April 2021 for Gucci marked a very special milestone, indeed we could say that this year was the consecration of a work that the brand directed by Alessandro Michele has started and continued successfully for a few years, completely revising the entire communication of the maison, starting from the social one. With its 100 years, Gucci also celebrated the joy of contamination, with a collection hacked by Balenciaga. The shadow of Tom Ford and the irreverence of Demna Gvasalia have thus given life to Gucci’s spring / summer 2022 , and surprisingly, some pieces of the collection are already available in boutiques and online.
