Bloom serves as Alessandro Michele's first women's scent for the label.

After much anticipation following a New York City launch event back in May, the campaign for Gucci Bloom, Alessandro Michele's first women's scent for the label, is finally here — and damn, does it deliver. The series of dreamy photos, which the Italian house rolled out on Instagram on Tuesday, depict Dakota Johnson, Hari Nef and Petra Collins (What. A. Trio.) standing serenely in a lush garden and wearing head-to-toe Gucci florals, of course. The campaign, photographed by Gucci favorite Glen Luchford in New York City, was inspired by "urbanity and how scent can be a way to travel somewhere that does not exist, that is purely imagined," according to a statement from Michele. "It's a surreal idea of wearing a garden." In...

Gucci’s Urban Garden

hbz-gucci-in-bloom-00-index-1500315788
When Alessandro Michele and I meet at his hotel in New York’s SoHo, after what has already been a long workday for him, he tells me that he almost added another layer to the day: On the way here, his people had to talk him out of taking a detour to de Vera, one of the many antiques stores he knows and adores in the city. “I mean, if you are a collector,” he says, “you find things everywhere. Also, if you go outside just to the pharmacy, you come back with something. It’s like you are a prisoner inside a bit of a dream. If I have one minute, I take my iPad and I spy everywhere.” Michele is a...

Gucci Is Launching A Travel App

Alessandro Michele is making the most of his time at Gucci. Just five days after announcing the launch of a 32-piece range of homewear called Gucci Decor, the creative director has outlined plans for a new initiative called Gucci Places. The latter is an online tool that will allow users to to explore various locations around the world that have inspired elements of design throughout the house’s 96-year history. Slated to be made available through Gucci’s dedicated App this Fall, the new platform will shed light on the meaning behind the motifs and historic locales that have become synonymous with Michele’s collections. Each Gucci Place will be unveiled individually, and while some will be well known, there are others that will...

All eyes were on the Gucci Cruise 2018 show in Florence yesterday, with every detail shared on Instagram. The most striking? The models' hands gloved in Gucci jewelry with black painted fingertips.

Renowned nail artist Jenny Longworth was behind the "dipped ink nail look," which extended down the fingers. In addition, jewelry fusing gold GG hardware and pearls lent the gothic vibe some glamour.

While some designers have been jetting halfway across the world to showcase their cruise collections, Gucci's Creative Director Alessandro Michele decided to go back to the brand's roots for his 2018 cruise collection. The collection, called Antianatomy, took place on May 29 at the famous Palazzo Pitti in Florence and was created to show the "heart and soul of Gucci's origins." Michele teamed up with Uffizi Gallery and the city of Florence for a cultural project called Primavera di Boboli. In addition to the runway show, Gucci is also donating 2 million euros over the next three years to restore the Boboli Gardens. Guests received a personalized Gucci hat with their names embroidered on the side as well as time and location...

Illustrator Angelica Hicks On Her Graffiti Gucci Geeks

lede-angelica
Since Alessandro Michele’s takeover of Gucci in 2015, the brand has applied his playful spirit to a vast array of projects beyond its runway shows. The house has made memes and even commissioned graffiti. Its latest endeavor marries both concepts with the help of artist and Instagram meme lord Angelica Hicks. Together, Gucci and Hicks have unveiled a massive wall art project in New York and Milan; Hicks’s #GucciGeeks will also appear on a limited edition run of tees. “Seeing my illustration on such a large scale, akin to a billboard, is insane,” Hicks wrote Vogue over email. The project follows a similar rollout as that with artist Jayde Fish in 2016. “Nearly a year ago I was contacted by Gucci,...

After teasing the pieces with a semi-sardonic (and controversial) social media campaign of timepiece-themed memes, Gucci unveiled a collection of watches totally worthy of Insta-fame, reflecting all the wit, humor, and creativity endemic to the fashion house. In short: You're going to want them all. The statement-making accessories adapt popular iconography from the Gucci archives beloved by fashion fans and collectors (think the signature tri-color stripes, animal logos, and Renaissance elements), paired with...
