We knew it wouldn’t be long until the first collaboration of the new year came about!
Gucci didn’t hang around with getting rid of the Christmas decorations in its windows, as the Italian fashion House has replaced them with some good old fashioned manga. Didn’t expect that, did you?
Creative director Frida Giannini has joined forces with legendary Japanese Manga artist Hirohiko Araki to decorate the windows of over 70 different Gucci stores around the world with the “Jolyne, Fly High with Gucci” display.
“I am quite sure his window installations will stop people in their tracks in cities around the world as they immerse themselves in the fabulous fantasy world he has created,” Frida Giannini said of the window display.
We know the Gucci Creative Director is pretty pleased with the collaboration, and it looks like the Manga designer is chuffed with his new role too. “Frida’s beautiful Cruise collection with its strong colours and graphic designs set my mind racing the moment she showed it to me,” he said. “From there the characters and storyline came into being so naturally. It was very stimulating to work together on this project.”
We think the images are pretty stunning, and imagine they will be even better up close and personal. Keep your eyes peeled for them!
