There is no denying the appeal of Gucci. Ever since Alessandro Michele came on board, the brand has experienced a somewhat unprecedented revival - it's nearly impossible to scroll through social media and not see a celebrity, influencer or one of your friends wearing the brand's loafers, logo belts or slogan tees. Michele has been one of the driving forces behind the return of the slogan tee, with the brand's own versions regularly selling out and now, he's gearing up for the brand's next big thing.
WWD reports that the brand is releasing a new line of limited edition T-shirts in collaboration with British illustrator Angelica Hicks. Having announced the collaboration via a mural in Milan's Corso Garibaldi area, the brand will release a series of 11 designs - three of which have been revealed. The first features an illustration of a book titled "The Gospel According To Gucci", the second has Florence Welch from Florence + The Machine emblazoned on it and the third has a 'snakes and ladders' design with a pair of the brand's pants.
The Milan #GucciArtWall by @angelicahicks is revealed on Largo La Foppa, in the city’s lively pedestrian district of Corso Garibaldi. Hand-painted on the wall: one of the 11 designs by the British illustrator that feature on the limited edition T-shirt collection launching on May 25 exclusively on Gucci.com in Europe and the US. #GucciGeeks #AlessandroMichele
There are only 100 shirts available in each style and each will have its own dedicated label.
Currently the shirts will only be available in Europe and the US from May 25, so there's never been a better time to put that Shop & Ship account to work...
