This haute new collaboration between Gucci and artist, Unskilled Worker is mind-blowing. Creative director, Allesandro Michelle fist discover London-based, self-taught artist, Helen Downie, on Instagram and initially invited her to take part in the brand’s Shanghai exhibition in 2015. On this second project, Alessandro and Helen worked closely to create a 40-piece capsule collection based on Downie’s illustrations. The artist also painted an exclusive piece for Gucci that will be available as a free download on the site. Alessandro’s eye for stand out artists is something to marvel at. Another exciting collection to feature!
“The name Unskilled Worker was so apt it just seemed so appropriate, it still does, I still really identify with that word because I’m just making the most of what I have on that day.”
