Lions have been a key motif of house creative director Alessandro Michele’s creative vision since he began designing collections for Gucci five years ago.
Resembling strength, courage, power, wisdom and nobility, the Lion Head is found within many of Gucci’s collections, such as in prints for ready-to-wear, Gucci Décor and crafted into the house’s jewellery designs, starting from fashion pieces in silver to a new collection of fine jewellery.
For the newly-born fine jewellery Lion Head Collection, the majestic creature is cast in 18kt white and yellow gold into earrings, pendant necklaces, rings and bracelets set with diamonds and coloured gemstones.
In each case the Lion Head is the focal point, with diamonds used for the creature’s eyes and coloured gemstones held in its teeth.
The Lion Head and Gucci’s many other animal motifs are symbolic of the House’s commitment to protect the natural world.
Gucci joined The Lion’s Share Fund in February 2020. This is a unique initiative, raising much-needed funds to tackle the crisis in nature, biodiversity and climate across the globe.
