Gucci Rouge à Lèvres Voile Limited Edition delivers a pop of color when applied to the lips or cheeks. 

Gucci presented the limited edition lipstick Gucci Rouge à Lèvres Voile Limited Edition. The Italian fashion house gives its ‘Rouge à Lèvres Voile’ lipstick a makeover to celebrate the Lunar New Year. Housed in a limited-edition case, this long-wearing formula glides on to leave a swathe of rich color and is enriched with moisturizing ingredients that keep your lips feeling soft and hydrated.

Gucci Beauty’s limited-edition Rouge à Lèvres Voile collection is a trio of newly designed red lipsticks which celebrate Lunar New Year by paying homage to the eternal color of prosperity. The collection includes two existing Rouge à Lèvres Voile shades of red: the house’s emblematic 25 Goldie Red, chosen by Alessandro Michele because of his admiration for this color, and 203 Mildred Rosewood, a soft and romantic red with flattering pink undertones.

The limited-edition hue explicitly designed for this Lunar New Year collection is 520 Marina Scarlet, a festive red with rich orange undertones. The lipstick’s porcelain effect ivory lacquered tube is given a makeover with a vintage-inspired design featuring blue roses and finished with a gold ribbed metal bottom.

Sheer lipstick with a luminous finish, Rouge à Lèvres Voile, offers a pop of color when applied to the lips or cheeks. The moisturizing formula created with a combination of oils glides on smoothly for a comfortable, lightweight finish that can be blended and layered for different results.  

Gucci Rouge à Lèvres Voile Limited Edition is available at $42 at Sephora stores.

Gucci Launches New Priming Serum And Foundation In 40 Shades

Adding to its expansive lineup of makeup goods, Italian fashion house Gucci has now launched a new priming serum and foundation. The new release spotlights the brand’s ongoing focus on individuality and diversity.

Makeup can be used to construct the identity we wish to project, yet this does not mean it has to change what is already there; it should be about enhancing individuality, not concealing it. This idea is cultivated carefully through the tools we choose to use, as much as by the ones we choose not to.

Alessandro Michele

The Silk Priming Serum, or Sérum De Beauté Fluide Soyeux, boasts a soft and lightweight texture that leaves the skin refreshed and hydrated throughout the day. The non-sticky product is formulated to ensure optimal coverage and extended makeup wear, blurring pores and fine lines. The primer, arriving in one universal iteration, is packaged in Gucci Beauty’s signature pink and gold-colored flacon.

Meanwhile, the Natural Finish Fluid Foundation is a buildable and silky-smooth formula available in 40 shades ranging from light pink to deep dark tones. The product works to subtly blur any imperfections while helping the skin achieve a natural no-makeup makeup look.

Gucci Silk Priming Serum and Natural Finish Fluid Foundation are available now at Gucci Boutiques and selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Gucci.

Gucci’s ‘No Space, Just a Place’ Exhibition, No Space, Just A Place Eterotopia

Olivia-Erlanger-Ida-Ida-Ida-2020-Gucci-Exhibition-No-Space-Just-a-Place-Daelim-Museum-Seoul-2020-01

‘No Space, Just A Place’ is a large-scale exhibition organized in Seoul’s Daelim Museum that showcases the work of 10 independent art spaces together with artwork from Korean and international artists. Organized by Gucci, the project is inspired by Italian fashion designer Alessandro Michele’s reflections on eterotopia and proposes a new definition of what an ‘other space’ might be.

Gucci Explores Alternative Environments in ‘No Space, Just a Place’ Exhibition. Bringing together the work of 10 independent art spaces and five artists.

‘No Space, Just A Place’ gives radical venues visibility and explores their ‘alternativeness’ as a tool to defy authority and question autonomy. Art spaces like Audio Visual Pavilion, Boan1942, d/p and Hapjungjigu each present a project that is thematically tied to the idea of an alternative space as a utopian place in which to set empowering new narratives. Artist Sungsil Ryu – showcased by Boan1942 – explores the notion of artificial paradises, while artist Kang Woohyeok from Post Territory Ujeongguk uses the possibility of owning land on the moon to explore the relationship between the real and virtual; possessions and what we dream of possessing.

