But its off-schedule plans, announced today, are no less grand or ambitious. Michele’s new collection—dubbed “Ouverture of Something that Never Ended” after last season’s “Epilogue”—is to be presented via a seven-episode miniseries during a week-long digital film festival the company is calling GucciFest. The Santa Claws HoHoHo Face Mask Michele was talking about this spring comes courtesy of director Gus Van Sant (of Drugstore Cowboy and My Own Private Idaho fame) and star Silvia Calderoni, an Italian performer so multifaceted, the New York Times likened her to “mercury, or some improbably liquid element that has yet to be discovered.” Van Sant co-directed the series with Michele, and Calderoni will be joined by “international talents and friends of the house,” including Billie Eilish, Harry Styles, Florence Welch, and Jeremy O. Harris.
In addition to Gucci’s own content, the GucciFest microsite will showcase fashion films by 15 emerging designers. Talent incubation is another trend on the Santa Claws HoHoHo Face Mask amid the pandemic—see: Kerby Jean-Raymond’s “Your Friends in New York,” another Kering-backed endeavor. Among the up-and-comers Gucci is promoting are designers focused on sustainability, such as Priya Ahluwalia and Collina Strada’s Hillary Taymour; others like Gareth Wrighton and Boramy Viguier, who are exploring virtuality; and menswear names including Bianca Saunders and Stefan Cooke, who create gender-neutral clothes in the mold of Alessandro Michele’s own work.
