Florence, Italy, after darkish. A Cadilac Seville pulls up on the abandoned cobbled side road out of doors the tiny front to the Gucci leather-based items store. Torn posters decorate the partitions, a mild in the window of the upstairs rental comes on.
You’d be forgiven for considering this used to be a gap scene from a film, however this is in reality all scale fashions, constructed through photographer Felix Hernandez in collaboration with Hot Wheels and Gucci, to have a good time Gucci’s one hundredth anniversary. And all of it suits within a antique taste Gucci suitcase.
Hot Wheels, the toy car corporate cherished through all small boys made a restricted version 1/sixty fourth scale style of the Gucci Cadilac Seville from 1982 as a part of the Gucci anniversary celebrations. It is the first haute couture collaboration for Hot Wheels and the first legit collectable from Gucci. All this wanted one thing impressive so Felix Hernandez stepped as much as the process.
The undertaking is referred to as Valigia da Viaggio nel Tempo, which interprets more or less as Time commute suitcase (sure, like the whole lot in existence, it sounds higher in Italian!). Felix says he sought after to create one thing truly particular for this undertaking, and that it used to be an actual pleasure to paintings on.
I made up our minds to move additional and no longer simply making a photograph manufacturing, however as neatly making a collectible piece through recreating a miniature diorama of Gucci’s first store in Florence, within a wood field that stands as a “commute in time suitcase”, which incorporated the Hot Wheels x Gucci restricted version scale car. – Felix Hernandez
I should say that the consideration to detail is completely implausible, going so far as running electrical lights and rubble in the side road. Aside from the undeniable fact that the car wasn’t made at the time of the unique Gucci store, you truly may nearly be fooled into considering that this used to be actual. Here are a couple of of the in the back of the scenes pictures:
Felix says that this used to be “one his maximum cherished tasks up to now” and I will be able to perceive why. The precision and care that has long gone into this undertaking is simply mind-blowing.
Only 5,000 items of this limited-edition miniature model of the ’82 style had been to be had for $120 each and every but it surely’s unhealthy information if you wish to get one as they’re now it sounds as if already sold out.
