When it comes to acing streetstyle 24/7, no one does it better than RiRi. One of her latest arm candies is a hot ticket item for Fall/Winter ’16: the “graffitised” Gucci leather shopper Alessandro Michele designed in collaboration with American artist Trevor Andrew aka GucciGhost.
Madonna, too, was one of its earliest fans; she was spotted toting that same bag in April. And if you don’t know who GucciGhost is by now (where have you been?), he’s the artist who first made his name by spraying the Gucci logo onto any available surface, from walls to dumpsters, around New York City.
But instead of suing Andrew for copyright infringement, the brand splashed his sprayed-on GucciGhost motifs onto bags, skirts, shoes, coats and small leather goods for Fall.
And while shoppers are plentiful this season – see Balenciaga’s oversized, striped version and Marni’s cute, cartoonish tote – it is Gucci’s take that will probably stand out as the most subversive design to date. And just like its fur-lined horsebit slippers, expect to see it popping up everywhere at the upcoming fashion weeks.
