Just Released: New Gucci Tian Accessories for Spring

The Italian house’s new tropical-print capsule collection channels the Far East—and beyond.

The words “Gucci” and “shake-up” have become synonymous since Marco Bizzarri took the reigns as CEO just over a year ago, plucking head of accessories Alessandro Michele from behind-the-scenes to appoint him creative director (Michele’s first test? Designing a menswear collection in just five days). What’s emerged since is quirky, boundary-pushing ready-to-wear and accessories with a nod to faraway places and surrealist art. So, it’s no surprise the label has turned its classic GG Supreme print on its head for spring with its Gucci Tian capsule collection, available in stores and online week, inspired by the Chinese landscape and 18th-century tapestries and screens. The traditional double-G logo was laser-printed onto all 41 pieces in the U.S. range—from red-laced men’s high-tops to women’s Padlock bags—then overlaid with the Tian floral motif featuring 3-D blooms, dragonflies, butterflies and hummingbirds with a painted-on appearance (see the print walking down the SS16 runway, above). The brand calls this effect an “artistic takeover.” We couldn’t agree more. Pieces, $260 to $2,480; gucci.com and Gucci boutiques.
