If there’s a single factor to be gleaned from the new trailer for Ridley Scott’s impending Gucci loved ones biopic, it is that even when every thing is all Gucci, not everything is necessarily, perfectly, all Gucci. But at the incredibly the very least, the fits are going to be superior.
Established in the lap of Italian luxurious from the late 1970s to the mid ’90s, Household of Gucci centers on the story of Maurizio Gucci—the sick-fated heir to his grandfather Guccio Gucci’s storied Italian home, portrayed by Adam Driver—and his spouse Patrizia Reggiani, the Italian socialite and Elizabeth Taylor lookalike who would finally serve 16 several years for orchestrating Maurizio’s murder, performed by none other than Lady Gaga. All that by yourself should tell you that we’re gonna get some loud fits, gaudy jewelry, and luxe-if-extremely-time period-particular Italian tailoring in this movie, but as the trailer confirms, this is going to be a accurate costume extravaganza.
Definitely, Gaga’s dressed-to-the-nines Patrizia steals the sartorial spotlight, but Driver’s mild-mannered turn as Maurizio also presents some much necessary subtly, replete with some pretty good dress shirts, sharp lapels, enviable tortoise aviator eyeglasses, and a genuinely fantastic head of hair. There is an Italian ease to his dressing here—as he suggests in the trailer’s voiceover, “I’ve been a Gucci all my lifestyle.” Suffice to say, from riding a literal horse for Burberry to stepping into Maurizio’s proverbial Gucci horsebit loafers, it’s been a huge capital-F Style 7 days for Adam Driver.
