Following the fresh debut of Gucci Ancora at Milan Fashion Week, the It-couple stars in the House’s latest campaign, Gucci Valigeria. The visuals nod to the brand’s legacy as well as ushering in a new era of adventure and luxury travel that resonates with Sabato De Sarno’s vision. Anthony Seklaoui’s lens captures the intimacy of travelling together, with the two dressed casually yet sophisticated while carrying pieces from the Gucci Savoy collection. This includes GG Supreme duffle bags, backpacks, sturdy suitcases, and trolleys with the GG monogram and the Web stripe. Additionally, the advertisement showcases new designs marked by bright leather details and embossed GG rubberised leather styles.

After taking over the streets of London last month, Burberry travels to South Korea to unveil the next instalment of Burberry Streets in the bustling district of Seongsu in Seoul. Immersive experiences, installations, and events are in the works to celebrate the brand’s hallmarks while bringing contemporary British luxury to life. Not to be missed from the series are the Seongsu Shoe and Seongsu Bottle—two micro pop-ups offering the newest shoes and hot water bottles from the AW23 collection—as well as the Petal Maze, an installation inspired by the English rose. Elsewhere, symbols of the house will be visible around the city, while the purple rose print will appear on flags and buildings in Seongsu. Visitors should also not miss out on Norman’s pop-up—a North London cafe known for its British fare. 

The Seongsu Rose is open until November 5, 2023, and bookings can be made here

The same collection will additionally be expanded to H&M Home Selection, which offers an elegant yet fun take on casual luxury.
