At LACMA’s annual Art+Film Gala, Sabato de Sarno unveiled his first evening wear collection for Gucci dubbed Ancora Notte.

When Sabato De Sarno presented his first collection as Gucci’s creative director as part of Milan Fashion Week in September, his sleek vision of ready-to-wear — while reflective of today’s modern wardrobes — left many yearning for the dazzling glamour of former creative director Alessandro Michele. Well, at the star-studded Los Angeles Country Museum of Art (LACMA) Film + Art Gala yesterday, De Sarno quelled our curiosity by unveiling his first evening wear collection, Ancora Notte.

While De Sarno’s debut collection focused on the house’s new wardrobe for the day, Ancora Notte expanded that vision for life after dark. The collection, seen on today’s top models, including Mariacarla Boscono, Vittoria Ceretti, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Kirsty Hume, and more, reimagines many of the elements from Gucci’s S/S 24 collection, into sleek and slinky evening wear.

The cherry-toned patent leather micro shorts are paired with a scarlet draped gown defined by a seductive deep V neckline. Lace inserts of mini dresses are revamped into floor-length crystal embellished fringe, and flowing sequin skirts, are also a nod to De Sarno’s debut. While glamorous in their own right, the minimal designs harken to sleek 90s silhouettes, rather than the maximalism used in by the brand’s former creative lead.

Aside from the Academy Awards, the annual LACMA Art + Film Gala has long been one of Los Angeles’ premier fashion events. In partnership with Gucci, it’s been where Hollywood and fashion collide, making it the perfect place for De Sarno’s evening wear debut. Among the models and artists, A-listers like Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, Julia Garner, and Lupita Nyong’o came together to honour artist Judy Baca and filmmaker David Fincher.

The Gucci eveningwear collection by Sabato De Sarno is undoubtedly a turning point for the iconic fashion house. It not only redefines the concept of luxury but also sets a new standard of glamour for the heritage house. With the awards season fast approaching, we can rest easy that Gucci’s favourite A-listers are sure to end up on best-dressed lists around the world.
