Gucci: Blind for Love

Edition of 2000 copies

Nick Wapplington

A limited edition of 2000 copies, Blind for Love presents inspirational and backstage photographs by noted British artist Nick Waplington documenting the Gucci Cruise 2017 collection runway show, which was held in one of London's most historical landmarks, the Cloisters in Westminster Abbey. Gucci creative director Alessendro Michele's ode to the quintessential British culture and aesthetics, showcasing iconic English motifs such as garden flowers, King Charles spaniels and Union Jack, the collection juxtaposes punk attitude with classic British stateliness. In the best tradition of photo-reportage, Walpington captures candid moments behind the scenes before, during and after the events. The show's soundtrack featured a haunting version of the traditional english ballad "Scarborough Fair" and the lyrics of the song run as a refrain through the book, enhancing the evecative images.
