A slithering snake traces languidly its way on the grass of a garden that seems more an illusive place than a real landscape – the Garden of Ninfa near Rome- populated by an animal omnium-gatherum. Alessandro Michele has accustomed us to his dreamy vision and take on Gucci – halfway a psychotic entrancement induced by MDMA and a pre-raphaelite awesomeness- but, with the Italian-Canadian photographer and director Floria Sigismondi as partner in crime, the result is of unparalleled sophistication. The film captures the gist of the 2017 Cruise Collection thrown at Westminster Abbey last June. Gucci’s sinners float in an Eden of precious silks, exquisite embroideries, elaborate knitting, ruffles and GG supreme canvas.
