A new take on traditional English fabrics marks the starting point for the Men’s Autumn Winter Collection. A sophisticated taste for textiles meets novel constructions and silhouettes, oversize proportions, with elements borrowed from the cavalry soldier’s wardrobe.
Hints from the countryside shift into an elegant metropolitan panorama. Vibrant earthy tones and prints interrupt the rigorous discipline of black and grey.
“The Gucci man expresses his inherently free spirit with bold nonchalance,” explains Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini. “He returns to a sartorial tradition only to live it on his own terms – pairing formal and informal as he likes. This is a contemporary gentleman with a romantic soul.”
Relaxed, the unlined, deconstructed Duke jacket to wear as a cardigan. The mohair sweater and the knit polo replace the shirt. Pleated pants with soft lines on the hips. Suits in formal English fabrics take on newly eased lines and refined sartorial details.
The redingote and jackets with buttons and tails recalling a military uniform. Oversized coats. The Mackintosh in waterproof wool. The Montgomery with bamboo closures. Leather biker jackets and shearling bombers with a cracklé effect. Inside-out workings for refined secret details including internal prints, detachable blanket linings, and interiors in silk and flannel with maxi pockets.
COLORS and MATERIALS
Robin’s egg blue, winter white, ochre, orange, burnt red and parsley green against black and grey. Tweed, pied de poule, Prince of Wales checks reworked in micro and maxi variations, with interwoven colorful threads. The new chinoiserie print with signature details for linings and for the collection’s leitmotif, the cache-col. Mohair knitwear with hand embroidered tone-on-tone tapestry applications. Outerwear in leather, shearling and wool. The coat in alpaca and Persian lamb’s wool for after dark.
A new tuxedo, designed from daywear or unconventional fabrics. Micro pinstriped tweed, silk jacquard, Persian lamb’s wool, printed silk – with black satin lapels, piping, and cumberbund. To wear with an evening shirt and bowtie. For a sophisticated yet nonchalant attitude.
