Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele’s ode to quintessentially British culture and aesthetics, showcasing iconic English motifs such as garden flowers, King Charles spaniels, and the Union Jack, the collection juxtaposes punk attitude with classic British stateliness. In the best tradition of photo-reportage, Waplington captures candid moments behind-the-scenes before, during, and after the event. The show’s soundtrack featured a haunting version of the traditional English ballad “Scarborough Fair,” and the lyrics of the song run as a refrain through the book, enhancing the evocative images.
