Punk photographer Derek Ridgers shoots new Gucci book

Time to Guccify your library

Alessandro Michele is constantly giving us reason to Guccify our lives. The most recent is Gucci’s new limited-edition book titled Hortus Sanitatis – ‘The Garden of Health’ for those not up-to-date with their Latin. Showcasing the Pre-Fall 2017 collection (the one with the Glen Luchford-shot, Northern Soul inspired campaign) the 1000 copy run of the book will be available from Dover Street Market

Shot in Rome by photographer Derek Ridgers, who is known for his documentation of subcultures, the book features all of the best bits of Michele’s Gucci that we have come to know and love. Aside from the dreamy clothes and accessories that are naturally colourfully printed with lots of sparkle for good measure, they’re also accompanied by animals like cats and snakes. Though sadly, no skateboarding model holding a peacock

The new book comes in a red cotton pouch displaying a skull and crossbones and can be purchased from July 15th in the DSM London store. Paris-based Gucci fans will find the book at the Comme des Garçons Trading Museum in Paris available at a special signing on July 5th. You won’t want to miss out on securing a copy of this book – it’s sure to be a collector’s piece of Michele’s legacy in years to come, so make sure you get your copy before they all sell out. 

Hortus Sanitatis is available from Dover Street Market from July 15th. Head to the gallery above for previews of the book
