Gucci celebrates the year of the dog with a dedicated collection

The next Chinese New Year begins on 16th February 2018, and Gucci will celebrate the year of the dog with a dedicated quirky collection of special items.

Gucci’s dog motifs for this collection were inspired by a pillow that the artist Helen Downie, AKA Unskilled Worker, gave as a gift to Gucci’s Creative Director Alessandro Michele, which featured an illustration of his two Boston terriers, Bosco and Orso.

Unskilled Worker’s dogs adorn a wide range of pieces that have been developed for the collection, including items of clothing (women’s and men’s ready-to-wear), shoes, handbags, luggage, small leather goods and accessories.

Women’s brightly coloured knitted sweaters, and denim shorts, feature the images, as do men’s hoodies and bomber jackets. Totebags, scarves, trainers and jewellery are also embellished with pictures of these two dogs, while watches display the dog faces.
