There's been plenty of buzz lately over Gucci's trendsetting styling and new It bags, but the brand's latest announcement may be its biggest game changer of late. Today, Gucci shared that it will unify its men's and women's fashion shows starting next year.
"It seems only natural to me to present my men's and women's collections together," creative director Alessandro Michele said. "It's the way I see the world today."
The brand went on to elaborate that maintaining two separate schedules was a practice of tradition but is no longer practical. And while this constitutes a major change, Gucci said it will not move to the "see now, buy now" model that is rising in popularity. So, is simplification the future of the fashion industry? If this unification is any indication, it seems so.
