They first met in 2015 when creative director Alessandro Michele invited British artist Unskilled Worker to collaborate for Gucci’s No Longer / Not Yet art exhibition in Shanghai.
A fan of Unskilled Worker since then, Alessandro Michele has once again partnered up with the artist and this time to create an online-exclusive 40-piece capsule collection, featuring Unskilled Worker's stunning paintings.
Set to launch on 11th October 2017 worldwide, the Gucci x Unskilled Worker capsule collection will be made available all gucci.com markets including Europe, United States, China, Japan and more.

The Inspiration And Design
And onwards to the collection, we see a collection consisting of ready-to-wear pieces, bags, shoes, silk scarves and various accessories, all of which are dressed with signature Unskilled Worker motifs.
With the artist's witty, playful spirit and nonchalant painting style, the collection sees a beautiful union of romanticism and whimsy that resonates perfectly with Alessandro's vision for Gucci.
On the collaboration, Helen says, "The Gucci paintings are an emotional response to Alessandro's work. It's been like a creative conversation. I think we both like hidden elements in our work. It's been so exciting to discover his world and then mix it in with mine."
To bring the spirit of the capsule collection to life, Gucci has also shot an exclusive campaign to kickstart the collection launch on 11th October 2017.
