“Father, son and Gucci House. Lady Gaga’s performance as Patrizia Reggiani in the highly anticipated Ridley Scott film release drew an international audience far larger than fashion history buffs. A concoction of ’70s glamor and drama ’80s accessorizes the shocking revelation of a precise death within Italy’s infamous Gucci family played by Adam Driver, Jared Leto, Al Pacino and many more. But almost as remarkable as their acting was the work of Janty Yates, Gucci Houseesteemed costume designer.
Working closely with Gaga to ensure an accurate portrayal of Patrizia’s style, Yates drew inspiration from Gucci’s well-kept archival collection and various vintage looks actually sported by the murderess. Classic G logos-mania meet culturally-faithful Italian designs from the 60s and of course, a sea of ââfur.
In the spirit of holiday gifts, and above all … dressing like Lady Gaga, RC has compiled the ultimate guide to visually materializing your own Gucci House lifestyle (omitting the murder element, ideally).
Gucci linen kaftan
A modern one-piece resurrection taken by Yates from the Gucci archives, the classic interlocking G-embellished linen canvas kaftan is a perfect look to shop now. Particularly rare in a match due to Gaga’s range of costumes featuring only of them the Gucci archive looks throughout the movie – the dress is weird.
Gucci Jackie 1961
Worn to accompany the iconic kaftan, the 1961 Gucci Jackie made a noticeable appearance in several scenes … perhaps implying that the recently renamed “Jackie” was Reggiani’s it-bag. Fans of the look are in luck, as the exact arm candy print and styling is currently adorning the shelves at Gucci.
Gucci bamboo top handle
No Gucci-related movie could overlook a favorite heritage: the bamboo top handle. Although Gaga’s version is not on sale today, a modern interpretation with smooth brown leather and tricolor bracelet details can effortlessly capture her appearance. Especially if paired with an opulent jaguar brooch.
HermÃ¨s scarf & Burberry trench
Yates shared with Harper’s Bazaar that Reggiani didn’t wear a lot of Gucci on a daily basis, despite being married in the empire. The scene for this particular look happened before the wedding (as Patrizia was chasing Maurizio), with Gaga sporting vintage pieces from non-Italian designers. Specifically, a Burberry checked trench coat and a red HermÃ¨s scarf, two pillars commonly available in the 21st century as well.
Gucci oversized rectangular sunglasses
During the second half of the film, Lady Gaga is rarely seen without a gigantic pair of sunglasses. While Reggiani’s own version may not have accentuated a dazzled “Gucci” on its uppers, the toning frame and lenses on Gucci’s rectangular sunglasses are a dead ringtone. Oversized and ready to spy on an ex-lover.
Gucci Double G Belt & Balenciaga Dress
Janty Yates also shared with Harper’s Bazaar that bringing Reggiani’s style to life required lengthy dress-up sessions with Gaga (in full print) to select outfits. No detail has been touched, from the length of the wig to the color of the gloves. A key look for Patrizia in the film was her cinched waist polka dot dress, tied with a logo belt. Balenciaga’s inverted-color cotton midi dress showcases a similar wide shoulder, paired with Gucci’s closer version of the thin interlocking G belt to mimic a similar silhouette.
Fendi ski suit
Paparazzi photos of Gaga’s monochrome ski look hit the internet last summer. And as cabin season quickly approaches, channeling her red ski bunny outfit will be a big hit. must for all regulars in St. Moritz and Aspen. Conveniently, Fendi’s red nylon suit incorporates parallel black accents and a belted waist.
Dolce & Gabbana lace midi dress
Wearing extravagant white lace is necessary while charming your husband’s distant family to relinquish ownership of Gucci to you. Fortunately, Dolce & Gabbana’s midi dress is perfect when garnished with matching shawls and mega-belts.
