Gucci's Creative Director Comments On Brand's Popularity With Women Of White House

In a perfect world, we will someday be able to look back on the current political climate as somewhat of an anomaly. Unfortunately, the possibility of that nice thought coming to fruition grows fainter by the day. Things are pretty toxic when it comes to opposing political viewpoints, and there doesn’t appear to be much wiggle room that points to people suddenly coming closer together. It’s getting so bad that virtually everything is turned into a political statement, including fashion choices. Yes, fashion choices.

As Glamour shares, iconic fashion brand Gucci has received some backlash of late. Have they done something discriminatory or been embroiled in some sort of corporate scandal? Nothing of the kind. The backlash stems from the fact that First Lady Melania Trump and White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway have adorned some Gucci products. Yes, seriously. In essence, those behind the backlash are implying that the company should have informed Trump and Conway that they shouldn’t be wearing Gucci stuff.

Exactly why would Gucci do that? Because those behind the backlash are still feeling colicky about the election results? Because Gucci doesn’t like money? There’s no clear answer offered up by those that have taken umbrage with Trump and Conway’s fashion choices, and Gucci Creative Director Alessandro Michele has wisely decided to stay out of it.

"We have all kinds of customers. Everybody is free to do what they want,” he said.

That should be the end of it, but it likely won’t be. Somehow and someway, those behind the backlash feel that slamming a company is a productive use of their time, and that these actions will make them appear to be noble or something. The reality is far different. It makes them appear to be petty, detached from reality, and incapable of separating issues into the buckets in which they belong. Michele offered up some more advice for those that aren’t taking the hint, but we’ll doubt they take it.

“To be against something or someone, it’s a dangerous thing. It’s easy to be against your enemy, but if you give them a big hug… ” Michele added.

Kindness is always a nice tactic, and it’s really easy to agree to disagree and move on with your life as well. Walking around yelling all the time and making everything into a political talking point is beyond annoying, and it will do absolutely nothing to change reality.
