Alessandro Michele Ups the Ante for Gucci's Retro SS20 Campaign Featuring a Team of Horses

Shot by photographer and director Yorgos Lanthimos.

For Gucci‘s Spring/Summer 2020 advertising campaign, creative director Alessandro Michele has tapped photographer and director Yorgos Lanthimos of the 2017 psychological thriller film The LobsterThe Killing of a Sacred Deer to capture this year’s stunning images. Constantly pushing boundaries, Michele has integrated a team of live horses to represent the fashion house’s co-protagonist in the grand shoot.

Inspired by the power of trios, the horses were shot in various locations across Los Angeles – beaches, parking lots, swimming pools and airplanes – as well as the prestigious Chateau Marmont hotel. Additionally, the horses represent freedom, which aligns with one of the core beliefs of Gucci’s SS20 show stating that freedom is “all about the power of fashion to break the cage of rules with the self-determination of personal style.” As for the models, they sported luxe button-ups, pants and collared jackets incorporated with the label’s signature webbed stripe logo, along with buckled footwear and logo-printed bags.

Take a look at the campaign imagery above and witness the scenes transform into “warm-hearted ambiguity, an act of everyday surrealism.” While you’re here, don’t forget to check out Prada’s 2020 Lunar New Year campaign.
