A clear reference to the ’80s and the chenille suits that in those years were depopulated at every latitude, Gucci has just presented two shell suits, printed in jacquard and consisting of a matching jacket and trousers, in ECONYL® nylon.
A couple of weeks ago we had already told you about the first sustainable collection “Off the Grid”, with the campaign created by Alessandro Michele, starring Jane Fonda and shot by Harmony Korine, and the Gucci Circular Lines project, characterized by sustainability in all its forms such as minimizing emissions and using recycled, organic materials, such as ECONYL®, based on organic and sustainable origin, including regenerated nylon obtained from pre and post-consumer waste. ECONYL® in fact is an eco-sustainable fabric made by selecting and cleaning waste materials to find the original nylon fibres of the product which are then regenerated to produce a material very similar to virgin nylon. After this process a textile yarn is produced ready to be used.
Actually, the two shell suits are not sold together but each piece is a separate piece, obviously once matched the garments are perfect together and just as perfect for the coming winter. The jackets and trousers are produced in two colors, orange and black, and feature an all-over jacquard “GG” print.
Gucci’s two ECONYL® nylon shell suits are already available here.
