Uniforms, utilitarian clothes, normative dress, including straitjackets, were included in the Gucci Ready To Wear Spring/Summer 2020 in Milan
The most extreme version of a uniform dictated by society and those who control it. These clothes were a statement for the fashion show and will not be sold.
Alessandro Michele designed these blank-styled clothes to represent how through fashion, power is exercised over life, to eliminate self-expression. This power prescribes social norms, classifying and curbing identity.
The Creative Director’s antidote is seen in the Gucci Spring Summer 2020 lineup of 89 looks, he has designed a collection that conveys fashion as a way to allow people to walk through fields of possibilities, cultivate beauty, make diversity sacrosanct and celebrate the self in expression and identity.

Alessandro went in a way different direction! I applaud experimentation.
