Alessandro Michele showcased his latest Gucci collection in a cramped operating theater set, introducing one of the label’s most off-kilter collections to date. A host of quirky accessories complemented the looks, which were all boldly detailed with everything from Gucci’s signature florals to logos from Paramount Pictures and the New York Yankees.

Opening with chunky sneakers and “NY”-branded suiting, the expansive array only got more unconventional as it progressed. Early on, two models strode the runway carrying sculpts of their own heads — a sign of the bizarre items to come, which included an iguana and baby dragon. Still, the strange creations never overshadowed the actual clothing, which varied from massive denim coats to high-waisted shorts with extended linings. Male models wore dresses and turbans while their female counterparts donned half-balaclavas and oversized plaid blazers. Floral accenting was seen printed on shirts and embroidered on gowns and coats, with a host of silver necklaces, chainlink belts, gold earrings and metal-rimmed glasses all offset by the wide array of foot and headwear.

The aforementioned Paramount Pictures and Yankees logos appeared everywhere, from red, furry-armed shirts to loose houndstooth coats. Similarly, colorful balaclavas supplemented an assortment of looks, which ranged from enormous layered dresses, jackets and sweaters to comparatively understated green suits. Despite all of the outré gear, monochrome looks occasionally broke up the runway, including a black skirt and jacket set dotted with silver buttons. Naturally, the styling played with proportions; it contrasted tiny shorts with boxy blazers, draped knee-length sweaters over baggy chinos and broke up a flowery ensemble with a strappy backpack.

Check out looks from the collection above and some close-ups courtesy of Gucci’s Instagram account below. Keep up with our continuing Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2018 coverage, which includes Christopher Bailey’s final show.
