Nakhane Touré Teams Up With I-D & Gucci to Promote The New Gucci Bloom Fragrance

For decades, changes in the natural world have influenced writers, singers, and artists; although the necessity of the cherished buds and the winter blues [when the asphalt garden is at home ]can be questionable, modern creative artists prove that feeling the urban spirit soar means cultivating an inner world by venturing out into the natural one.

To promote their new fragrance, Gucci Bloom partnered with i-D to explore the many ways in which the ever-changing seasons affect artists’ creative processes. Four artists were interviewed regarding this topic; these artists include New York-based model Paloma Elsesser, London musician Rina Sawayama, illustrator Fee Greening and South African born and London-based musician, Nakhane.

In the interview, Nakhane shared how seasonal change affects their creative process. “When the light becomes less cold, less blue. There’s a little more yellow, more gold. Nature’s cruel, but nature can be really beautiful as well,” expressed Nakhane when asked what it is about the natural world that excites the artist’s creativity.

“I moved closer to a park on purpose. Literally, my partner wasn’t sure about the apartment: ‘Oh I don’t know,’ I was like… Do you see that view? We get to wake up to the green every day and it’s probably the best decision I’ve made in a while, you know. I love it.

I think sometimes we forget that we ourselves are nature and tend to separate from the rest of the world. I like the fact that earth is seasonal and your body as well: Your cells die, they regenerate… Our bodies are nature. I think that really helps me understand patience in my work. One day you’re hunched up wearing a coat in the cold, and the next the earth has tilted, the sun is closer and the light changes. In my mind, things might not be what I want right now but may happen later on. It’s good to wait and work towards it,” Nakhane shared.