Gucci Guilty Pour Homme Eau de Parfum

Gucci-Guilty-Pour-Homme-Eau-de-Parfum-Visual-01

The new edition of the reinvented Gucci Guilty perfume line is an intense version of the masculine fragrance Gucci Guilty Pour Homme Eau de Parfum. The celebration of freedom that the Italian fashion house pursues through the #ForeverGuilty story continues.

A retro take on the original: The new eau de parfum has been enhanced with chili pepper and fresh rose accords, which were popular men’s fragrance ingredients in the 1970s.

The composition is woody, aromatic and spicy, conceived as a provocative and modern interpretation of the 70’s fragrant ingredients. The top notes of the original that included lemon and pink pepper were replaced with rose and chili. Warm spices stand in contrast with bitter aromatic freshness, with an unexpected sensation of salt and vinegar. White flowers and the richness and intensity of the woody accords complete the composition.

Gucci-Guilty-Pour-Homme-Eau-de-Parfum-Visual-03

The Gucci Guilty Pour Homme Eau de Parfum fragrance flacon comes in a black opaque matte finish. It is packaged in a sleek black box, accented with the house’s interlocking G logo in silver.

The whimsical campaign was shot by fashion photographer Glen Luchford and is set in a stylised laundromat. The face of the campaign is American actor Jared Leto. Jared Leto is the frontman of American rock band ’30 Seconds to Mars’ and is also known for his roles in films like ‘Suicide Squad’, ‘Requiem for a Dream’ and ‘Dallas Buyer’s Club’.

Gucci Guilty Pour Homme Eau de Parfum comes as a 50, 90 and 150ml, and is available at Gucci Boutiques and selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Gucci.

 

 

 

Gucci The Alchemist’s Garden Hortus Sanitatis

Gucci-The-Alchemist's-Garden-Collection

Last year, Italian fashion house Gucci came out with its haute perfumery collection. The Gucci The Alchemist Garden line was created by Master perfumer Alberto Morillas under the creative direction of Alessandro Michele. Inspired by the art of alchemy and fragrance making, the line is formulated to combine and blend in layers to create a unique, personalized combination.

Hortus Sanitatis fragrance adds a splash of earthy intrigue to the Alchemist’s Garden

Hortius Sanitatis, the Latin name for Garden of Health, is named after one of the first natural history encyclopedias published in the 15th century. Gucci has already published a book of the same name with English photographer Derek Ridgers, who shot the Pre-Fall 2017 collection.

Gucci-The-Alchemist-Garden-Hortus-Sanitatis-Ingredients

Like the previous releases, Hortus Sanitatis is inspired by the endless customization of alchemy – its own scent profile combines two unique, ambery wood notes: papyrus and cedar. Vetiver root and bright ginger round out the botanical scent, and add a dash of sharpness to the otherwise earthy blend. It’s smoky, yet fresh. The scent is equally refreshing, cool and warm, earthy and smooth, just as soft and rough as described by the Gucci house.

However, Gucci encourages you to play with that profile, even if you do fall in love with the new perfume all on its own. Scents from The Alchemist’s Garden are formulated to be worn together, quite literally; this means you can spritz Hortus Sanitatis over a dab of Gucci’s perfumed oils, on your wrist next to another eau de parfum, or beneath Gucci’s acque profumate (or, ‘scented waters’).

Gucci-The-Alchemist-Garden-Hortus-Sanitatis

Like previous editions, Gucci Hortius Sanitatis comes in collectible packaging with a glass flacon in aqua blue, inspired by vintage apothecary vials. It is available as 100 ml Eau de Parfum at Gucci Boutiques and selected stores worldwide.

Gucci Bloom Ambrosia di Fiori

Gucci-Bloom-Ambrosia-di-Fiori-02.jpg

Gucci Bloom, an intense floral scent of tuberose and Chinese honeysuckle, is one of Gucci’s bestselling fragrances at the moment. It was created by perfumer Alberto Morillas in 2017. Then Acqua di Fiori and Nettare di Fiori followed in 2018, and early this year Gocce di Fiori arrived.

