Spring 2021 Ad Campaign


Review of Gucci Spring 2021 Ad Campaign by Creative Director Alessandro Michele, Art Director Christopher Simmonds, and Photographers Daniel Shea and Leslie Zhang

Gucci gondoliers us into spring with a colorful and soothing new eyewear campaign. Creative director Alessandro Michele and art director Christopher Simmonds work with dual photographers Daniel Shea and Leslie Zhang.

The campaign has dual locations of Venice, Italy and Wuzhen, China. Both locales are characterized by the canals which criss-cross the city, and the campaign takes this charming feature as its basis. Whether in an Italian gondola or a Chinese riverboat, our two photographers conjure up idyllic scenes of a restful and meandering journey over the water. It’s a smart choice for an eyewear campaign, as we see lots of sunlight glinting magically off the water.

The short film lends music and a strong sense of character to these scenes. Dressed in delightfully eclectic Gucci style, our romantic protagonists enjoy each other’s company as they drift leisurely onward. It’s a bit of a bummer though that the film only features the Venice shoot; we’ve seen a lot of Venice before and would have loved to learn more about Wuzhen through the Gucci lens.

With its gorgeous visuals and magically relaxing atmosphere, this eyewear campaign hits our eye like a big pizza pie.
