Check out round two of the #GucciGram Project, celebrating Gucci’s Tian print. In this series, Asian artists have interpreted the Tian pattern, which literally translates as “sky” or “Heaven” which Gucci illustrated with a flower and bird. “#GucciGram is a starting point to tell different stories, which are all united by a great freedom. Today creativity is often born and finds its voice in digital media, vital source of visual culture.” Alessandro Michele. This campaign is running on all Gucci’s social channels and on Gucci’s website, see more here.

Milan is upping it’s game this season and Spring/Summer 2016 runway was filled with an abundance of rich, decorative prints and an inspiring variation on trends from the designers, who were not always following the norm. Take Prada for instance who went out on a limb and gave us a bit of everything going, a mash-up of seventies wallpapers to mid-century modern, it all came together in the usual sophisticated Prada way. Gucci also went for a mixing pot of ideas from oriental to expensive vintage with just the right amount of frills and decoration. Etro with their usual affinity towards textiles brought a romantic folk look to the fore, where beautiful embroidery prints took centre stage in delicate silhouettes. Catch Milan Part 2 later this week and the Paris Shows next week.
