What is Gucci Cosmos?

Gucci Cosmos is a travelling archival exhibition showcasing the history, heritage and craftsmanship luxury Italian fashion house Gucci, from 1921 to the present day.

Following its successful debut in Shanghai in April, the immersive travelling exhibition will touch down in London on 11 October 2023.

The exhibition is a celebration of Gucci’s rich and diverse legacy and a glimpse into its future vision.

Gucci Cosmos is divided into nine immersive installations, each telling a different story of Gucci’s evolution and innovation. The exhibition was envisioned and designed by contemporary British artist Es Devlin and curated by Italian fashion theorist Maria Luisa Frisa.

It features a collection of the most iconic and timeless designs from its 102-year history, as well as some rare and unique pieces that have shaped the brand’s identity and influence over the years. Including, Gucci bags and luggage dating back to the mid-20th century and pieces by former creative directors Tom Ford, Frida Giannini, Alessandro Michele, and new creative director Sabato De Sarno.
