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
