Gucci is one of the high end fashion brands that has been more supportive of the arts through music, film, collaborations with artists, illustrators, and even graffiti artists. It is not a big surprise such an incredible collaboration with illustrator Angela Hicks, graffiti artist Trouble Andrew, Spanish artist Coco Capitan and illustrator Jayde Fish.
Fashion and art could not been so intimate – actually fashion has been considered and appreciated as art for years.
With the launch of our Art issue, it is therefore only fitting to discuss Gucci’s most recent commissioning of Thai illustrator Phannapast Taychamaythakool to create magical illustrations for the jewelry collection Le Marché des Merveilles.
Infused with a sense of romance and wonder, the collection explores the animal world by placing the feline head motif at the center. It includes necklaces, bracelets, earrings, rings and hand accessories in 18 karat gold or sterling silver adorned with precious stones and coloured enamel.
Keep your eyes peeled for these installations, as selected Gucci stores around the world will feature displays constructed to resemble mini theatres in which Phannapast’s illustrations will form scenes, showcasing the jewelry collection.
