Gizmo and his entire band of Mogwai friends were undoubtedly the stars of the final Spring/Summer 2023 Gucci show, with the all-twins cast wearing several pieces featuring the gremlins image. Sometimes printed on large evening gowns, sometimes turned into gadget accessories. We were actually able to see miniature Gremlins dolls wearing small leather bracessitting inside bags or hanging as key rings from trousers.

Although it was unexpected, the presence of Gremlins in this collection, which had as its theme “duality and multiplicity of identities”actually made perfect sense as mentioned QG : “Gremlins, if you remember, tend to multiply and have many different personalities, first sometimes evil, other times softer”.

As the Italian fashion house explains on Instagram, the image of Gremlins was really a means to Alessandro Michelethe artistic director of Gucci, to illustrate “legend” this duality: “We welcome all our different selves within us, whether they are cute, smart, mischievous, intelligent or dangerous”.

As if to further revive the Gremlins mania, skateboarders’ beloved brand, Supreme also revealed, right at the same time, a collection featuring the image of the little hairy beasts, which were featured on hoodies, basketball jerseys or even skateboards.
