I am convinced that Alessandro Michele and London are having a love affair. No I’m not talking about London Tipton, from the popular kid’s television show The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, I’m talking about the city of London. How do I know this you ask. Alessandro showed his love for the city last week by declaring Gucci’s Cruise collection will be shown right here in LDN. Now London has reciprocated her affection by naming him International Fashion Designer of the Year. Well, technically it was the BFC but they’re based in London, so it’s basically the same thing. Congratulations Alessandro, and thank you. Not only have you gifted us peasants with your glorious Gucci garms but you’ve given us an excuse to pop open the Prosecco on Monday morning to help you celebrate.
