Pieces from Alessandro Michele’s first Cruise Collection for Gucci are, as you’d imagine, available at department stores like Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus, but a few pieces are exclusives at the brand’s sleek boutique at the Bal Harbour Shops, including a selection of dresses adorned with a vibrant print of bright flowers rooted (pun intended!) in the brand’s heritage, but used in a decidedly modern, spirited way. With their classic, fluid silhouettes and breezy fabrics, these really are investment pieces, on trend but not trendy, and designed to look good for years to come.
For formal nights out, there’s a floor length, perfectly draped gown that promises a movie-star-caliber entrance. A flowing, strapless column of creamy ivory, it is punctuated at the waist by a simple ribbon belt with a single, delicate fabric flower attached.
On the opposite end of the spectrum—but equally eye-catching—is a set of separates in metallic brights with confident impact either worn together or apart, including a menswear-inspired teal button-down that can be dressed up or worn with jeans. Bal Harbour Shops, 9700 Collins Ave., 305-868-6504
