Gucci Announces Sabato De Sarno as New Creative Director

Alessandro Michele's successor is finally here.


One of the most coveted roles in fashion has finally been filled. After months of speculation about who would replace previous Creative Director Alessandro Michele, Gucci has announced that Sabato De Sarno will be assuming the position. 

This is De Sarno’s first position heading a major fashion brand. He began his career at Prada, and has also worked with Dolce & Gabbana. Most recently, he was worked as fashion director for Valentino under Pierpaolo Piccioli, overseeing men’s and women’s ready-to-wear. 

Michele was able to bring Gucci to younger audiences through his gender-neutral styles and collaborations with celebrities like Harry Styles. He parted ways with Gucci in November. While we don’t yet know what changes De Sarno will bring to the label, we’re intrigued to find out when he presents his debut collection at Milan Fashion Week this September.
