Reinforcing Gucci's passion for creative excellence, Alessandro Michele has now tapped a British illustrator for a comprehensive arts project. Buro 24/7 Middle East has the details...

Italian luxury label Gucci has launched an exclusive collection in partnership with British illustrator Angelica Hicks. The New York-based artist first caught the eye of the maison's Creative Director, Alessandro Michele, on Instagram, following which the pair collaborated on a collection of 11 limited edition T-shirts. Each design – including an illustrative depiction of Gucci ambassador Florence Welch – showcases Hicks' unique sense of artistic flair, which is boxed into a retro metal tin that features a matching illustration.

To mark the creative synergy, Gucci has also commissioned Hicks to create two large-sized murals as part of its Gucci Art Wall initiative (pictured above). Two specially curated designs have been created by Hicks at two different locations: New York's Lafayette Street and Milan's Largo la Foppa. Rounding off the exclusive Gucci x Angelica Hicks project are two digital initiatives including a special Snapchat geo-filter that will only be available within range of the New York art wall.
