New York, May 8, 2016 – Italian fashion house Gucci is all set to release its 20-piece capsule collection for Net-a-Porter on May 12. The new range will feature an exclusive 19th century-inspired floral tapestry print on a collection of accessories, ready-to-wear clothing and shoes. All new range will have the classic Gucci prints, and modern silhouettes. It will also house Gucci signature products like cashmere sweaters, Dionysus bag, mules and sneakers.
“Our customer cannot seem to get enough of Gucci,” Alison Loehnis, president of Net-A-Porter and Mr Porter commented. “Working on the exclusive project has been a thrill and we’re incredibly excited to be launching this global first on Net-A-Porter. Alessandro has an immense talent and vision, and, as we’ve come to expect from him, the collection is exquisite.”
This is no H&M style collaboration, so if you’re looking for a steal, it’s not happening. Michele designed an exclusive rose print and updated Gucci’s Heron print in red for the capsule collection. The rose print will be featured on a reversible cardigan, two sizes of Dionysus handbags, mules, a high heel and the Ace sneaker while the Heron print was used for a sweatshirt. Prices for the Gucci capsule collection range from $270 for an iPhone case to $5,300 for an applique silk-blend organza gown. Happy shopping!
