THIS MONTH’S NAMES, NUMBERS & EVENTS OF NOTE
GUCCI X JAYDE FISH
Gucci has teamed up with Colossal Media, a leader in hand-painted outdoor advertising, to create a large- scale mural for the streets of New York for 2017. The 2,500- square-foot-wall is to be found in the heart of Soho on Lafayette Street, between Prince and Spring streets. The brand will be collaborating with a number of artists over the course of the year, but first up, and on show until March 31, is a mural by San Francisco-based illustrator Jayde Fish. Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele first discovered Fish’s work on Instagram, and several of her illustrations were featured in the brand’s spring/summer 2017 womenswear collection.
