The ultimate ‘selfie’

Choose a piece of vintage Gucci that best reflects you and paint a self-portrait– why not?

Inspired by the renewed interest in painting across the generations, or maybe by today’s penchant for the holiday ‘selfie’, this Summer we’ve gone on location to take a Vault-eye look at self-portraiture, with a series of photographs of ‘artists’ in beautiful landscapes, as they paint a portrait of themselves. Taking inspiration from the fabulous silk foulards of illustrator and designer Vittorio Accornero de Testa or the vibrant butterfly pattern or vivid orange of a silk shirt or even the simplicity and line of a leather belt or elegant evening purse, we asked our artists to choose a piece of vintage Gucci that best reflected them and include it in their painting.
