During Art Basel Miami Beach, Gucci is opening the doors to its long-awaited boutique in the Design District. A highlight of the occasion is the brand’s continued collaboration with Coco Capitán, the 25-year-old Spanish artist and photographer who renders handwritten phrases like “I want to go back to be living a story” and “What are we going to do with all this future?” as standalone artworks. A selection of these were first featured in the label’s fall 2017 collection, on bags, tops, and sewn into the lining of coats. In Miami, her unaffected penmanship graces the store’s façade. Capitán is also unveiling a new Art Wall—the latest in a series of public murals commissioned by Gucci. Installed in Wynwood, it joins two others by Capitán, currently on view in Milan and New York City.
