Watch the Gucci Creative Director at Work in His Roman Palace
When Alessandro Michele needs some inspiration, all he needs to do is look around his own office building. The Gucci creative director’s workspace is located in a Renaissance building in Rome and is “one of the few real palaces with Raphael as the architect.” Just imagine being surrounded by that history every day… His predecessor, Frida Giannini, relocated the creative offices there from Milan, and Michele feels “Rome is the perfect place to stay a little bit away from fashion.” In this video, he tells T Magazine how he “completely changed” the office when he moved in so it “feels like at home,” how he shares his office like “public space” with everyone in his team, and the direction behind his design style. “It’s not work; it’s my life. It’s like a love affair. It’s like a religion,” he said.
