Gucci's new wonder boy, Alessandro Michele, made waves when he was shock announced as Gucci's new creative director. Amidst all the drama surrounding the fashion house, he was a stabilizing presence, working his way up from accessories before getting a shot at the big time. With Gucci's S/S 16 womenswear collection debuting today, The New York Times hit the studio with Michele.
As we've said repeatedly, the "In The Studio" series is one of the best out there and this installment is no different. Michele talks about the Roman palace (literally, it's a palace) and the office he moved into and how he totally redesigned it to feel like home. Naturally, that means old school furnishings and lots of open space, in particular his desk that he finally has room for. I know that feel, bro. Michele's studio and office is definitely right up there with Rick Owen's brutalist and minimal studio, depending on your taste in interior design, of course. Also of note is the fact that Michele's studio is in Rome rather than Milan, the city almost all Italian-based fashion brands call home. Apparently, Michele likes Rome for its energy.
