Considered one of the most influential voices in the fashion industry in his last years, Alessandro Michele (Rome, 1972) bids farewell to his home since 2015. The creative director stated that there is a reality of “different perspectives” for the future of the Italian firm.. This is a conflict of interest that will be resolved by abandonment.
According to a statement by Kering, a luxury conglomerate to which the firm is owned, there should be no further reason to part ways, other than the simple fact of keeping distance, as both parties have a different vision of what they want. “Today, an extraordinary journey for me over twenty years at a company to which I tirelessly dedicate all my love and creative passion comes to an end. In this long run, Gucci became my home, my adoptive family. To this extended family, to all the individuals who support and care about me, I send my sincere thanks”, continues Michele in the text published by the Group.
If it is Italian, it is worth mentioning his mastery in bringing a success to the company that has finished educating itself in this sector. a very precise and successful dose of modernity. Based on Michele’s most elaborate style accessories, horn-rimmed glasses and baby collars, the designer has placed Gucci in the limelight of every fan and fashion consumer of all ages and from every country.
49 years old, Michele’s fashion is famous for her eccentricity and sense of color. But above all, for her effort towards gender-fluent fashion. By embracing the philosophy and culture of the country of his birth, he can boast of making Gucci the company most desired by the public and why it is the most efficient in terms of sales.
His outstanding education is another attraction for large groups and companies. He was born in Rome and Studied at the Accademia di Costume e di Moda Romana with the goal of becoming a costume designer for major productions. But his path took a different direction: he worked as an accessories designer for fendi. It was Tom Ford, then president of the company, who knocked on his door in 2002.
He became part of the Gucci team that same year.10 years later, he found a place here as an assistant under the direction of Frida Giannini. The greatest glory for him is the apprenticeship stage. There he was directly responsible for the firm’s leather goods, jewellery, shoes and other accessories.
Without limiting your creative ability to create fashion, His story cannot be told without the role of Richard Ginori’s creative director.. The reason for this is nothing short of the turning point for the Italian: the move to the next step, homecoming, this time to Gucci as head of men’s and women’s collections.
a) Yes, She starred in her first meetup after a Gucci show in 2015.has already become a creative director. First came the men’s collection; then feminine. And then, the combination of the two started talking about a new concept in fashion: sexless. Her androgynous aesthetics, which echoed the 70s, was so groundbreaking that she won the admiration of her fans.
At Gucci, the man nicknamed ‘the messiah’ destroyed everything that existed until he arrived, reinventing the firm’s codes and turning this historical tradition into a magnet for looks to ensure a promising future for the brand. Now, Nearly 20 years after seven of them joined Gucci as creative directors, the Italian is saying goodbye and leaving a door open to hope: Just because they don’t have feelings for the opposition that reigns at Gucci doesn’t mean they don’t exist. It will be in another company.
