“It is quite difficult to define my universe – or any other kind of universe – in just a few words. The fact that we use the word ‘universe’ means that we are referring to something enlarged, something big. My Gucci universe is inclusive. It fragments to recreate in a contemporary way. It tries to achieve chemical effects through the use of different agents. It is a possible universe that sometimes uses an impossible language. I like being in this universe, because it gives me more possibilities.” – Alessandro Michele
