With creative director Alessandro Michele at the helm, Gucci‘s collections have tastefully transformed from monogram-heavy fashion to classic silhouettes exuberant in colorful and youthful designs. This month Michele gave a triumphant presentation for Gucci Cruise’s show at London’s Westminster Abbey (with a women’s show scheduled for June 2) that revived the line with a distinctly British aesthetic. “The men’s Cruise collection was an excellent occasion to best depict my idea of eccentricity. Everything started from my great passion for England. I tried to describe what’s going on in my imagination, which often embraces an aesthetic very similar to the English one,” said Michele. Pairing different textured tweeds and wools, the collection is rich with loud primary colors and intricate embroidery detailing across posh schoolboy sweaters and crisp tailored suits.

British art photographer Nick Waplington captured the spirit of the collection by using the Victorian backdrop of the home of the late Isabella Blow, an eccentric English magazine editor who was also known for discovering Alexander McQueen. “Photographing this collection in this setting brought together some of the best aspects of Britishness. The clothes evoked the golden age of late-’60s/early-’70s bohemia, Hilles House [the name of Blow's estate] embodied a kind of aristocratic majesty, the weather was an ideal mix of spring sunshine and showers,” says Waplington. View our favorite looks from Gucci Cruise’s latest collection above and head over to Vogue to view the shoot in full.
