Men who pre­fer el­e­gant re­straint to sar­to­rial ex­cess could be for­given for think­ing Gucci left them be­hind when cre­ative di­rec­tor Alessan­dro Michele started de­liv­er­ing col­lec­tions that could be con­fused with tequila-fuelled hal­lu­ci­na­tions. While the types who can pull off lime-green coats and pink trousers, that’s you Jared Leto, are re­joic­ing, those of us who find brown busi­ness shoes ad­ven­tur­ous are cur­rently trem­bling like cow­ards at the sight of in­ter­lock­ing Gs. Wrist refuge is at hand with the re­lease of the ‘GG2570’ col­lec­tion, which re­ally taps into the la­bel’s so­phis­ti­cated ’70s hey­day. The squared-off case, sun-brushed di­als and pol­ished bezels ref­er­ence the ’70s of Robert Red­ford and Steve Mcqueen rather than Hair: The Mu­si­cal. Think classic, not clash­ing.

As for the ‘25’ in the col­lec­tion’s ti­tle, that’s Michele’s lucky num­ber. A fan of watches, he of­ten uses them in shows – you may have spot­ted them through the ca­cophony of colour peek­ing out be­neath a jacquard sleeve. While this piece comes in 41mm size, we sug­gest liv­ing large with the 44mm ver­sion in a steel bracelet. If you’re feel­ing ad­ven­tur­ous, but not quite pink-trouser ready, there’s also the Nato-style strap in green and red. guc­c­itime­less.com
