Guard your wallets.

Hot off a successful (not to mention, uber chic) Met Gala, Alessandro Michele is back in the limelight again. This time, the Gucci designer is revealing a brand new project that will be sure to make your wallet ache. 

On May 12, the Italian fashion house is releasing a 20-piece capsule collection for Net-a-Porter, which will feature an exclusive 19th century-inspired floral tapestry print on a collection of accessories, ready-to-wear and shoes.

According to WWD, the collection is priced between $270 for an iPhone case and $5,300 for an applique silk-blend organza gown. Gucci signatures — cashmere sweaters, the brand's Dionysus bag, mules and sneakers — are also part of the exclusive offering. 

The partnership is a natural one for the retailer, who has carried Michele's Gucci collection since he joined the brand in 2015. Since then, Gucci has become one of the site's top sellers. "The take-up from customers has been really incredible around all categories. We are selling loafers, but we are selling tons of RTW and fine bags, so this is really an across-category initiative," Net-a-Porter president Alison Loehnis told the trade.

This isn't Net-a-Porter's first time nabbing a desirable capsule. In April of 2015, the retailer was the first to carry Chanel jewelry online, boasting the exclusive on the Chanel Coco Crush collection.
