The month of February is always one that revolves around love (thanks to Valentine's Day) but for team L'Officiel, we decided to take a little turn off-course to talk to you about the idea of "joy" and what brings it to us.
Before we get on with it, we first present to you our cover that stars models Clara Porter and Jeske van der Pal in the best of Gucci Cruise 2019, as shot by photographer Xiangyu Liu in the Medieval Church Saint Honoratus of Arles, France (the city. where the Gucci Cruise 2019 show took place).
Infusing 2019 with a spirit of liberty and self-expression, read City Of Angels to discover all about the refresh of the Gucci Guilty fragrance and our exclusive interview with actor-musician Jared Leto, who stars in the new uplifting #ForeverGuilty campaign with songstress Lana Del Rey.
Watch enthusiasts will also be pleased to know that some of their favourite timepieces are also embracing the joy that comes from a blissful infusion of art and craft in Happy Times. Finally, get to know the three young couples who more than meet the eye in Model Citizens.
