Gucci creates capsule exclusive collection for Net-a-Porter
The 20-piece GUCCI capsule collection will be on sale on Net-a-Porter from May 12 and will encompass ready-to-wear, accessories and shoes, WWD reports, and will include new interpretations of Gucci classics such as the Dionysus bag and Ace trainers. Alessandro Michele also calls on familiar elements – birds often grace his designs, and a reimagined version of his heron print features on a neoprene sweatshirt.
“Our customer cannot seem to get enough of Gucci,” Alison Loehnis, president of Net-A-Porter and Mr Porter commented. “Working on the exclusive project has been a thrill and we’re incredibly excited to be launching this global first on Net-A-Porter. Alessandro has an immense talent and vision and as we’ve come to expect from him, the collection is exquisite.”
