Gucci’s Alessandro Michele Launches Capsule Collection for Net-a-Porter

Alessandro Michele has proven himself to be an invaluable asset to Gucci, ever since he took on the role of creative director back in the beginning of 2015. From the beginning of his stint, Gucci clothes have been flying off the rack, as the luxury label was able to reach a whole new stream of consumers. The next act in Alessandro Michele’s venture for the brand is creating a capsule Gucci collection that will be available only on Net-A-Porter, and we have no doubt that this line will continue the trends of any of his others.

Gucci's Alessandro Michele Launches Capsule Collection for Net-a-Porter

We know the Gucci for Net-a-Porter 2016 capsule collection will consist of 20 pieces, and we know it will become available beginning on May 12; once that time hits, customers will be able to snag up a slew of ready-to-wear garments, shoes, and accessories. For the most part, things have remained under wraps, as far as what types of looks we can expect to see. But WWD reported that some of the pieces will be recreated interpretations of some of Gucci’s “greatest hits”, if you will. For instance, the classic Dionysus bag will be revitalized in this line, as will the Ace trainers. These styles will be familiar to us, but elements within the pieces will be brought in from some of the label’s best conceptions, like the signature birds that we so often see in association with his work, and his successful heron print will be reconfigured and placed on a neoprene sweatshirt. For more specifics, we’ll just have to wait, but when there is a lot of hype from the inside, it’s hard not to get excited as well.

“Our customer cannot seem to get enough of Gucci,” said Alison Loehnis, the president of Net-A-Porter and Mr. Porter. Such a statement can be said about many other walks of fashion life – it’s hard to get enough of Gucci, so it’s just a relief there has been such a constant flow of chic output! “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.”

For now, we should be content knowing someone who holds Michele to such high expectations is more than happy with the collection. May 12 will be the day to look forward to, when we can see all of the looks on the Net-A-Porter interface, and behold the latest conception that the designer has construed for the renowned luxury label.
