At the internal entrance, personnel with protective suits checked the body temperature for each individual access. After all, the green light came after an agreement with the unions to further strengthen the corporate safety protocol drawn up.

Gucci has made company cars available to those who do not own cars or other means of getting around. To each employee an anti-infection kit consisting of 3 masks, 2 pairs of gloves, 1 pair of protective glasses. All of them also have sanitizing liquids for cleaning workstations and machinery, the cleaning and sanitization of which will still be guaranteed on a daily basis.

The opening is due to the need to start putting the fashion supply chain into motion. Already Carlo Capasa, president of the National Chamber of Italian Fashion, had indicated April 20 as the deadline, the maximum date, in order to have the collections to be presented in September, underlining that 41% of European fashion production is made in our country,  “Fashion restarts every six months with new collections that must be presented, sold and delivered. Capasa preparation times and seasons production times are long and unfortunately not so compressible. We have been closed for a long time, because it was right and it could not be done otherwise. We have been closed to the extent possible. Besides, we risk destroying a sector. If we don’t reopen our companies by April 20, it’s the alarm, we won’t have the technical time to deliver the autumn / winter collections that must be sent by July all over the world “. Furthermore, “we will not be able to produce the spring / summer 2021 collections» specifies Capasa, precisely those that occur in the September fashion weeks.

The commitment to the virus
Gucci had already taken the field to help in the fight against coronavirus, not only with donations (€ 2 million in support of two crowdfunding campaigns: in Italy, where the company is based, in favor of the Department of Civil Protection , in collaboration with Intesa Sanpaolo; and globally, in favor of the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund in support of the World Health Organization through the Facebook matchmaking campaign), but the brand has also made itself available to produce masks in a at the time when these protective devices were in short supply, responding to the appeal of the Tuscany region for the construction of over one million masks and 55 thousand pairs of medical suits.

“My sketchbook pages are based on photos and videos from my friends in Italy when the lockdown first happened. At the end of the sketchbook is when the lockdown had hit London and I wanted to delve into ideas of fantasy and other worlds from history and ancient myths. I went from feeling the need to document this strange time to enjoying the slow rhythm of creativity that this lockdown has inspired.” Artist @isabellacotier believes during this time, people will seek their own ways of being creative, whether through cooking, sewing, figuring out how to sunbath in a tiny patch of sunshine, or finding new and inventive ways to support frontline and essential workers. Creativity as a tool for release, for solidarity, for kindness is her message for the #GucciCommunity. #AlessandroMichele @alessandro_michele The #GucciCommunity stands behind aiding those most vulnerable in this crisis, join by donating now to the @unfoundation’s #COVID19 Solidarity Response Fund in support of the World Health Organization @who, and locally with @intesasanpaolo’s #ForFunding campaign which supports the Italian Civil Protection Department #DipartimentoProtezioneCivile.
