Gucci and MLB announce 2022 collaboration and release of Vault collection

It’s safe to say that Gucci loves leisure as much as fashion, getting ready to play ball and reconnecting with the Major League Baseball association for a new collaboration.

Gucci has announced that it will once again be intervening with MLB to launch a new collaborative collection, exclusively through Gucci’s Vault – the brand’s experimental online concept store launching in 2021.

For the Gucci x MLB collaboration, you can expect the usual with a few surprises here and there.

The brand of MLB teams – like the New York Yankees, Los Angeles Angels and San Francisco Giants – decorates garments like varsity jackets and zip-up hoodies, according to campaign visuals of the models who drop the next release (no seriously, they’re literally dropping the pieces out of their hands).

Hats in the collection are comfortable to wear, while playful and chic materials such as green sherpa and snakeskin take precedence over co-branded caps.

In February, Gucci launched its FW22 collection on the runway, featuring a sport-chic adidas collaboration – proof that creative director Alessandro Michele has a soft spot for sport and athletics, particularly admiring their retro appeal.

Gucci and adidas quietly dropped a few hats from the collection during the 2022 Oscars as a teaser for its June 2022 release. However, you probably missed it, getting caught up in The Slap drama.

Gucci added The North Face to its partnered showroom, launching their collaboration in 2020, followed by notable drops like the Vault-exclusive duffel bag.

Then there’s Gucci and MLB, whose relationship dates back to Gucci’s FW18 presentation followed by a 2019 limited-edition Yankee capsule collection in 2019.

See, Gucci x MLB’s latest not only confirms their relationship status as “still together,” but it pours into Michele’s ever-evolving fun and playful universe.

Unlike campaign models who literally drop pieces from the collection, Gucci x MLB will be back at bat to drop virtually on April 22.
