Matvey Lykov for Gucci Viaggio's Lookbook

Matvey Lykov for Gucci Viaggio Lookbook


I love Paris as much I hate it. I hate it as much as I love it.

I wanted to explore other countries and be exposed to different cultures.

If I have to be somewhere, I just go and I’m not aware of anything around me.

I like the smell of rain, because it reminds me of my childhood in Russia.
