Showing no signs of slowing down, Gucci recently dropped a lookbook for the menswear side of its Pre-Fall 2019 collection.
Once again shot by legendary creative Harmony Korine, the lookbook for the range is set at the archaeological parks of Herculaneum and Pompeii. Putting forward a chic exploration of historic tourism, the opulent stylings of Creative Director Alessandro Michele express a new take on the Italian house’s luxury heritage.
Leading the collection is an array of tailoring dominated by structured shoulders and wide cuts done in colorful textiles and patterned tweed. Gucci’s foray into sportswear is also continued with a series of floral and retro print tracksuits. Elsewhere, outlandish displays come in the form of Mr. Peanut patches from the Planters peanuts brand, tacked onto the lapel of suit jackets and overcoats. Finishing up the opulent outfits are leather carrying options that reference archival offerings of Gucci.
