One thing’s for certain: It’s a big diversity push from one of the most visible luxury houses, in a sphere where racial diversity continues to be woefully lacking.

Pining for Gucci in Trump’s New World

In the waning days of his administration, George W. Bush sent me $300. Money would help us forestall recession, the president told us, if we went out and spent it. He didn’t add what he must have hoped, that money would help us forget, like the $20 your no-show dad slips you when he comes by. I don’t remember what I did with that $300, but I think of it when I hear about a bridge collapsing.

Build a personalised wardrobe with Gucci

#FirstClassFriday: Build a personalised wardrobe with Gucci

Ever wondered what it’s like to step into the shoes of Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele? Here’s how you can

The daring maximalist who turned the house on its head with his bold eccentricity is affording customers a slice of his uninhibited creativity. By way of an extensive Do It Yourself programme available at their Italian flagship on Via Monte Napoleone, Gucci — and Alessandro Michele — fans can now try their hand at personalising a whole host of products. Launching recently with customisable Dionysus handbags, these are the latest additions to the agenda: Men’s tailoring, knitwear, unisex jackets and footwear for both men and women.

First up? Let’s talk eveningwear. Gents are afforded ownership of their blazers, tuxedo jackets and coats with the freedom to pick out fabrics, buttons and linings of their choice — with even a range of shirts and knitwear that’s also monogrammable. Stake claim on the season’s most covetable outerwear by personalising the Gucci shearling denim jacket with an arsenal of animal motif patches of your choosing, and, picking out your own unique lining. Much prefer a sportier cover-up? Get creative with the bomber jackets instead.

And with the range of customisable casual, evening and outerwear, Michele truly has you covered — it’s on to the shoes from here. The house’s sneakers and mules are canvas to your touch. Mark them with initials or even a tiger’s head patch that’s available for mules, depending on the combination of colour, material and horsebit finishing that’s picked out. Lace-ups, monk straps and loafers are monogrammable, and initials are to be discretely stamped on the insole of the shoes. Classic.

Gucci’s Do It Yourself programme is available at the flagship boutique in Italy, located at Via Monte Napoleone, 5/7, 20121, Milan.
