Gucci with new made-to-measure collection for Spring/Summer 2013
Gucci will launch a new made-to-measure collection which will be unveiled during the spring/summer 2013 Milan menswear shows in June. It contains 23 offers for men's wardrobe and 4 for women's. This collection is created by Gucci's creative director Frida Giannini in partnership with Italian businessman Lapo Elkann.
Giannini said:“Gucci’s made-to-measure programme is the pinnacle of our Made in Italy expertise and allows each man to express his own style impeccably. Lapo perfectly embodies my vision of Italian style as an attitude, an instinct to interpret fashion in an individual yet sophisticated way. Lapo pays great attention to detail and is never afraid to take risks.”
The 27-piece collection includes leather goods, shoes and jewellery, too. The customer will be assisted by specialist staff through fabric selection, to fitting, final touches and delivery - which will require from 4 to 6 weeks. The range of luxury materials allows for over 178 possible combinations of colours and fabrics.
"I am excited and honoured that the Lapo's Wardrobe project is being brought to life by Gucci, which is synonymous for Italian excellence and craftsmanship. It was a great experience to build this capsule collection together with Frida: we share a love and respect for tradition, yet we are not afraid to dare and experiment. It is the combination of both that I believe is exemplified in the pieces we designed and created" said Elkann.
