Milan Menswear Fashion Week 2015 - Gucci

Gucci men's fall winter 2015-2016 debuted, during Milan Fashion Week, sans former creative director Frida Giannini, who was ousted from the brand earlier last month.

Giannini's exit from the storied Florentine fashion house was announced last month by the French owners, Kering, which said she would leave after showing the men's and women's collections for autumn and winter 2016. No reason was given for the change of plans. Gucci's press team on site Monday called the decision to redesign the collection from scratch "a new chapter."

A team of young designers, led by head accessories designer Alessandro Michele, came out and took a collective bow, to sustained applause. Gucci said a successor to Giannini would be announced "in due course."

The latest menswear collection was definitely an update for the brand. The look was significantly more androgynous than the label’s previous menswear shows, thanks to a slew of ’70s silk neck tie tops, a sheer lace shirt, fur jackets with cropped sleeves, and even a few ruffled collars. The collection was designed under the direction of Gucci’s head accessories director, Alessandro Michele.
