Editors’ Pick: Gucci’s Off The Grid Collection Featuring Jane Fonda

In case you were not aware, Film Icon Jane Fonda’s life has had many acts. The depth of her expansive life and career was chronicled in the 2018 documentary “Jane Fonda in Five Acts.”

Always an activist involved in several cases from the delegitimization of the Vietnam War, social injustice, feminist cases, the Iraqi Wars, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and more the Poor People’s Campaign, and environmentalist causes. And though Jane is an esteemed actress, winning two Academy Awards, seven Golden Globe awards, a Primetime Emmy, and an AFI Lifetime Achievement award, these accolades have not kept away from being intimately involved in causes that are near and dear to her.

After sixty plus years in the film industry, Jane Fonda has not slowed. In fact, she has a new gig, or you could say another act.

You will find this octogenarian in Gucci’s new environmentally friendly collection, Off The Grid. Designed for those mindful of their environmental impact, Gucci Off The Grid uses recycled, organic, bio-based and sustainably sourced materials, including ECONYL, a regenerated nylon made from nylon offcuts and pre- and post-consumer waste. Fonda is featured in the campaign video Lil Nas X, King Princess, Miyavi and David de Rothschild.

“The collection is the result of teamwork; everybody brought something to it. And in the campaign, too, there is this idea of dialogue among people building something new. I imagined that we could build a treehouse in a city [center], all together, like kids playing in the park. Because all of us need to build this house or to find out that our planet exists, even where it seems it’s not there, or it’s far away,” explains Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele.

The Off The Grid collection contains genderless luggage, ready-to-wear garments, accessories and footwear. Along with the video, Alessandro Michele employed Harmony Korine to shoot urban dwellers living in a rustic treehouse. The treehouse and the simple way of life it represents becomes a metaphor for the desire to escape conventional life and enjoy the experience of living more off the grid.
