Some weeks ago I decided to work on a personal series, something like a kind of challenge I could work on in between professional commissions. It was a way to challenge myself but also to have complete freedom and to commit to a very special project.
I so chose to sketch each look from the Autumn/Winter 2019 Gucci collection by creative director Alessandro Michele. Picking the latest Gucci collection, was actually quite natural as I have always loved the work of Alessandro Michele and the universe he has brought to the Italian house since becoming its creative director.
I thought that his peculiar world could be the perfect inspiration for this series, that I started posting daily on my Instagram Stories.
For Autumn/Winter 2019, artistic director Alessandro Michele keeps building on his own vocabulary, presenting a collection particularly rich in tailoring, pattern and prints.
During the show, many of the models were wearing some spiked masks, supposed to hide and protect the kindness and beauty inside.
Other models were sporting gold metal ear coverings inspired by the work of artist Eduardo Costa, published in Vogue America in 1968 as well.
Check out the following gallery to discover each look from the Gucci Autumn/Winter 2019 as sketched by yours truly:
