Gucci Liberty embodies a retro decorative spirit. Liberty London’s archival floral prints bring new interpretations of Gucci classics and are presented in special packaging for online exclusive styles.
Laia’s pick: The Gucci Horsebit 1955 top handle bag is introduced within an exclusive collaboration for Fall Winter 2020, presenting Liberty London’s emblematic floral prints within a special collection of accessories and ready-to-wear. With its collection of fine ornaments, fabrics and objets d’art from around the world, the Tudor revival luxury department store founded in 1875 invoked social change in interior design and dress to the point that the Art Nouveau period in Italy is called ‘Liberty Style’. Floral printed leather defines the top handle shape, with the printed phrase ‘Gucci Liberty’ in honor of the special mash-up.
This ALANUI x Peanuts Snoopy Rodeo Show wool-blend cardigan is available at MYTHERESA
* Reinforcing the green message, Alanui, not only uses accessories, including studs, crafted from recycled materials, but also created an exclusive licensing agreement with the Peanuts to develop a range of pieces decorated with Charles Monroe Schulz’s pioneering comic strips promoting environmental awareness. For example, an Icon cardigan, crafted from regenerated cashmere, shows an intarsia of Snoopy lying on the globe framed with the “Keep it Clean. Keep it Green” wording. Snoopy, as well other iconic Peanuts’ characters, such as Woodstock and Spike, become the protagonists of intarsia, embroidered patches and jacquard motifs, depicting scenes set in the desert and at fun rodeo shows, while slogans, including “Space is the place” and “Cosmic Alanui,” pop up on the back of cardigans.
