Yes, you are seeing double! Our cover this month features one of the incredible looks from Gucci’s Twinsburg Collection, for which creative director Alessandro Michele recruited 68 sets of twins to walk the runway. He drew his inspiration from his own upbringing; his mother was an identical twin. “I am a son of two mothers: mum Eralda and mum Giuliana. Two extraordinary women who made their twinship the ultimate seal of their existence. They lived in the same body. They dressed and combed their hair in the same way. They were magically mirrored. One multiplied the other. That was my world, perfectly double and doubled.” Michele derived true joy from this reality, and we hope you feel the same reading this issue of VITA.
