Discover Gucci‘s Spring Summer 2020 campaign captured at Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles by Greek film director and photographer Yorgos Lanthimos, with creative direction from Alessandro Michele. In charge of art direction was Christopher Simmonds, with beauty from hair stylist Paul Hanlon, and makeup artist homas De Kluyver.
“Never underestimate the power of a triplet. Omnia tria divina sunt says the old adage. Even more so if the trio includes a horse. Is the longhaired, tailed equine a pet? A family member? A therapy aid? A nod to the enduring equestrian lineage in the Gucci DNA? A mythologic incarnation of some love-messaging deity? Maybe all of the above, maybe none.
One way or another, a horse features as the co-protagonist of the new Gucci advertising campaign. On the beach, in the kitchen, at the car wash, in the traffic jam, the horse is always there: getting a snack, swimming in the pool, washing shoes at the car wash, bringing the other two to destination and generally sharing moments with his or her… owners? There’s no owning in a relationship. The campaign is an exercise in warm-hearted ambiguity, an act of everyday surrealism, a celebration of the paradoxical.“
