Gucci’s “DIY Knits” service using Featured inside original artworks by six artists. The new Gucci DIY wool cardigans, bombers and sweaters – for both men and women – customizable with an intarsia-knitted initial in diverse colors.
Angela Deane’s friendly ghosts named Sam and Wendall wear the sweaters painted on top of winter scenes. Isabella Cotier’s portrait style illustrations are based on the characters who live around her London neighborhood, and artist and illustrator Marc Burckhardt’s richly detailed creations feature a gorilla and a tiger, chosen by the artist because “the elegance and style of a tiger seemed like a perfect fit for Gucci, and the brute strength of the gorilla felt like an amusing counterpoint to the sophistication of the DIY line.” Amber Vittoria – an artist who focuses on the accurate portrayal of women within art – imagines two female characters. Ashley Longshore paints a girl immersed in flowers and Brianda Fitz James Stuart’s whimsical illustrations, inspired by classic Renaissance paintings, feature a swan.
