Without a shadow of a doubt, Gucci has been one of the most hyped brands of recent memory. Once a brand dedicated to producing bland leather bags for middle aged business women, the Italian imprint now effortlessly blends high fashion with swanky streetwear, and now, they’ve taken the wraps off the Knitted Balaclava.
Hitting on Fall/Winter 2018‘s boldest face mask trend, this Gucci piece comes in a black, off white, and beige colourway with jacquard mirror “GG” logos throughout. The mask features cut-outs for the eyes and mouth, a ribbed knit hem at the collar, and tonal stitching. Available now via SSENSE, the Gucci Knitted Balaclava will set you back a cool £175. With creations like this, it’s easy to see why Gucci was named as one of the buzziest brands during Milan fashion week, just above the likes of Fendi and Prada.
