HarperCollins Italia will be publishing the book by philosopher Emanuele Coccia and Gucci Creative Director Alessandro Michele. It will also be published by Day Street in the US, by 4th Estate in UK and by Hanser in Germany.

For the first time Alessandro Michele, Creative Director of Gucci, uncovers and reveals his world with the philosopher Emanuele Coccia. The result of their encounter is an exploration that reaches the pure essence of Michele’s creations, showing how his work ultimately revolutionized the contemporary fashion system.  Michele is transforming fashion: with him, dressing is a universe that allows women and men to live in a different way. All through the pages of this book fashion becomes the place where all the artistic disciplines tend to, to bring a new form to life.

A title that will appeal not only to fashion and celebrities lovers, but also to readers passionate about art and philosophy and will become a must-read for students and professionals linked to fashion and design industry.

Some reading material will be ready soon (an introduction and the first chapters).
