Gucci‘s collaboration with adidas resulted in the Alessandro Michele-helmed house becoming the world’s hottest brand, and since it has doubled-down on these headline-grabbing collections with the teasing of the Harry Styles “HA HA HA” collection, a Billie Eilish-fronted campaign, and another campaign for the “Exquisite” collection that referenced Stanley Kubrick films. Now, the “Exquisite” collection has released, and littered between its usual runway-ready goods is a comprehensive second collaboration with adidas for men and women.

Debuted during Milan Fashion Week for Fall 2022, the “Exquisite” collection saw Gucci explore tailoring with a sporting undertone, melding its house cues with adidas’ iconography for the collaboration we never knew we needed. Leading looks were doused in faux fur, studded leathers, shimmering crystals, tulle and lace, while adidas pieces were done up in mohair and silk, elevating the sportswear brands image with Michele’s love and fascination with the extremities of luxury.

Nothing depicts this quite like the silk duchess dress, a $17,500 USD “Ivory” number that oozes regal realness. From its ruffled collar to ballooned sleeves, this floor-length piece focuses on adidas’ Trefoil logo that sits within a corset-like band, drawing the eye to the cinched waist. Albeit a womenswear piece, it sets the tone for what’s to come from the rest of the collection. For example, a reversible corset combines both the house’s signatures, while traditional elements like a Prince of Wales check infiltrate the double-breasted jacket and matching culottes.

Jogging sets are done up in cream mohair knit, with a bonnet adding a slice of antiquity to the high-end look. This is echoed by knitted hoods and berets overtly sporting adidas branding, while the leading menswear piece — a $13,800 USD wool and shearling cape — continues this royal, Renaissance period styling. Here, caramel wool is lined with brown leather, detailing closures and pockets before black shearling decks the bottom of the piece, providing that sense of importance.

Men’s boots play on this theme, as they are pointed and heeled but sport laces and Three Stripes branding, while a Trefoil coat in green brings in a more contemporary aesthetic. Rounding off the adidas range are wedge platform Gazelles, driving gloves in black leather, knee-high boots and accessories including socks.

Take a look at the entire Gucci “Exquisite” collection, including its second round from adidas, in the gallery above. Everything is available to shop online or in Gucci’s boutiques worldwide now.
