GUCCI is releasing a Japan-exclusive capsule collection in collaboration with the artist Yuko Higuchi on Thursday, February 2nd, 2023, at the GUCCI ROPPONGI and GUCCI AOYAMA stores.
GUCCI and Yuko Higuchi have continuously collaborated since joining forces for the GUCCI Spring Summer Children’s Collection in 2018. Higuchi has worked on the facade wall art of the GUCCI Osteria da Massimo Bottura Tokyo in Ginza and applied hand-painted designs on vintage bags restored by GUCCI artisans, among other creative endeavors, as part of the experimental pop-up shop “Vault.”
The “Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura Tokyo” features a fantasy world projection on its facade with characters, strange mushrooms, and animals residing in a forest setting. The items in the collection reflect this enchanting atmosphere.
The Gucci x Yuko Higuchi capsule collection for Japan only is releasing on Thursday, February 2nd, 2023. The exhibition will be available at Gucci stores in Roppongi, Aoyama, Nakami, Shinsaibashi Daimaru, Umeda Hankyu, and the Gucci official online shop.
