Gucci Launches Off the Grid, Its First Sustainable Collection

Between rising consumer demands for sustainable practices and the secondhand clothing industry estimated to be valued at $64 billion by 2025, you can’t not practice eco-friendly fashion solutions. That’s the Herculean task that Gucci is taking on with Off the Grid, the Italian fashion house’s first environmentally-conscious collection heralded by creative director Alessandro Michele.

“Gucci Off The Grid has been conceived to enhance respect for, and responsibility towards, the environment,” the brand stated in a press release. “Gucci believes that sustainability—at all levels—involves fostering this respect: respect for the people we share our planet with as well as for the environment. If we lighten our environmental footprint we can enjoy the world with greater freedom— the freedom to follow our dreams, with curiosity, openness and joy.”

To star in its campaign, Gucci tapped Jane Fonda, Lil Nas X, King Princess, Miyavi, and David Mayer de Rothschild.

Fendi Taps Artist Joshua Vides For a Beach-Ready Tromp L’oeil Collection

If you’re a fan of both A-Ha and Fendi, you’re in luck. The Italian house just dropped their prefall 2020 collection entitled ‘California Sky’ in collaboration with Guatemalan-American visual artist Joshua Vides. The painterly collection is reminiscent of the Norwegian synth-pop band’s hit music video “Take On Me,” where a cartoonish look runs strong. Much like that bop, Fendi’s newest launch will only get better over time.

Vides lent his touch in the form of a scribbled Fendi logo while outlining the brand’s iconic Peekaboo bag, poplin shirt dresses, and even a pair of jeans for a trompe l’oeil effect. The monochromatic color combo is the collection’s main aesthetic, complemented by subtle pops of pastel pinks and tie-dye blue, inspired by the Roman sky. The collection launches just in time for future beach escapades and features elevated summer staples like a
