Per W, the show notes for this — Sabato De Sarno’s second Gucci collection — are more word salad:

“My fashion lies in capturing the extraordinary where the ordinary is expected,” De Sarno said in the show notes. The collection, according to Gucci, was all about “embodying a meticulous journey of small subversive acts that come together to portray his vision of the Gucci wardrobe, one where fashion converses with reality.”

Sure, pal. The show has some of the sparkle of the Alessandro Michele days, but seems to be struggling to find its new personality, and I’m not sure I see a whole lot of it in here. Knit hotpants sure aren’t it. Maybe they didn’t need to go full control-alt-delete on this thing?
