Come resort season, Gucci is known for their roaming runways with previous shows set in New York’s DIA-Art Foundation, the Cloisters at Westminster Abbey in London and the Palatina Gallery in Florence’s Palazzo Pitti, but for 2019, they’re taking it to a whole new level and it might just be the most Instagrammable one yet.
The Italian fashion house has announced that it’s set to hold its upcoming Cruise 2019 presentation on May 30, 2018 in the Provencal city of Arles, France, and more specifically, at the Alyscamps, one of the most famous Roman necropolises of the ancient world, located just outside the town’s walls.
An UNESCO World Heritage site, if the photos are anything to go by, it’s set to provide an incredible backdrop for Gucci Creative Director Alessandro Michele’s 2019 Cruise Collection.
The city of Arles is said to have inspired numerous artists including Vincent Van Gogh and Pablo Picasso. With Alessandro previously using his show locations as references in his collections (remember those Union Jack flags from last year’s Westminster Abbey spectacle?) we can’t wait to see what happens next May.
