And he’s just been sighted really getting into the swing of things, having been snapped with a brand new item in the Italian house’s extensive catalogue. Papped in Manchester ahead of the new season kicking off this weekend, Grealish sported a white tee, black skinny-fit sweatpants and Nike sneakers. He carried a black vintage-style duffle bag – probably not the sort of thing you and I can afford to carry our sweaty gym kits around in – in a black variation of Gucci’s iconic GG supreme canvas.
It’s the kind of thing we can expect from Jack Grealish in his ambassadorial role. He has opted for one subtle, albeit large, piece from the luxury brand that has seen heightened success through logomania and its dual-branded collaborations with Adidas and The North Face and its Balenciaga Hacket Project.
Campaigns, however, are where Grealo will likely push his fashion credentials, and where we will see him in a new light. Take for instance those aforementioned ambassadors. We’ve seen Styles pose with lambs, goats and piglets in a 2018 Gucci campaign, Jared Leto who brought his own prosthetic head to the Met Gala, Lana Del Rey sprinted around a supermarket in a fern green coat with her signature lick of eyeliner, while Miley Cyrus also gucci-flora-gorgeous-gardenia”>posed up a storm with a collection of pets.
