Gucci’s Cosmogonie: Highlights from the Star-Studded Show

Alessandro Michele, Gucci’s creative director, adopted the concept of ‘Cosmogonie’ for the fashion house’s 2023 cruise collection.

The show took place at a 13th-century castle in the Puglia region of Italy, on the night of a lunar eclipse! Whilst earth’s shadow cast a copper veil over the moon, fashion was evolving, and new styles were being scrutinized. Here’s what unfolded on this ethereal night…

It All Started with The Big Bang

“Cosmogonies” was inspired by Michele’s perusal of Hannah Arendt’s essay on Walter Benjamin. Michele observes that “like the stars in the sky, through Benjamin’s eyes becomes an assembly of complicity: a connective structure that lights up the darkness through the epiphany of a constellation.”

Hence why Gucci’s 2023 Resort catalogue is based on the idea of a celestial body. The collection is a constellation formed by tension and the urge, excitement, and desire to shed light on something actual.

A Starry Night

Many guests were invited to the astronomical event. Gucci even gifted each attendee a star so they could remember the extraordinary experience of watching the Gucci Cosmogonie, as well as the lunar eclipse. Although the event was themed around the enchanting night sky, most of the stars we were gazing at were very much grounded!
