Gucci Horsebit 1955 canvas and leather sling bag, polyester-blend jacket
For the month of December and January 2021, you might notice that we have changed the way we are presenting things on our site. While we could have taken the easy way out and presented generic festive stories with generic festive ideas — top 10 shoes to party in, the best log cakes that are available for delivery and festive hampers to gift friends and family — at Men’s Folio, we believe in ideas that are as functional as they are frivolous, as smart as they are easy to wing and as enriching to you as they will be to the people around you. In short, we want to be as useful as possible because #aintnobodygottime.
Hence, we’ll be presenting 60 very useful ideas for the festive season and into the 365 days to come for the next 60 days. Here is idea six, relishing the fun with fashion with the Gucci Epilogue Collection.
The Gucci Epilogue collection is creative director Alessandro Michele’s final chapter in a three-part narrative on subversion — one of shifting the gaze and questioning the rules, roles and liturgies that have come to define fashion as we know it — which sees men’s wardrobe essentials like jackets, cardigans and pants clashed with eclectic additions of prints, outdoor bucket hats and whimsical bags. Michele’s metaphorical message behind the collection is perhaps to have fun with the clothes and accessories one don, and be free from the shackles of society’s constant gaze.
