THE GUCCIGHOST COLLECTION
GucciGhost, aka as Trouble Andrew, aka as Trevor Andrew, is a NYC-based graffiti artist who caught the eye of Gucci’s red-hot creative director Alessandro Michele for spray painting walls with his personal take on the house’s GG logo. Michele was fascinated by the way the artist used the brand’s moniker so rather than taking offence, he challenged him to a collaboration. Through the language of street art and graffiti, GucciGhost’s spark trickled from the wall to the runway, resulting in bold accessories and unique pieces that include a tote with the word “Real” on black leather, spray-painted fur-trimmed bombers, pleated satin skirts and sneakers, plus a crop of crazy small leathergoods. It all made for the perfect medley of rakish smart and street style, luxed-up to the max that further enhances Michele’s influential vision and gender-ambiguous proliferation. Certainly, the vision of these two creatives propelled the power of the logo to new artsy magnitude.
