It is a continuum already seen: it will be thanks to the Nineties revival that shows no signs of diminishing or it will be that this two-piece in red velvet is really good for everyone. The fact is that the red suit by Gucci is becoming a real time machine smash.
In fact, we spotted him on the stage of the Teatro Degli Arcimboldi in Milan on the occasion of the live One Night Show by Achille Lauro, accompanied for the occasion by the Magna Grecia Orchestra. It was just him: unmistakable with his single-breasted velvet jacket characterized by padded shoulders, peaked lapels and satin details. And combined as in the show of his debut, that of Gucci designed by Tom Ford dell‘Autumn-winter 1996/97, with the blue shirt.
Achille Lauro’s look, followed by stylist Nick Cerioni, deserves a 10 and praise on our fashion report card!
But, let’s take a step back and start from the beginning.
It was the late nineties and the then creative director of the Gucci house, Tom Ford, had this two-piece, composed of jacket e red velvet trousers, which today, after exactly twenty-five years, has returned to shine in the spotlight.
We saw him parading a short time ago, always on the catwalk Gucci, but this time with the creative direction of the visionary Alessandro Michele who, in his collection Aria conceived for the 100th anniversary of the maison, it wanted to celebrate the history of the Florentine brand by reinterpreting some of the most iconic looks, like this one by Tom Ford.
Then? We had another flashback, which we promptly told you about. That of Gwyneth Paltrow, who wore the legendary suit twice: the first on the red carpet of MTV Music Awards of 1996 and the last one at the fashion show Gucci Love Parade say Los Angeles.
Then? We also saw it on the stage of People Choice Awards 2021, worn by Kris Jenner.
And, very last in order of appearance, Achille Lauro who has interpreted it with a great dose of glamor, as only he can do.
And now? Who will be the next celeb to wear the red suit by Gucci most desired by the stars (and not only)?
