Filmmaker Ridley Scott’s second film of 2021 is ready for release. After the medieval drama “The Last Duel,” Scott tackles the intrigue of the Gucci family in the star-studded “House of Gucci.”
Starring Adam Driver as Maurizio Gucci and Lady Gaga as Patrizia Reggiani, the film follows the story of their romance amidst the backdrop of the rise of the Gucci empire, specifically during the period in which Maurizio and Paolo (Jared Leto) started to take the reins from their fathers, Rodolfo (Jeremy Irons) and Aldo (Al Pacino), founder Guccio Gucci’s sons.
The film’s fashion is also notable. In fact, costume designer Janty Yates was given access to Gucci archives for inspiration and at some points, borrowed old Gucci apparel and accessories to dress the actors.
Set to a 1980’s soundtrack, the film follows the behind the scenes of one of fashion’s most iconic brands, from the company to the family dynamic and beyond.
