With the backdrop of Castel Del Monte in the Apulia region of Italy, Creative Director Alessandro Michele presented his latest collection, Gucci Cosmogonie.

In his notes on the Gucci Cosmogonie show, debuting soon from Castel del Monte in Italy, Alessandro Michele pays homage to Hannah Arendt and Walter Benjamin, the latter of whom was a collector of quotations: “He discovers them from the depths of the sea and he brings them back on the surface of the water, as rare and precious pearls.” In the Creative Director’s latest collection for the House, he draws inspiration from the Pearl Diver’s ability to “illuminate connections, which would otherwise be invisible.”
