Sweden’s first (and only) gold grill-maker Trinity Tafari alongside his partner in crime Klara Kassman wearing the Cruise 2017 Spring collection by Gucci.
Described as 'a love letter to England' by Gucci's creative director Allesandro Michele, the Cruise 2017 collection is a powerful mix of past and present that draws heavy inspiration from London and the Punk era.
Michele has also created a capsule based on the cultural journeys of the mind. This included one of our most beloved characters, Donald Duck which can be see on the vintage style leather bomber.
Trinity Tafari wears...
Leather bomber jacket with Donald Duck appliqué
A bomber jacket made from soft leather that has been washed to create a slightly weathered effect and trimmed with vintage details, like torn ribbon trims and stitching at the chest to highlight the silhouette of Donald Duck where a patch has been removed. The vintage aesthetic is juxtaposed with an embroidered Donald Duck at the back, along with a bead-embroidered Gucci appliqué and metallic thread embroidered "Σέραπις" appliqué-a reference to the Greco-Egyptian deity Serapis.
Scribbled writing print punk pant
A new denim fit for Gucci that speaks to the punk inspired attitude of the collection with a fitted, tapered leg and dropped inseam. The pocket scoops along one side are edged with metal studs.
Aviator glasses with Web
Gold metal temples with engraved enamel Web. The frame is Gold metal with transparent lenses.
Klara Kassman wears...
Angry cat embroidered cotton t-shirt
This oversize style t-shirt in cotton jersey has a vintage, weathered Gucci print on the front, inspired by prints from the 1980s. The neckline is enhanced by the Angry Cat and floral appliqués. "Loved” is printed on the back in red, an evolution of the phrase "Blind for Love" introduced by Alessandro Michele.
Jersey stirrup legging with Web
Sport style stirrup legging has a blue/white/red Web down the side.
