Drapers Top 100 2017 - 63. Alessandro Michele, creative director, Gucci

Last year, Alessandro Michele shot up the Top 100 as Gucci-mania hit the high street.

While Michele’s aesthetic, with its historical touches and androgynous glamour, is still a huge influence – his accessories, loafers and ladylike bags, in particular, inspire many imitations – it is less dominant this year.

Nevertheless, Michele’s Gucci continues to thrive, and the brand maintains its place at the top of the wish list for buyers and shoppers alike. Revenues continue to soar – parent company Kering reported a 49.4% increase at Gucci for the third quarter of 2017, up to €1.5bn (£1.32bn).

Gucci also announced earlier this year that it is set to ban all fur from its collections from spring 18 onwards, a move parent company Kering described as aiming to: “inspire innovation and raise awareness, changing the luxury fashion industry for the better”. Most recently, in November, it announced the launch of a “Gucci research lab”, to explore how luxury brands are evolving.
