Gucci ‘Epilogue’ Marks Both an End and a Beginning

A look from Gucci’s “Epilogue” collection.

Back in May of this year, Alessandro Michele announced that Gucci would be scaling back its fashion shows, bringing the total from five down to just two. “We need new oxygen to allow this complex system to be reborn,” he told Vanessa Friedman of The New York Times.

But first, Michele needed to tie up some loose ends. On Friday, he “presented” the “Epilogue” collection, wrapping up a three-part series which started with the magical, theatre-in-the-round style presentation of Fall 2020 and continued with its model-directed campaign “The Ritual” in May. “Epilogue,” ostensibly a Resort 2021 collection, completes Michele’s vision of turning fashion inside-out, of revealing the typically behind-the-scenes moving parts, by featuring his design team in the lookbook shot by Mark Peckmezian.
