Gucci Vintage Tom Ford A/W 1996 Runway Women's Red Velvet Tuxedo Pant Suit

The year is 1996, Gwyneth Paltrow has just finished filming Great Expectations, the film Emma is released and news of her engagement to Brad Pitt spreads like wildfire. Meanwhile, Tom Ford is at the helm of Gucci creating some of the most iconic designs in the houses history. At his Gucci Fall 1996 runway collection a sumptuous red velvet pant suit saunters down the runway styled with a pale blue dress shirt and it's a hit! The iconic look is immortalised shortly after when Gwyneth wears the suit to the 1996 MTV Music Video awards. 

Flash forward to Tom Ford's Fall 2019 collection and we spot a red velvet suit jacket on Gigi Hadid, and as Fashionista editor Alyssa Vingan Klein pointed out, the suit is reminiscent of one from Tom Ford's Gucci era in the '90s.

This year Gucci turns 100 and Michele's Fall 2021 collection is a celebration of that milestone. It reexamines the house’s history; and here we see just how deeply this design has become a part of the Italian brands DNA. Michele reprises one of Tom Ford’s greatest hits, the red velvet tuxedo from fall 1996 that Michele said “made Gwyneth Paltrow famous,” with tweaks including new, more pronounced shoulders, a leather harness, and versions for both men and women.

Crafted from luxurious red velvet and satin trim details. This is without a doubt a must have look for any serious collector or fashion lover that will truly stand the test of time.
