Gucci x Balenciaga: Aria collection by Alessandro Michele

Aria collection by Alessandro Michele, presented in the centenary year of Gucci. Debuting in a special film co-directed by award-winning photographer and director Floria Sigismondi. A singular voice, taking its turn in the spotlight; in the Italian language, ‘air’.

“A deep and ecstatic diving in everything we yearningly miss today… a jubilee of breath.”

Creative Director, in his notes in the collection

In the year of Gucci’s centenary, Alessandro Michele opens the locks of history, only to find a deeply personal vision of the mythology that surrounds the brand.

Standing sentinel is the Savoy Club—a tribute to The Savoy Hotel in London where founder Guccio Gucci worked as a liftboy in his youth. Once inside, a “hacking lab” is unveiled. Incursions and contaminations by elements “pilfered” from House heritage and from Demna Gvasalia, Creative Director of Balenciaga—ultimately expressions of reverence and homage.
