The ancient Roman towns of Herculaneum and Pompeii become the set of a new limited edition photographic book shot by Harmony Korine.
The famed film director, artist and screenwriter—who recently wrote and directed ‘The Beach Bum,’ a film featuring Matthew McConaughey and Snoop Dogg—captured the Pre-Fall 2019 collection by Alessandro Michele. In the images, models are snacking away in refined velvet tailoring, richly decorated ready-to-wear pieces and 70s inspired accessories.
Chosen by Alessandro Michele as part Gucci’s commitment to promote artistic and cultural heritage across the world, the collection appears among the frescos of the two Southern Italy locations, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
‘Gucci by Harmony Korine’ will be distributed by IDEA Books from June. The limited edition book will also be available at Gucci Garden in Florence and the Gucci Wooster Bookstore in New York.
