The Exquisite Gucci Campaign

“I’ve always been charmed by cinema. For its power to tell stories that can probe human adventure and its drift,” begin Alessandro Michele’s notes on the new Exquisite Gucci campaign, which draws inspiration from a series of iconic films by the late, celebrated sculptor of genres, Stanley Kubrick. Scenes are revisited by the Creative Director and reinhabited by looks from his latest collection for the House, paying homage to the past through imaginative infusions of the present. “I’ve always imagined my collections as films able to convey a cinematography of the present: a score of stories, eclectic and dissonant, that can sacralize the human and its metamorphic ability.”

For the launch of the collection combining the codes of two historic brands, Creative Director Alessandro Michele has envisioned a campaign that takes inspiration directly from an archival 1979 adidas catalogue. Adding a kinetic twist, the visuals come alive with energetic individuals stretching, running, or dancing in place to a soundtrack of pensive phrases portraying how adidas x Gucci sparks infinite interpretations.

The North Face x Gucci Campaign

Unveiling the #TheNorthFacexGucci collection by Alessandro Michele in a campaign shot by Daniel Shea. Set in the Alps, the collaboration collection is worn by a group of hikers, who camp by the lakes in a trip to the great outdoors. The forests and peaks of the region form a vast and breathtaking scenic backdrop to the imagery, capturing colorful, candid moments of group activity reminiscent of holiday snaps. The campaign’s atmosphere evokes the aesthetic of the 70s, when The North Face was a thriving outdoor retailer based in Berkeley, California and shared a factory and storefront adjacent to Credence Clearwater Revival’s practice studio—whose iconic song ‘Bad Moon Rising’ is featured throughout the video campaign. Music: ‘Bad Moon Rising’ by Creedence Clearwater Revival




Gucci The Ritual: The Fall Winter 2020 Campaign

“I decided to let the clothes travel towards the houses of the cast of models – the characters that have embodied my stories for years; individuals I chose precisely, over time, for their uniqueness that usually brings my campaigns to life. I asked them to represent the idea they have of themselves, to go public with it, shaping the poetry that accompanies them. I encouraged them to play, improvising with their life” Alessandro Michele gave the models of Gucci The Ritual campaign no script to follow.
