Singer Florence Welch takes the spotlight in the June-July 2016 issue of Harper’s Bazaar, out on newsstands on May 24th. Photographed by Simon Procter, the famous redhead wears looks from Gucci’s fall 2016 collection inspired by the Renaissance. Named a brand ambassador for Gucci’s timepiece and jewelry line earlier this year, the singer can be seen wearing precious gems from Gucci’s Fine Jewelry line in the glossy feature.
In her interview, Florence talks about her adoration for Gucci’s creative director, Alessandro Michele: “I love the romance of what Alessandro does. Like me, he’s interested in making things beautiful but with this unsettling element; feminine but with an edge to it… [his] designs have all these snakes and tigers and bleeding hearts, a Baroque sensibility. It’s like he wants to give people his whole world. It feels really generous; it takes a lot of love.”
