“The inspiration was really Villa Adriana and the contrast between the muted grandeur of these ancient ruins and the bold colors and designs of the collection,”@elaine_constantine, the photographer behind the #GucciCruise18 lookbook which was shot around the gardens and ruins of Villa Adriana in Tivoli. Pictured here, a jacket in Flora Snake printed on canvas—an evolution of the emblematic print designed by artist Vittorio Acconero in the 60s.

“Villa Adriana, in many ways, looks like the classic fashion setting but I wanted to subvert things by having the models appear as though they were casually hanging out on their own street corner,” @elaine_constantine who photographed the men’s
#GucciCruise18 collection in the ruins of Villa Adriana in Tivoli.

On the second floor of the #GucciGarden Galleria ‘De Rerum Natura’, two rooms that more than anything resemble museums of natural history, explore #AlessandroMichele’s penchant for the iconography of animals and gardens. The displays of clothing, accessories and objects show how his interest has been fuelled by the fact that these motifs have been part of the Gucci narrative since its inception, and how they have always informed the design pendulum at the House, expressed in a manner that swings between the natural and the hyper-artificial. Nature bursts out in these rooms, as seen with the 1960s drawings of Vittorio Accornero showing dense floral bouquets and insects, just like with the modern #GucciTian motif.
