“The centennial, for me, represents an opportunity to bear witness to Gucci’s eternal vitality that year after year, is reborn, it renews itself, reestablishing an unusual relationship with contemporaneity as a boy, forever young, observing the world with a powerful vision. I recognized the manifestation of its youth in its having intercepted and traversed, for one hundred years now, popular culture in all its forms. Above all, in music: the only medium, aside from fashion, more reactive to the times that mutate and mark the new, the today, the now”, says Alessandro Michele, creative director of Gucci.

Conceived as a tribute to celebrate the centennial of the Maison, the Gucci 100 collection manifests a deep connection between two universal languages: the language of clothing as an expression of personal identity and the language of music that recalls a collective memory.

A key theme within the Gucci 100 collection takes its cue from a number of songs that mention the brand. In the campaign, a selection of lyrics from these songs adorns ready-to-wear and accessories, at times together with the Gucci 100 logo, designed for the occasion, in a side-by-side tribute to past and present.
