IN­SPI­RA­TION CAN strike any­where, any time, and for Gucci cre­ative di­rec­tor Alessan­dro Michele it was dur­ing a stay at the leg­endary Chateau Mar­mont in West Hol­ly­wood. Af­ter ad­mir­ing the in-room laun­dry bag printed with the ho­tel’s un­of­fi­cial mas­cot, Pan, he repli­cated it with draw­string han­dles and sent it down the run­way for his Cruise 2019 col­lec­tion. Pan – de­picted on the orig­i­nal foun­tain in the ho­tel’s court­yard colonnade and con­sid­ered god of the wild, shep­herds and their flocks – and the ho­tel’s me­dieval-style type­face are one of the key de­tails of the new Cruise col­lec­tion. Both are splashed across Michele’s ready-to-wear of­fer­ings and on bold, brightly coloured bags. With only 63 rooms and suites, and a host of cel­e­brated ten­ants, Chateau Mar­mont is a cer­ti­fied Hol­ly­wood land­mark. So if you can’t get your hands on its cov­eted ameni­ties, at least for one sea­son you can get the next best thing.
