Alessandro Michele goes gothic.

Alessandro Michele and the Gucci crew will be packing their bags and heading to London this summer to show the brand's 2017 Cruise collection. 

The Cloisters at Westminster Abbey is the designer's venue of choice — a righteous step up from the DIA-Art Foundation New York City, where 2016's Cruise presentation was staged.

The Italian label is the first fashion house to show at the Gothic structure, which is surprising considering the vaulted arches and sunlit halls make for an ideal runway. 

We can't wait to see how Michele's cheery designs pop against the eerie, centuries-old cathedral when the show goes down on June 2.
