Gucci has launched its latest literal masterpieces with the launch of the #GucciHallucination collection. The luxury line has partnered with Spanish Artist, Ignasi Monreal, on the limited edition collection which will include menswear. The primary influence of the collection is art. It fuses classic artwork with colorful and modern t-shirts and sweatshirts. They will highlight historical pieces such as John Everett Millais’ “Ophelia” and Hieronymous Bosch’s “The Garden of Earthly Delights”. It is for their Spring/Summer 2018 collection.
Such collaborations are not new to fashion houses. In 2017, Louis Vuitton collaborated with modern Artist, Jeff Koons, to create a capsule collection entitled Masters II, which featured pieces with the iconic and timeless artwork of Leonardo da Vinci, Vincent Van Gogh, and others. However, LV’s collection predominately targeted women, as the artworks were primarily featured on handbags and accessories. With Gucci, men can don some classical artwork, too.
