MUST HAVE: Under the romantic and eclectic direction of Alessandro Michele, Gucci is redefining luxury for the 21st century and represents the pinnacle of Italian craftsmanship

Alessandro Michele's eclectic and vintage-inspired aesthetic comes alive in this multicoloured Gucci silk headscarf.

It's formed from two printed panels featuring vibrant florals, stripes and the signature GG logo, stitched together with golden thread, while the crystal-embellished bow at the back drapes the fabrics for a handkerchief effect. Let it stand out when worn with a neutral coat.

Gucci updates its coveted Marmont bag with a selection of whimsical embellishments for AW18. This blue velvet style is made in Italy with sprigs of foliage and florals, then opens to reveal a pink satin interior, complete with a single slip pocket. Double the leather-trimmed chain strap for a shorter drop before styling it over boldy printed separates.

Fierce feline features play an integral role in Alessandro Michele's collections at Gucci, and this statement bracelet gives a direct nod to the trend. Crafted in Italy from antiqued-gold tone metal, it has a twisted torchon chain band which is ornamented by a faux pearl and crystal-encrusted cat head. Let yours sit below the sparkling cuffs of one of Italian house's logo sweaters.

Alessandro Michele’s fascination with outer space is reflected in Gucci’s Pre-AW18 collection that features this black sweatshirt. Cut from loop-back cotton jersey, this crew-neck piece is printed with the house’s '80s-inspired logo and decorated with multicoloured crystal and sequinned shooting stars. Style it with jeans and trainers for a statement weekend look.

Gucci pays homage to iconic jewellery and fashion designer Hattie Carnegie with this ivory-white cuff. It's made in Italy with a carved leaf shape that is set with a crystal-embellished tiger head plaque, then secures with a classic hinge fastening. Style it alongside one of the house’s logo-printed bags to emulate the AW18 collection's maximalist aesthetic.
