“This Collection Is a True Act of Love”—Alessandro Michele on His Gucci Ha Ha Ha Collab With Harry Styles

Gucci’s Alessandro Michele and Harry Styles are a fashion match made in heaven. Their friendship goes way back: “We’ve known each other for such a long time, and our shared obsession for fashion is what has drawn us together,” Michele said at today’s Milan press conference for the launch of the Gucci Ha Ha Ha collection, which they sort of co-designed.

Harry Styles Is Designing a Collection for Gucci With Alessandro Michele

Click here to read the full article. Harry Styles can now add “fashion designer” to his already-impressive resume. On Monday (June 2o), Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele revealed during a press conference that he and Styles have joined forces to create a series of 25 looks for their HA HA HA collection (named by combining Michele and Styles’ first initials).

Alessandro Michele Subverts the Fashion Show With Gucci Dallas Space

The parlance of the fashion show is inherently in-person and mobile: runway, catwalk. So, what to do when a pandemic renders that dynamic temporarily unfeasible? Gucci’s prolific creative director, Alessandro Michele, had some ideas of course involving mid-century design icons, shag carpeting, and vintage cars, and nowhere were they better on display than at Gucci Dallas Space.

‘This place is a stargate between earth and sky!’: dreaming big with Gucci’s Alessandro Michele

T — here is a philosophy class on the Harvard curriculum this semester, under associate professor Emanuele Coccia, called The Ego in Things: Fashion As a Moral Laboratory. The syllabus, which examines the role of fashion in shaping identity and illustrating culture, includes an essay bythe late designer Virgil Abloh, and an episode of The Simpsons made in collaboration with Balenciaga, but particular focus is given to Alessandro Michele, the creative director of Gucci. This week Michele, who recently attended the Met Gala twinning with Jared Leto, right down to matching diamante hair barrettes, showed his latest collection, Cosmogonie, at a 13th-century Puglian castle. The influences he cited were not the usual style references – Audrey Hepburn, say, or Cristóbal Balenciaga – but Hannah Arendt, the Holocaust survivor and political theorist who coined the phrase “the banality of evil”, and critical theorist Walter Benjamin.

Jared Leto Twins With Alessandro Michele at the Met Gala

The last time Jared Leto showed up on the Met Gala red carpet, he was carrying an exact replica of his own head. This year, he showed up with a full-on twin—in the form of Gucci designer Alessandro Michele. Leto, of course, may be the single biggest celebrity muse associated with Michele’s run at Gucci, and almost exclusively wears the brand’s clothing on the red carpet. Of course, the fact that the pair have begun to resemble each other hasn’t been lost on the fashion crowd either, and apparently the pair don’t mind the comparisons.

What Alessandro Michele Thought After Seeing ‘House of Gucci’

Click here to read the full article. With its all-star cast, “Godfather”-like, soap opera plot and sumptuous costumes, “House of Gucci” has been a pop culture hit. Though many critics panned the film, Lady Gaga garnered a Golden Globe nomination for her somewhat cheesy portrayal of Patrizia Reggiani, who spent 18 years in prison for hiring a hitman to murder her ex-husband and Gucci house scion Maurizio Gucci (played by Adam Driver in the film).More from WWDFront Row at Gucci RTW Fall 2022Sportmax Pre-Fall 2022Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini Pre-Fall 2022 When current Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele presented his “Love Parade” collection...

Gucci Designer Alessandro Michele Talks About Those Freaky Heads From His Infamous Runway Show

Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele brought us back to his controversial 2018 runway show in an interview with 60 Minutes, where he addressed his idea to have models carry wax replicas of their own heads. Most will remember when brand muse Jared Leto repurposed the move at the 2019 Met Gala, but Michele took us back to the origin of the concept. "I was in the crazy idea that when you are a teenager you are growing," he said. "You have to care about your personality. It was like a way to say that you were carrying yourself. It is not easy, you know? Because sometimes you try to be someone else."
