    A phantasmagorical Gucci show could certainly not outdo the queen when it came to front page fashion news, but designer Alessandro Michele certainly did his best.

    Transformed into a cartoon hued operating theatre, with Nick Cave on the front row, the dark and unsettling so-called ‘Cyborg’ theme only continued when some of the models wandered in with an exact replica of their heads tucked under their arm.


    If we were meant to be looking at their clothes it was difficult. Swept into Michele’s drama this was a show that questioned identity – how and who constructs it.

    Not that the pieces weren’t, as ever, incredible. Fast-forward a few months and say hello to backless trainers – you saw it here first. These are just a few of our favourite looks and accessories from the Milan Fashion Week show…

    The pussy-cat sweatshirt


    The plaid and print combo

    The bejewelled dad trainer


    The oversized bum bag


    if you’ll excuse us, we’re off to prep for all of these trends.
