Gucci is pleased to reveal the second installment in its “Forever Now” icons of heritage advertising campaign series conceived by Creative Director Frida Giannini in collaboration with Charlotte Casiraghi. The two new portraits celebrate the iconic metal horsebit featured on the classic Gucci Loafer – the hardware that has inspired a legacy, since it was first introduced into the House’s vocabulary nearly sixty years ago.
Shot by Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, the vivid black and white photographs portray Ms. Casiraghi in a natural, spontaneous atmosphere full of details. A testament to the equestrian imagery that has embraced Gucci designs across generations, the campaign takes its cue from the brass bit that Guccio Gucci first used on the House’s saddle-stitched handbags in the Fifties, before he applied it to Gucci's signature loafer in 1953.
The first “Forever Now” advertising campaign series was launched in Autumn 2010, in the run up to Gucci’s 90th anniversary, and featured original black and white photography of Gucci’s Florentine Artisans from its Archive.
All video and photography of the campaign was shot by Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin.
