GUCCI’S LIMITED EDITION BOOK — EPIPHANY
Gucci has released a special limited-edition book of 1,000 copies created by photographer Ari Marcopoulos, titled Epiphany. Epiphany launches today (May the 5th) at Dover Street Market in New York, where Marcopoulos will be present to sign copies.
Epiphany comes in a bubble wrap envelope with a holographic Gucci snake sticker on the front. The book features images of the pre-fall 2016 women’s and men’s collections. All shot by Marcopoulos in Milan, the photographer captures the collection in his quintessential immediate and loose style.
With a glancing reference to Gucci’s famous Dionysus bag, Marcopoulos in the book says: ‘For seven days we photographed Alessandro’s collection. As the days went on our surroundings made me feel equally in Roman times of the past and solidly in the present and future. Above all we were having a good time which would have pleased Dionysus.’
