Alessandro Michele has paid tribute to twins in his latest collection for Gucci, which was unveiled over the weekend.
Through the collection, Michele honours his “two mothers”, Eralda and Giuliana, “two extraordinary women who made their twinship the ultimate seal of their existence”.
Michele says: “The grace of their duplicated and expanded love gave rise to my eternal fascination for the double, for the things that seem to reflect equal to themselves.”

The creative director explains that Twinsburg produces “a tension in the relationship between original and copy”.
“As if by magic, clothes duplicate. They seem to lose their status of singularity. The effect is alienating and ambiguous.
“Almost a rift in the idea of identity, and then, the revelation: the same clothes emanate different qualities on seemingly identical bodies.
“Fashion, after all, lives on serial multiplications that don’t hamper the most genuine expression of every possible individuality.”
