Gucci announced that it would be stepping up to the plate again with MLB to drop a new collaborative collection, exclusively through Gucci's Vault — the brand's experimental online concept store launched in 2021.
For the Gucci x MLB collaboration, you can expect the usual along with a few surprises here and there.
Branding from MLB teams — like the New York Yankees, Los Angeles Angels, and San Francisco Giants — decorate apparel pieces like varsity jackets and zip-up hooded jackets, per the campaign visuals of models dropping the upcoming release (no seriously, they're literally dropping the pieces from their hands).
The collection's hats make for a pleasant treat, as playfully-chic materials such as green sherpa and snakeskin take over co-branded caps.
Back in February, Gucci sent its FW22 collection down the runway, complete with a sporty-chic adidas collaboration — proof that creative director Alessandro Michele's got a thing for sports and athletics, especially admiring their retro appeal.
Then, there's Gucci and MLB, whose relationship dates back to Gucci's FW18 presentation followed by a 2019 limited edition Yankee capsule collection in 2019.
See, the latest from Gucci x MLB not only confirms their relationship status as "still together," but it pours into Michele's ever-evolving Gucci universe of fun and play.
Unlike the campaign's models literally dropping the collection's pieces, Gucci x MLB will be back at-bat to drop virtually on April 22.
