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...

Gucci Features Only Models Of Color In a New Campaign

landscape-1492105680-hbz-gucci-ad-00-index

Gucci is celebrating diversity with its Pre-Fall 2017 campaign, titled "Soul Scene," which only features models and dancers of color. The ads, photographed by Glen Luchford, were inspired by the Northern Soul movement of 1960s London, and images by Malick Sadibé, a Malian photographer who captured nightlife in Bamako, Mali. The resulting vibrant photos are the perfect match for Alessandro Michele's equally bold designs.

The lively, flamboyant campaign is the product of the audition tapes Gucci released in January, which featured black models dancing and answering the question, "What does it mean to have soul?"

See the photos below.

Dakota Johnson Does Bohemian Evening at Elton John’s Birthday Bash

dakota_holding
Dakota Johnson and Gucci are a match made in fashion heaven: the actress has put her SoCal spin on a myriad of show-stopping pieces from the Italian house, including the classic loafer, monogrammed tote, and statement fur coat. She added a new ensemble to her Gucci repertoire at Elton John’s star-studded 70th birthday party in Los Angeles last night, stepping out in a charming floral dress from the brand. The Pre-Fall frock fell to the floor and had billowing sheer sleeves, though it still had a alluring appeal thanks to a plunging neckline. It's a bohemian approach to dressing also tested by Sienna Miller during Fashion Month—hers was a design from Dior. Where Miller threw a tailored coat over the many-petalled...

High Fashion Memes Are Now a Thing Thacks To Gucci

landscape-1489776173-hbz-gucci-index1

Meme culture officially reached new heights today with the introduction of Gucci memes. Yes, really.
The fashion house unveiled its first ever meme campaign on Instagram using the hashtag, #TFWGucci (That Feeling When Gucci, for those not fluent in meme-speak). The high fashion memes are celebrating the launch of Gucci's new watch collection, Les Marché Des Merveilles, because the year is 2017 and how else does one advertise luxury watches?

To promote the new collection, Gucci collaborated with Instagram meme-makers hand-picked by Alessandro Michele, like @beigecardigan and @youvegotnomale, for some fashion-inspired memes that showcase Gucci's latest watches.

#TFWGucci Milan-based art collective (@checking_invoices) is composed of a stylist, photographer, and video-maker. The result of their collaboration is a parade of also-anonymous figures — dressed...
