MATTHEW JAMAL FOR GUCCI EPILOGUE COLLECTION

Alessandro Michele, the Gucci artistic director, is as much a storyteller as he is a designer. He used his narrative ability to shed light on what usually takes place behind the scenes by unveiling the Epilogue Collection of the fashion house, including its series of monochromatic leather accessories. The Gucci design team became the cast of models in a live-streamed case. In other words, there's beauty in the process.

Similarly, the private moments alone with his bass provide the space and spectrum of emotions for composer and musician Matthew Jamal that produce his most meaningful performance. The talent, a student of classical and jazz music, models the leather goods range of the Gucci Epilogue Collection in the cinematic atmosphere of an intimate rehearsal session.

The beauty of the collection, like the best written songs, resides in the subtle details. The collection of bags and luggage influenced by the 70s includes the "GG" signature mark motif embossed on hip packs, backpacks, duffles and cross-body bags. The elegant black-out leather is complemented harmoniously by silver hardware that creates a timeless aesthetic.

The Epilogue, in the words of Alessandro Michele, is the final resolution of a largely present future." While it may be the last act of one of the sartorial stories of the designer, its influence, anecdotes and aesthetics will certainly survive.
