AT THE 2023 LACMA ART+FILM GALA, GUCCI PRESENTS ANCORA NOTTE, THE FIRST EVENINGWEAR COLLECTION BY CREATIVE DIRECTOR SABATO DE SARNO
A few weeks after Gucci Ancora, the debut show that defined the codes of the House’s new wardrobe for the day, Ancora Notte continues to enrich Gucci’s new vision with an ode to life after dark. The collection has the same attitude: it is anchored to reality and is made of joy and humanity.
Design after design, precious embroideries born from a study of the archive — in particular on a selection of minaudière bags dating back to the 1950s – are brought to life. Micro shorts are also back, to contemporize sinuous crepe dresses in a tribute to the ‘90s. After embellished minidresses and coats, lace inserts and beaded fringes now stand out on flowing silhouettes. In cady dresses with a bowed shirt neckline, there is a reflection on how much is daywear and what is eveningwear: it just depends on how you wear them. Boundaries are blurred as evening becomes night and everyone feels free to express themselves through clothes.
Gucci Ancora Notte was presented on the occasion of the 2023 LACMA Art+Film Gala worn by an exceptional cast including Jiahui Zhang, Fadia Ghaab, Nyajuok Gatdet, Violet Hume, Heather Strongarm, Camilla Orner, Agel Akol and Sam Case — new faces that made their debut on the Gucci Ancora runway.
