Sir Elton John has officially announced his retirement, unveiling the poster and upcoming tour dates of 'Elton John: Farewell Yellow Brick Road'. Accompanying this release, Elton John excitedly publicized his thrilling collaboration with Gucci who will style and costume the entire spectacle. This fusion comes at no real surprise due to the fact that Alessandro Michele, Gucci's current creative director, has used Elton and his style legacy as inspiration for a capsule collection, pulling from the star's iconic archive of looks. Styled in the promo image, Elton is wearing a Gucci black satin notch lapel jacket complete with a green insect jacquard motif, black wool mohair trousers and slick black leather ankle boots emblazoned with his "EJ" initials and lizard detailing.

He kicks off his North American tour Fall of 2018 and has listed dates globally through 2020. When pondered on, is there any doubt in one's mind that Sir Elton John would leave the world's stage without the boldest, most fashionable tour yet? I think not. Peep the poster for the tour, as well as some of the Elton-esque looks from Gucci's Spring 2018 Ready-to-Wear below.
