Harmony Korine Captures Gucci Pre Fall 2019 in Pompeii and Herculaneum

By Pearl Fontaine

January 3, 2019

Back with the brand’s unmistakable maximalist edge, Gucci recently introduced its women’s Pre-Fall 2019 collection. Photographed by Harmony Korine, the house collaborated with the archaeological parks of Pompeii and Herculaneum—both UNESCO World Heritage Sites—bringing their historical significance to the attention of a new generation.

Models posed in front of the park’s ancient monuments, chomping on sandwiches and gulping down orange sodas, staged like tourists—their eccentric mix and match styling comparable to a Gucci-fied version of your stereotypical sightseer. Loud prints and bold colors once again dominated the collection, while many looks were completed with hats, layered necklaces, socks with sandals, and large, retro glasses.

While these Gucci tourists were all equally as eye-catching as the ruins of Pompeii themselves, a few of our favorite looks included the jungle-print skirt with the blue terrycloth Gucci-emblazoned sweatshirt, the silky printed pants and blazer pairing with the complementing headscarf, and the gray plaid jumpsuit with the checkered jacket and (the best part) the dogs with matching spiky collars.
