The urban romanticism and eclecticism that Creative Director Alessandro Michele has infused into his collections has redefined Gucci’s codes and creativity. His distinctive and contemporary aesthetic favors gender fluidity, rich embellishments, and an unconventional vibe, all blended liberally and unexpectedly. As seen on the runway, eyewear is part of the House’s new aesthetic. Over 250 new styles developed annually feature the brand’s iconic motifs alongside novelty details, making the offering extremely versatile for the contemporary tastemaker.
Founded in 1961, Yves Saint Laurent was the first couture house to introduce the concept of luxury prêt-à-porter in a 1966 collection called ‘Rive Gauche’, synonymous with youth and freedom. This shift represented a first critical step in the modernization of fashion and revolutionized the socio-cultural landscape. Yves Saint Laurent, under the creative direction of Anthony Vaccarello since April 2016, continues to position itself at the summit of the luxury universe. Today, SAINT LAURENT collections include women’s and men’s ready-to-wear, shoes, handbags, small leather goods, jewellery, scarves, ties and eyewear. In its eyewear collection the brand maintains current authentic style, strongly focusing on the unisex concept. In addition to the minimal clean styling the collection features a discreet branding and the iconic detail of the Corner Angle: the metal angular corner positioned on the upper part of the front, an immediately recognizable “signature”.
