The news that Alessandro Michele would leave Gucci after seven years in creative direction and twenty in the company shocked the fashion world.
“… Today ends for me an extraordinary journey that lasted more than twenty years within a company to which I have tirelessly dedicated all my love and my creative passion. During this long period, Gucci has been my home, my my adopted family”
reads the parting text published by the designer to confirm the news.
And while the Florentine maison enters a new era and we will no longer see the genius of the Roman designer – the preferred wardrobe signature of celebrities such as Harry Styles or Dakota Johnson, among others – interpreting the codes, the Gucci models according to the vision by Alessandro Michele will continue to fuel the dream and desire, as well as the thriving second hand market, growing thanks also to the interest of Generation Z and Millennials, with Gucci among the most desired brands of the moment.
