There are a lot of trends that come and go and some that last for ever. Gucci presents their cruise collection with nothing but the classics that makes us remember why we love Gucci.
Amongst having their cruise collection, it wouldn’t be extraordinary if it wasn’t in a unique place and Palatina Gallery at Pitti Palace could not have been more appropriate.
The attendees were not only given the fashion show, but also a tour of the gallery. The show was also a part of the multi-faceted cultural project that will help to restore, preserve and improve the Boboli Gardens. Dating back to the 16th century, the gardens are being preserved for future generations and house a “unique ecosystem” of flora and fauna that were brought to Tuscany from various corners of the globe, centuries ago.
Marco Bizzarri, President and CEO of Gucci, says: “This collaboration represents a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and sustain Florence’s cultural splendour and I would like to thank all the institutions that are involved. Gucci is a global brand with strong roots in Florence. The success we have achieved in recent years through the vision of our Creative Director, Alessandro Michele, is reliant upon the skills, spirit of innovation, passion and abilities of the craftspeople and everyone else who works for the brand in Florence and the surrounding area.” Bizzarri continued, “following the presentation of the last two Cruise collections, in the art district of New York in 2015 and in the cloisters at London’s Westminster Abbey in 2016, staging the next Cruise collection show in the heart of Florence has special meaning, particularly as Alessandro is constantly inspired by the city’s Renaissance masterpieces.”
Although the the show was a hit, there was a striking outfit that had many people outraged. Did Gucci Rip Off Dapper Dan?
