The set, according to the Italian label’s Instagram, was meant to reflect “the work of a designer — the act of cutting, slicing, reconstructing materials and fabrics to create a new personality and identity with them.”

Guillotining certainly counts as cutting and slicing. Hats and heads off to Gucci!
