Indeed, Alessandro Michele recently told British Vogue, "We are a big brand, so we have a responsibility to take care of our industry,” Michele explained of the house shift towards “fashion that has a longer life”. This Gucci scenario might go down as best so far in the company's recent fashion mashups with such brands as Junya Watanabe, Supreme and Maison Margiela.
