Milan Fashion Week: Models carry fake heads on Gucci catwalk

Perhaps the stand out pieces of the show were Gucci's eye-catching accessories, including traditional handbags in muted hues, severed heads that were identical to the model's carrying them, baby dragons that appeared nearly too realistic, and iguanas that seemed to nearly blend-in with every piece.

As well as closing the fashion week showcase, there are even rumours that Zapivokhina could soon star in Gucci's upcoming 2018 campaign.

Models walked the space adorned with a variety of adorable pieces including severed heads, snakes, body bags, dragons, and iguanas. And while some of the models carried throwback style handbags and colorful clutches (we want them all), a select few were given the creepiest accessory of all time - their own heads in wax form. The materials used are typical of an operating room and the environment around it: "PVC on the walls and floors, fire doors with panic-bars, LED lamps, and plastic chairs like those in a waiting room", according to a post by the brand's official Instagram account.

Gucci's brand image had a one-way ticket for Snoozeville before Michele brought his quirky, vintage-inspired aesthetic to the fashion house in 2015.

Others said they were a little freaked out.

"We are the Dr. Frankenstein of our lives", Michele said at a press conference following the show.

Creative director Alessandro Michele said the heads were meant to represent the struggle of finding your identity, and "looking after your head and thoughts". "It's physical work, like a surgeon's".

Most of the show was weird and wonderful, but we're also wondering, were the intricate props just a distraction from this?
