is not naked physiology, but also a little bit of intelligence.
The style in clothes reflects your feelings, your way of life, your literary preferences and views. That’s the point I’m trying to invest in Gucci brand.
My only dream in life is to be a bit like my father, because he was a really happy person.
I adore couture, but a part of me likes streetstyle – I think, from their combination something completely new can be born.
Coming to New York and London, I admire the courage of youth: for them there are no prohibitions.
I am not interested in the future: it does not exist yet. What really attracts me is the past and the present. My apartment is full of antiques, from which I create modern ensembles.
