Gucci is pleased to announce that South Korean actress Gianna Jun will star in a special advertising campaign dedicated to the House’s iconic accessories: watches, jewellery and eyewear. Conceived by Creative Director Frida Giannini, the campaign will be shot this weekend in London by photographer Solve Sundsbo, and will launch in January 2015.


Gianna Jun, famous for her wide-ranging roles, which span comedy to action, has long had an association with Gucci, both on and off screen, and has attended many of the House’s events, most recently the autumn/winter 2014-15 fashion show and after-party in Taipei.


Commenting on the collaboration, Frida Giannini says: “Gianna Jun has just the type of natural beauty and sensual sophistication that is perfect for a Gucci woman. Her contemporary femininity is well suited to our accessories, which she will bring to life in this new campaign.”


Gianna Jun says: “I am delighted to be collaborating with Frida Giannini on this new campaign for Gucci, as I have always loved her collections and the style of the House.”


Gianna Jun wore Gucci Cruise 2015 chamomile color double breasted trench coat, Gucci Bamboo Daily large top handle bag in black leather with bamboo closure, Diamantissima Horsebit sunglasses, Horsebit rings in 18kt white gold and diamonds.

She also wore an exclusive, precious stainless steel wristwatch from the Horsebit Watch Collection. This timepiece features the signature equestrian horsebit motif with 92 diamonds  encircling a white mother-of-pearl dial, as well as three diamond indexes at three, six and nine o’clock, and the Gucci logo at 12 o’clock.

Oliver Sweeney - The Cobbler-in-Chief's Dinner Party

On a crisp Autumnal night in late October, OS held an intimate dinner at the rooftop bar of the NoMad Hotel on Broadway in New York City, to mark St Crispin's Day – the patron saint of shoemaking. With steak and champagne, as well as a number of prominent American editors, it’s fair to say they celebrated in true Sweeney style and brought their idiosyncratically modern British take on traditional style to a new Stateside audience.
