The luxury fashion house is committed to protecting the natural world and its animal kingdom as much as it is committed to the world of fashion and serving the fashionistas. Gucci’s love for the king of the world- the lion is pretty well-known and this year they took it a notch higher as Gucci joined ‘The Lion’s Share Fund’ in February 2020. Led by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) the initiative aims at tackling the crisis in nature, biodiversity, and climate across the globe. The Fund aims to raise over $100 million per year within the next five years and Gucci is one of the biggest contributors. The high-end fashion house’s creative director Alessandro Michele is interpreting this love for lions in the form of a newly born fine jewelry Lion Head Collection. The lion has been seen on several Gucci creations in the past such as in prints for ready-to-wear, Gucci Décor, and this time it is skillfully crafted into the House’s jewelry designs. The king of the jungle is seen ruling the collection too with the Lion Head playing the core motif of the collection. The head is further enhanced with diamonds in place of the creature’s eyes and is seen majestically holding colored gemstones in its teeth.
The lion head collection is cast in 18kt white and yellow gold into pieces like earrings, pendant necklaces, rings, and bracelets set with diamonds and colored gemstones. For those looking to make a bold, courageous statement can borrow some from the grand Gucci lion who surely looks regal.
