Curated.Works: The Gucci New Gang – F/W 2015

Ever since Alessandro Michele became the creative director of Gucci, his collections have become one of the favourite subjects in the fashion illustration world. The clothes are more whimsical and full of great details. For this project, I invite Camille Pfister to illustration all of Alessandro‘s collections he has created so far.

First up, we have the F/W 2015 collection. The girls are dressed in some of the iconic pieces from the season, and for the first time ever, Camille has introduced a male character in this piece. I love the composition and once again, I am so curious to know what’s the conversation is about. It seems like the girl on the right is not impressed with the rest of the gang.

Here are my 2 questions for Camille about this particular illustration.

What’s the inspiration behind this illustration? 
When I first saw the Gucci fashion show, I thought the models evoked high school girls back from holidays on their first day of school. So, I draw a cool gang of friends chatting and interact with each others. As always in my illustration, the characters’ way of looking at each other (or don’t) makes you guess about their different relationships.
This is your first time to draw a male character, was there any challenge doing it? 
No particularly. The only difficulty was to keep his features manly while incorporating my trademark big sorrowful eyes.
Please stay tuned for the 2nd part of this series!
