Gucci introduces the 500 by Gucci Collection

An new collaboration between two iconic Italian brands, designer Gucci and car manufacturer Fiat, launches this month. 500 by Gucci Collection is inspired by the special edition Fiat 500, which has been customised by Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini in partnership with Fiat’s Centro Stile (style centre). This line of ready-to-wear clothing and accessories features the House’s signature green-red-green web, and the collection mirrors the 500 by Gucci car with its contemporary contrast of black and white. Tracksuits, bombers, polos and T-shirts are available, while the GG pattern appears across the pilot cases, duffle bags, backpacks, small leather goods and hats. A watch, sunglasses, leather driving gloves are also available as well as silk foulards and blankets in silk-wool. The 500 by Gucci Collection first debuted at Gucci flagships in Milan and Geneva, coinciding with the launch of the 500 by Gucci at Milan Fashion Week and at the Geneva International Auto Show. The collection will be available mid-April at select Gucci stores worldwide and online at
