The Gucci Ignasi Collection

December 15, 2017

Sponsored by Gucci + Shopstyle

There’s something new on the block, and I think you are really gonna love it. First of all, who doesn’t love Gucci, from the famous GG leather purse in every shade to the oversized sunnies that make you feel a bit more like a rock start than even you dream about being at night. This is Gucci in a brand new way via a super cool collaboration with Spanish artist Ignasi Monreal. Ignasi was taken on to digitally pen the Gucci 2017 Gift catalogue. Not just any old catalogue, but in fact an art piece on its own. His work is also featured on these exclusive t-shirts and sweatshirts on the Gucci site, part of the Holiday Gift Guide on the website. As you can see, Ignasi’s inspirations come from everywhere. There’s something so mythological about them, Medieval even, as graceful as the Renaissance paintings highlighted at the museums we visit on the weekends. But not only that, his artworks feel modernly wrapped around pop culture, with a large sense of humor on the side. Not to mention, that feeling of abundance that resonate’s artist’s Spanish culture comes across strongly, as well. A t-shirt with wit and attitude and criss crossings. It’s a t-shirt that makes you think and wonder. Plus, it looks really cool. I like it. In collaboration with Gucci for their Ignasi collection, Natalie and I styled a few shirts and sweatshirts with our favorite Gucci pieces to bring to life how the Ignasi collection makes us feel. As members of the digital fashion world, working in front and behind the camera, and always imagining up visions to bring to life on the daily together, this collection really meant a lot to us to wear. It’s the future of fashion, which is so multimedia and extra collaborative in scope, that it feels like the possibilities are endless. It’s a breath of fresh air. I’ve never felt more in tune with a t-shirt until now. With my Gucci block heels on. I’m all set.

The Bold Puffer

My layering tricks come in handy this time of year. A dress over jeans may seem weird to many of my girlfriends who prefer to stick with fully feminine looks. But to me, it’s exactly how I want to wear a dress. I’ve always been a tall girl, and growing up with many dresses fitting like tunics on me, the habit of wearing them over jeans or pants was something that came early to me. And the combination stuck. It’s almost second nature now. And in the winter, many of my dresses just don’t make the cut with just a pair of tights to fight back winter’s bite. The automatic fix is always a good old pair of jeans. Even a pair of flares come out of the woodwork this time of the year for exactly this reason. They bring me back to the 90’s and early 2000’s. Oh what a time, I’m not embarrassed to say. A bright puffer on top, and there you go . . . a spring dress can most definitely survive winter in New York City.

Dreamland

Please, don’t wake me up! I’m in dreamland. I mean, I must be dreaming, right? When was the last time anyone saw me in a dress this airy, feminine and romantic? Ages? Well, actually, this IS real life. Surprised? Let’s say that surprising ourselves is just a part of life. And fashion speaks so much to this. The feeling of stepping outside one’s usual comfort zone, and trying something different, taking on a characteristic that is not usual for oneself, even just for a few hours, or a whole day, or a whole month . . . well, that’s the freedom of speech that fashion allows us to have. There is no one to tell us who we are meant to be, and especially how we are meant to dress. I like telling a story, having a theme, with the way I dress, even if it doesn’t feel exactly who I am deep down inside. But it’s a story and a theme that I came up with in my head, so in that way it is a part of me. And I get to express that whenever I like. However I like.

On this morning in particular, this dress came my way. It felt silky and so delicate, I was almost afraid to put it on in fear of staining it or ripping it. It was like a piece that I would have worn to ballet class as a child, only far more grown up. But still it felt child-like, with its over abundant sleeves and high neckline. It was a dress looking to be danced in. Looking for sunlight to hit it. Looking for sunglasses to match its whimsy and girlishness. It was looking to be a part of a story to be told. It was looking to be interpreted however the interpreter wanted. This dress is not usually how I wear the color pink, but it might be a way that becomes more routine. Who knows how things catch on. How we suddenly fall for something else after being so used to another thing for so long. Our decisions, the things that attract us, the things that make us feel “together”, they can change at anytime. And that unexpectedness, that random chance, is the charm. So just go with it.
