Gucci unveils second chapter of its #24HourAce

First debuted in 2016, Gucci continues to create hype for its iconic sneaker Ace with the second chapter of #24HourAce, which is an Instagram-based project.

Like the first chapter, the fashion brand has invited a troop of creative minds to make a short film or animation for its iconic sneaker, shining a light on the evolution of the digital landscape. It is a departure from its previous chapter, which it is significantly influenced by the rise of digitalisation and Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) shaped content this time, reflecting the playful personality of Gucci Ace.

Gucci has only released the videos of 12 artists out of 20 thus far. Watch all the 12 videos below.
