AGAINST THE WIND: “Wednesday” actor Percy Hynes White attended his first fashion show on Friday in Milan, taking in Gucci’s fall 2023 men’s collection, which had models parading around a rock band jamming on a circular dais.
“It’s pretty cool,” he said before the show, pausing for some photos with Korean pop star Kai and Gucci chief executive officer Marco Bizzarri.
Gucci’s hip-dockworker look for next season might look right at home in Hyne White’s hometown of St. John’s, Newfoundland, which is known for its rugged weather.
“You can like walk up the street like, completely horizontally when it’s windy. It’s crazy,” said the actor, who now lives in Toronto.
Told Marc Ribot’s Ceramic Dog, a “noise rock” trio, would be the featured attraction, Hynes White was intrigued. “I’m very excited to see. I don’t know the band.”
Also taking in the show was actor Idris Elba, musician Nick Cave and Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey.
Gucci was the first big show of men’s fashion week in Milan, which runs through Sunday. It was a closely watched display as it featured the first collection realized by Gucci’s design studio without creative director Alessandro Michele, who exited the brand last November after an acclaimed seven-year stint.
