After confirming the Cruise '18 show will take place in Florence, Gucci is in the spotlight once again with the announcement of a specially curated capsule collection in partnership with leading digital retailer Mr Porter. Designed by the Italian label's Creative Director Alessandro Michele, the 43-piece strong collection was inspired by modernity and freedom of expression, and will include a full suite of apparel and accessories.

Highlights from the collection – which features the iconic motifs of the maison, from the bee and tiger to the skeleton and cat – include a fil coupé shirt, a crewneck sweater, a zipped jacket embellished with tiger embroidery and a pair of horsebit loafers. In addition to the apparel, the line-up also features accessories from leather bracelets and cufflinks to ties and scarves.

"We are the thrilled to partner with Gucci on this exclusive project, at a time when the house is so vibrant and influential in its designs," said Toby Bateman, Managing Director of Mr Porter. "Alessandro and his team's talents truly shine through with this unique capsule collection of iconic pieces, all of which we're sure will be an instant success with our global customer."
