GUCCI LAUNCHES FLUIDITÉ
After a first edition called “Influence”, Gucci now unveils “Fluidity”, the second issue of its millennial magazine. Launched in the framework of education, equality and justice, the biannual makes an inventory of a generation without borders. This is a review with opinions and reflection well beyond the genre; such is the concept of “fluidité”. In order to carry out this project, editor-in-chief Nicholaia Rips chose to invite many committed personalities. Through this edition, Gucci gives us a new perspective on gender fluidity.
FASHION IS BECOMING GREENER
The fashion giants are committed to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. Indeed, Adidas, Hugo Boss or the Kering Group have signed “the charter of the fashion industry for the climate action ” on the occasion of COP24, launched by the UN and supported by the designer Stella McCartney but also by Marco Gobbetti, CEO of Burberry. The fashion industry is finally going green after having been the target of permanent criticism for its environmental footprint. By signing this text, these brands are committing to putting energy saving measures in place. The idea is to favour sustainable fabrics and above all, reduce their CO2 emissions by 30% by 2030.
