Alessandro Michele Travels the Globe from the Gucci Spring 2017 Runway

In fashion, travel is just part of the job, especially for the creative director of one of the hottest brands of the moment. “I hate to travel,” Alessandro Michele revealed backstage after the Gucci Spring 2017 Menswear show. “You don’t have to take a plane. You can just get on the subway.” While the designer has been jet setting all over Europe as of late—he just returned to Milan after showing his resort line in London—he explained he doesn’t need to travel physically to be inspired by the world. “You can travel in different ways,” he noted. “With a book, you can travel. If I change the tapestry of my chair, I sit and I travel.”
