When Gucci comes knocking, you answer — and for Cinthia Sifa Mulanga, that knock came in the form of an exciting artistic collaboration with the Italian fashion house to celebrate one of its iconic bags. Gucci commissioned the 25-year-old artist, who rose to fame during the pandemic with her arresting and relatable depictions of Black female subjects trapped in interior spaces, to create a one-of-a-kind artwork. The final piece, called Moment, not only is created in Mulanga’s signature mixed-media style but also features Gucci’s Diana tote bag, made famous by Diana, Princess of Wales, in 1991.
