freaks and geeks...
Good Grief, Gucci are everywhere you turn!
Small wonder they have seen sales rise by 50% in the first quarter of 2017.
I can't help but think the kooky bubble is due to burst soon but in the meantime this collaboration with British illustrator Angelica Hicks made me smile.
They have teamed up to create a limited edition collection of T-shirts. The joint collection apparently came about after Alessandro Michele , came across Hicks’ work on Instagram and asked her to collaborate. The partnership was announced with a giant hand-painted mural by the artist in Milan, with the “Freaks and Geeks” mural being one of the 11 T-shirt designs. There are only 100 of each of the T-shirts, which all come in a vintage-style metal box adorned with the same image as the T-shirt inside. They were launched on May 25th from the Gucci web store.
To celebrate the release of the collection, Hicks took to the streets of Milan and New York (obv to create two murals. Appearing at Lafayette Street in NYC’s Soho neighbourhood and Milan’s Largo la Foppa, in the popular Corso Garibaldi area.
