Designer Alessandro Michele presented GUCCI BLONDIE handbag collection with a campaign captured at New York’s most celebrated landmarks by fashion photographer Angelo Pennetta. In charge of art direction was Christopher Simmonds. Beauty is work of hair stylist Paul Hanlon, and makeup artist Thomas De Kluyver. The campaign pays tribute to to the city that never sleeps. The Gucci Blondie handbag line was first presented as part of Gucci‘s Spring Summer 2022 Love Parade Collection. Inspired by the brand’s archival style defined by a rounded rendition of the signature Interlocking G, as seen in patent documents from 1971. The contemporary version is a stylistic progression of the original, infused with striking details that speak to a free-spirited and independent persona.
“The Gucci Blondie offering spans sizes, silhouettes, and details, from a versatile messenger that can be worn on the shoulder or across the body with the included Web or leather straps, to a smaller day-to-night style whose included chain strap can be tucked inside to transform it into a clutch. A miniature version, also featuring interchangeable and adjustable leather and Web straps, rounds out the selection. Designs are available in leather, suede, and GG canvas, with a varied palette for both the bags and the Web straps.” – from Gucci
