Denim, Gingham and a Tree:
The full Gucci collection for Dover Street Market

News-Gucci-DSM-1

Dover Street Market has announced a collaboration with Gucci, comprising a limited edition four- piece menswear collection as well as a photographic book about the brand, entitled ‘Epiphany’. The two fashion superpowers have had a fruitful relationship over the past year, with spaces dedicated to Gucci having been installed in all of DSM’s stores.

Alessandro Michele, Gucci’s creative director since January 2015, has taken the next step in this relationship by designing this exclusive collection. The pieces themselves are all top of our wishlist: a grey denim jacket with an intarsia patch on the back and embroidered details above the breast pockets, all framed with studs; a pair of red tartan pyjama trousers with an elasticated waistband; a dark blue and red checked over-shirt, with a rabbit patch and lettering on the back; and a grey marl sweatshirt with lettering and floral embroidery along the collar, and a tree design on the back. All the pieces feature a one-off red Gucci label, as opposed to the normal white.

The full collection will be available from the 12th June in Dover Street Market stores worldwide, with a signing of ‘Epiphany’ by its creator Ari Marcopoulos in the London store on the same day.
