[Luxus+ Magazine] Alessandro Michele: seven years of stratospheric design for Gucci

The news came out last night that Alessandro Michele, the artistic director of the House of Gucci, is leaving the company. Here is a look back at his highlights at the Italian luxury brand.


Alessandro Michele joined Gucci in 2002 after working as an accessories designer for Fendi. During his twenty years at Gucci, he held several positions, including Creative Director of Leather Goods, and then became the right-hand man to then Artistic Director Frida Giannini. In January 2015, he was appointed Artistic Director of the House. At the time, this choice was not very well received, as he was not yet known to the general public.
