“Gucci believes that sustainability—at all levels—involves fostering this respect: respect for the people we share our planet with as well as for the environment.

With the collection comprising of unisex wears, from bags to sneakers and accessories, all items are carefully created using synthetic fabric, organic, bio-based materials like ECONYL. Made from regenerated nylon (from abandoned fishing nets, old carpets and other scraps—including plastics that harm marine life and old materials that will likely end up in landfills) coupled with solvent-free recycled polyester (from PET bottles) as well as recycled materials and more sustainable alternatives.

For example, Gucci revisits its iconic GG logo, but this time it’s made of 100% regenerated polyamide and the Tennis 1977 sneaker is not made of animal materials. Even the packaging reflects Gucci’s commitment to off-setting their carbon footprint: All items are shipped in FSC-certified recycled cardboard box and a recycled nylon dust bag.

The 37-piece collection is just one component of Gucci’s path toward a more sustainable future. Off the Grid is an extension of Gucci’s program Circular Lines, an ongoing initiative to implement a circular production that aims to reduce waste by reintroducing byproducts back in to the supply chain.
