Allessandro Michele in at Gucci

It’s the news that the fashion world has been waiting for. Amid swirling rumors and outlandish claims by the fashion media, Gucci has finally announced that its new creative director will be its old head accessories designer. Namely, Alessandro Michele!

After a considered and thorough selection process, Alessandro Michele has been chosen to assume the role as Gucci creative director, based upon the contemporary vision he has articulated for the brand that he will now bring to life, noted Marco Bizzarri, the president and CEO of Gucci.

Alessandro MicheleThe list of potential directors for Gucci was astounding, and set off a veritable feeding frenzy of rumors and scoops that turned out to be false. Tom Ford was the biggest name to be bandied about, but that one was shot down quickly by Ford himself as well as Gucci.

As for Michele, he’s been at Gucci since 2002. Next month, at Milan Fashion Week, the world will finally get a glimpse of he’s got in store. His first ever womenswear offering will be on full display there – should be a treat!
