Sabato De Sarno, Gucci‘s new creative director, throws out all the rules in fashion for fall/winter 2024. His vision: A quiet revolution built on a foundation of “small subversive acts.”

De Sarno prioritizes a meticulous exploration by emphasizing: “Search within the folds for a void that wants to be filled. Look at the details very closely, before feeling free to back away in pursuit of a broader perspective. Capture the extraordinary where the ordinary is expected. My dreams, as with my fashion, always converse with reality. Because I am not searching for another world to live in, but rather of ways to live in this world.”

From sequined coats and jackets to sheer lace dresses, De Sarno makes a new statement. Adding subtle autumnal hues, such as sky blue, curry or olive green, and the new Ancora red.

The collection encompasses a variety of vibrant colors – mustard yellows, sky blues, bright pinks, and muted oranges – creating a kaleidoscopic effect.

Classic silhouettes like trench coats and jackets get a glamorous makeover with sparkling crystal accents, turning them into head-turning pieces.
