Doll heads will roll!
Thanks to Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele, the luxury fashion house has seen a major resurgence in Hollywood. There's not an oversize embroidered denim jacket Beyoncé won't wear. Chrissy Teigen is spotted out daily in the brand's monogrammed belt. And those fur-lined, embroidered loafers? Every Insta-star has one. If all things Gucci is on-trend, then the next It accessories will be…doll heads?
Michele sent a cadre of fantastical looks down the runway at Gucci's fall show at Milan Fashion Week—including a fawn, baby dragon and a snake—but the most notable add-on to complement the colorful, cinematic-themed collection was the doppelgänger doll heads. As a few models walked down the runway, they held heads that looked almost identical to them. These replicas took as long as it takes to design a collection: six months!
According to Vogue, Alessandro worked with Makinarium, an Italian company of techno-artisans who specialize in special and visual effects for movies and directors like Ridley Scott, Danny Boyle and Ben Stiller.
While beautiful floral prints, gem-encrusted trainers and grandpa knits enchanted showgoers, Twitter couldn't help but have an opinion about the replica heads. Here are the best reactions.
What do you think of the replica heads: high fashion or completely bizarre?
