Contributing to this cultural shift from a place as sacred to fashion as Gucci boutiques excites him. “The most exciting aspect of what we do is that we created a platform, a wardrobe, that gives you a little more freedom. We have introduced, in a large brand, a high degree of eccentricity, a very personal vision of one’s look, with things that until recently were largely forbidden to men, such as colors, shapes, ideas that have fun with one’s appearance,” he said.
He continued: “This leaves even the conservatives who come to us tempted by the idea of going one step further, for them to embrace this sense of freedom, because ultimately the desire to transform change yourself to be human. That’s true for customers, fans, and true for the talent and celebrities we dress up with from time to time. It’s an opportunity you give yourself, a door opening that you haven’t even considered.

When you look at Gucci’s major global events, front rows of fashion shows and catwalks, it’s clear that some of the celebrities who have chosen Gucci (or those that Gucci has chosen) live up to a certain standard. freedom treaty and mutual aesthetic development. with Michele and his vision. It’s interesting to hear how these relationships arise, how he chooses his outfits, and with whom he pursues this creative partnership. “There is no exact rule,” he explained. “Just before you arrived, I went downstairs because there was a ready-made for Harry [Styles] and a suit for Jared [Leto]. That’s what I usually do: I review and add or subtract, to make them like it more. And this happens because I know them, I have a very creative relationship with them. Their personalities make it possible for my work to push me into territories that are not mine. For example, Jared is obsessed with the idea of always changing while remaining himself. And that for me is stimulating. Or marry someone like the Italian actor Alessandro Borghi: when we met many years ago, he was certainly classy but also very well dressed. Now he wants to see how far he can go, lately I find him very handsome because he is especially free. Now that he wears different jackets and trousers, he wants to look like something different because after all, no one is the same thing. Alessandro wants to see how much he has and that, again, creates mutual stimulation in us that is reflected in the clothes. Not to mention Harry…”
