As Gucci continues to push the envelope in design, it’s no surprise that its Spring/Summer 2019 show for Paris Fashion Week was nothing short of electric. Set in Le Palace—a famous former Parisian nightclub—the show’s front row brought out an impressive group of A-list guests. The list included Jared Leto, Faye Dunaway, Salma Hayek Pinault and her husband, François-Henri Pinault, who also happens to be the Chairman and CEO of Kering Group—the brand’s parent company, as well as the parent company ofseveral other luxury fashion brands, such as Balenciaga, Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen, Bottega Veneta and Ulysse Nardin, among others.

Under designer Alessandro Michele‘s direction, the brand has taken a walk over to the wild side, with eye-catching prints and the boldest of colors together with unexpected shapes and textural combinations. And this collection, was no exception. The audience certainly enjoyed an incredible show that included looks reminiscent of the 1970s disco era, with standout pieces that included a sleeveless denim jacket with a close-up image of Dolly Parton on the back, a Mickey Mouse bag, a Janis Joplin-inspired felt hat, GG logo suiting and even one look that included a live bird.

Guests were taken aback yet again with a surprise performance from audience member Jane Birkin, who sang her 1983 hit “Baby Alone in Babylone.” Though Le Palace seemed like an offbeat choice for a fashion show, it turned out to be the perfect setting for what was indeed, a show, showcasing the wonderful world of Gucci.
