Gucci is pleased to announce the presentation of its Spring Summer 2019 collection in Paris on September 24th, as part of a three-part homage to France. The news has been officially shared with the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana and the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode. The House will return to its Milan Hub to present its future fashion shows in February 2019. Additionally, together with Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, Gucci is working on a special event to be held at the Gucci Hub on Wednesday, September 19th.
Under the vision of Alessandro Michele, Gucci began a creative homage to France starting with the Pre-Autumn 2018 campaign which recreated the May 1968 student protests in Paris, a historical movement that continues to inspire new generations. The Cruise 2019 fashion show will take place on the ancient site of the Promenade Des Alyscamps in Arles on May 30th, following on from other unprecedented locations including the art district of New York in 2015, the cloisters of London’s Westminster Abbey in 2016 and the Galleria Palatina of Palazzo Pitti in Florence in May 2017. Paris, the epicentre of French culture, has been the natural choice as the setting for the Spring Summer 2019 fashion show.

Marco Bizzarri, Gucci President and CEO said: “Gucci is a global brand with deep and vibrant Italian roots and a visionary French shareholder, Kering. When Alessandro told me of his desire to present the new collection in Paris – continuing the French-inspired narrative – I thought it was a perfect way to continue the creative homage to France. We have chosen to present the show on Monday, September 24th, the transition day between Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks to avoid impacting schedules. We will then look forward to returning to Milan in February 2019.”
Carlo Capasa, President of the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, said: “The Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana understands and respects the reasons behind Gucci’s request to present its Spring Summer 2019 fashion show in Paris on this occasion and will look forward to Gucci returning to open Milan Fashion Week next February.”
