At the heart of the collection is a striking colour palette featuring the newly christened Ancora Rosso – a rich, burgundy hue that pays homage to Guccio Gucci’s tenure as a bellboy at the famed Savoy Hotel in London. It appears on chic pieces including an oversized leather jacket, embossed shorts and a midi skirt decorated with glittering silver strands.

Gucci is known for its luxe accessories and the stand-out this season is the must-have Jackie Notte handbag, which is sure to be a new icon. Combining the sleek sophistication of the Jackie 1961 with a dose of attitude, this go-to evening bag features a new silhouette and subtle details including a snap hook.

The Signoria pumps – named after the central piazza of Florence – are also a winner with their classic slingback silhouette. De Sarno has updated this everyday staple in patent leather, adding an irreverent pointed toe and unique logo chain detailing that makes a subtle statement.

The collection was captured by iconic British photographer David Sims – the first photographer the creative director ever worked with. Starring in the campaign are five unknown faces who represent a diverse spectrum of natural beauty, while exuding the freedom and confidence that are at the core of every Gucci woman.
