We know we’re well into the new year, but if you’re still not feeling ready to face it head on, how about a venture off the beaten path to reset? Whether you choose to travel to the countryside, a city or somewhere as-yet undiscovered, make sure you have Gucci’s new environmentally conscious collection in tow.
Expanding from the brand’s first Off the Grid collection, launched in 2019 and designed for those mindful of their environmental impact, Gucci Off The Grid Blue stays true to the vision of circular production with the addition of a striking new cobalt-blue colourway. All the pieces — duffle bags, backpacks, sneakers, small accessories, and ready-to-wear items — are versatile and made from recycled, organic, bio-based, and sustainably sourced materials, such as ECONYL®, a regenerated nylon made from discarded fishing nets, carpets, and other scraps, coupled with solvent-free recycled polyester (from polyethylene terephthalate, or PET, bottles) and other sustainable raw materials.
The collection references iconic designs such as the genderless Gucci Tennis 1977 sneaker and adds some new bag designs. Get ready to explore new destinations in sustainable fashion.
