Gucci's New Campaign Is For the Birds.

by Mickey Boardman

Perhaps that little bird that landed on Bernie Sanders podium the other night was a trendsetter. Gucci's new campaign, which debuts in magazines April 1st, features a cast of luscious and louche models accompanied by a flock of flamingos. Animals are a natural direction for Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele -- from the time he was an in-house accessory designer for the brand, he put embroidered bunnies and other cute creatures on bags. This ready-to-wear collection is its own menagerie, including a cat sweater, tiger backpack and loafers embroidered with snakes in addition to the cavalcade of floral separates. Fingers crossed that next season will be a collaboration with instagram star Pumpkin the raccoon!
