Alessandro Michele has done it again. From making Gucci cool again since 2015, Michele has constantly upped the ante with every new season. The Gucci Spring/Summer 2018 collection is no different.

After giving you an extensive selection of holiday gifts worth giving, for Spring/Summer 2018 Michele took inspiration from the 70s glam rock era. One especially profound inspiration was taken from Elton John’s archive of stage clothes from that era. But looking back in time is not all that Michele is good at.

The Gucci Spring/Summer 2018 campaign “Utopian Fantasy” is illustrated by Spanish artist and illustrator Ignasi Monreal.

Reeling in trendy millennials, the Gucci Spring/Summer 2018 collection features a healthy dose of streetwear fashion matched with feminine and high fashion pieces. Take for example, the Gucci Cities sweater matched with the Ophidia medium top handle tote — slouchy and structured.

So, update your wardrobe in turn with the new Spring season. These 10 key pieces will ensure that you stay on top of your fashion game come what may. The best part? The Spring/Summer 2018 collection is already available in Gucci boutiques now.

Linen jacket with "Spiritismo" appliqué

Inspired by the men’s collection, tailoring also became a strong point in the women’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection. A nod to the classic houndstooth print, turn this linen jacket around and the modern side takes over. A metallic leather “Spiritismo” applique adorns the back, giving a modern touch to women’s tailoring.
