Shopping Bag: Kitsch Is Cool

Backstage at Gucci Fall 2016.Everything's Gucci.
When Alessandro Michele took the reigns at Gucci, he ushered in not only a new era of the brand but an entirely new sense of cool. From the beginning, his nods to Wes Anderson classics like The Royal Tenenbaums, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and Moonrise Kingdom brought kitsch to the forefront of style, with luxe furs paired with retro patterns, oversized glasses matched with vibrant red berets, bold embroidery, and exaggerated florals. Artful layering is a key component of the Gucci-look, and tongue-and-cheek cartoons like the ones Michele snuck into the jacquard suits at his Men's S/S17 show are a must. Whether you call it "nerd chic" or "granny cool".... either way this trend is here for the long haul.

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
