Gucci by Harmony Korine 2019
Gucci is adding more literature to its repertoire, announcing the upcoming release of a new visual book, Gucci by Harmony Korine. Korine, an American film director, collaborated with the fashion house to showcase the label’s Pre-Fall 2019 collection amid the ancient towns of Ercolano (Herculaneum) and Pompei (Pompeii) in Southern Italy, which were personally selected by creative director Alessandro Michele.
In addition to photos of the PF19 range, the work features front and back covers that were illustrated by Korine himself. The spines of the book were also specially designed so that when sitting next to each other they form a unique image. A slipcase that has been stamped with more of Korine’s drawings offers a special enclosure.
