Alessandro Michele saddened all Gucci fans, as he made an interesting decision. Alessandro Michele has been the creative director of the famous fashion house for seven years, and today, it has been announced that he is leaving the company as well.
In the aftermath of his departure, Gucci will never be the same and his successor will have a very difficult task on their hands. Marco Bizzari was one of the people who reacted to the situation; "There are times when paths part ways because of the different perspectives each one of us may have.
Today an extraordinary journey ends for me, lasting more than twenty years, within a company to which I have tirelessly dedicated all my love and creative passion. During this long period Gucci has been my home, my adopted family.
To this extended family, to all the individuals, who have looked after and supported it, I send my most sincere thanks, my biggest and most heartfelt embrace. Together with them I have wished, dreamed, imagined. Without them, none of what I have built would have been possible.
To them goes my most sincerest wish: may you continue to cultivate your dreams, the subtle and intangible matter that makes life worth living. May you continue to nourish yourselves with poetic and inclusive imagery, remaining faithful to your values.
May you always live by your passions, propelled by the wind of freedom"- he wrote on Instagram.