Ambrosia di Fiori is a new chapter of Gucci Bloom’s story written by Alessandro Michele and was, like the other Bloom flankers, created by Alberto Morillas. The Italian fashion house invites you to take a peek at a Greek god’s feast and taste some ambrosia. Like the original, Ambrosia di Fiori consists of jasmine, Rangoon creeper notes (Chinese honeysuckle), and tuberose. Vanilla of the original was replaced with Damascus rose and orris root.

Top notes: Jasmine bud, Rangoon creeper
Heart: Indian tuberose
Base: Rosa Damascena, Tuscan orris

Invoking a banquet of an ancient world, ambrosia was the sustenance of the Greek gods, thought to give immortality to those who drank it. The name of this precious nectar and the magic it evokes is woven into the scent’s vibrant bouquet. The blend begins with the original Gucci Bloom Eau de Parfum – a trio of Jasmine Bud extract, Tuberose, and Rangoon Creeper – combined with new ingredients that intensify the floral fragrance: the rare Velvety Orris – derived from Iris resin – originally used by ancient Greeks and Romans as an essential oil, and Damascena Rose – harvested in the early morning to give the powerful rendition of the flower. The perfume is more intense version of the original with an addition of sweet, rich and dense smelling rose.

 

Gucci-Bloom-Ambrosia-di-Fiori-05.jpgGucci Bloom Ambrosia di Fiori is available as a 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum Intense and comes in a lacquered burgundy red glass flacon. Gucci Bloom Ambrosia di Fiori is available at selected stores worldwide.

Gucci Opens Its First Boutique Dedicated To High Jewellery In Place Vendôme

Gucci-Place-Vendôme-Paris-02..jpg

If you’re Paris bound, then you’ll want to make sure a visit to Place Vendôme is on your list of things to do as Gucci has opened its very first boutique dedicated to fine and high jewellery.

If there’s one thing that Gucci’s Creative Director Alessandro Michele is absolutely obsessed with (well, aside from his muses Florence Welch, Harry Styles, Jared Leto and Lana Del Rey), it’s jewellery, evident in the numerous shots on his personal Instagram page which show him stacking his beloved rings and rows of eclectic-looking bracelets.

Gucci-Place-Vendôme-Paris-04..jpg

So it doesn’t come as a surprise that he has been tasked with creating the Italian luxury brand’s high jewellery and watch collection, several of which come with unique stones personally sourced by Michele himself. To celebrate this momentous milestone, Gucci is launching the collection (along with an assortment of fine jewellery pieces) at 16 Place Vendôme, the Italian luxury house’s first high jewellery boutique in Paris that’s situated alongside some of the world’s finest jewellers, like Boucheron, Bvlgari, Cartier, Chaumet and Van Cleef & Arpels.

Such an exceptional collection certainly deserves an equally remarkable setting. And the Place Vendôme, built in 1686 by the French King Louis XIV and home to many haute couture brands – Chanel, Bvlgari, Dior, Boucheron, Chopard, Piaget and Cartier among others  — is the perfect venue for Gucci’s newest boutique.

Presenting an elegantly muted design aesthetic, its stands out in stark contrast to Gucci’s other international boutiques that are abundant in distinctly amplified and exaggerated tints. A monochromatic mosaic floor, white marble, furniture carved out of ebonized wood, and antique mirrors – all add to the drama of the jewellery on display and bring out the inner charm of these precious gems.

Gucci-Place-Vendôme-Paris-03.jpg

Titled Hortus Deliciarum, named after the medieval illustrated encyclopedia – it comprises over 200 one-of-a-kind pieces that come in 3 distinct themes. The first consists of classic pieces that pay homage to eternal love, timeless classics rendered in coloured gemstones and precious diamonds. The second is an ode to the animal kingdom, evident in the diamond-encrusted lions, Ouroboros serpents and tigers found on a generous selection of rings and opulent bracelets, just to name a few. The third is all about singular solitaires with a maximalist allure; just picture your favourite pear-cut coloured gemstones (blush rosé topaz, honey hued imperial topaz, velvety green tourmaline) decked out with sparkling diamonds and finished with an exquisite setting that reinforces Michele’s maximalist aesthetic.

And if there are two words that can be used to describe the brand new boutique, it would be elegance and sophistication. Step within and you’ll find the boutique furnished with a monochromatic mosaic floor, with cabinets crafted from ebony wood lined with verde aqua satin that only serves to illuminate the precious jewellery within.
