Gucci has just announced that come next show season, men's and women's collections will appear on the same runway. Buro 24/7 Middle East has the details...

Luxury Italian fashion house Gucci have just announced that they're changing the way they'll present their future runway shows. With their first unified show taking place in 2017 at Gucci's new Milan headquarters at Via Mecenate, the brand will present a biannual fashion show blending womenswear and menswear lines instead. 

According to Alessandro Michele, Gucci's Creative Director, the new direction is just a natural progression. "It seems only natural to me to present my men's and women's collections together. It's the way I see the world today," said Michele. "It will not necessarily be an easy path and it will certainly present some challenges, but I believe it will give me the chance to move towards a different kind of approach to my story telling," he continued.

Following Burberry and Paul Smith's decisions to make the same change, which occurred last February, Gucci will still maintain its 'see now, buy later' schedule, to respect the creative and production process behind the luxury fashion brand.
