Italian fashion label Gucci inaugurated a museum in Florence Monday, showcasing the luggage and high-end clothing that have fueled the company’s success. Located in the Palazzo della Mercanzia, the museum is only a few steps away from the 13th century Palazzo Vecchio and Michelangelo’s David. The museum features an exhibit showing how their logo has evolved since Guccio Gucci, a former porter at the London’s Savoy hotel, founded the company in 1921. Covering 18,460 square feet over three floors, the Gucci Museo is arranged by theme and not in chronological order. In the private basement are the Gucci archives. On the ground floor will be a coffee shop and bookstore just downstairs from a display of handbags, red carpet outfits, and other archival pieces from Gucci. On the second floor of the museum is a display of garments and artworks that are emblazoned with the GG logo. Ahead of the public opening, some 200 celebrities, including the Vogue magazine chief Anna Wintour and US artist Bill Viola, attended a party held in the 14th-century palace in central Florence where the exhibits are installed. Admission to the museum will be 6 euros with half going to help restore the City of Florence.
The Geneva International Motor Show opened to the public from 03 to 13 March, presenting more than 260 exhibitors and more than 175 world and European premieres. Check out some of the amazing vehicular exhibitions that debuted at the show. And if you like a specific car, just copy and paste the name and Google it for more independent info.
The Italian luxury brand takes the concept of customization a bit further than most of the competitors in its bracket by introducing the Made To Order “Lettering” Service exclusively online and in select Prada boutiques. Backpacks, trolleys and tote bags can be customised with letters that come in pop art-tastic colours and prints. Prada isn’t the only label to offer a personalised service. Louis Vuitton launched “Mon Monogram” in 2008 with its popular Speedy handbag and Keepall travel bag. But the Prada brand just (to me) seems a bit steezy-er.
In addition to Oakley, Gucci will also be rolling out 3D eyeglasses to target the high-end consumer electronics shopper. Gucci’s version bears its familiar green and red web stripe detail at the temples and center brow bar, and a “Gucci 3D” logo on the right lens. The Gucci 3-D glasses contain a high tech multi-layered mirrored coating which allows the wearer to view themselves in a mirror without distortion. The mirrored coating not only provides a premium look as well as offers superior viewing and contrast enhancement, but also allows over 98 percent of visible light through, therefore not affecting viewing in a cinema environment. An anti-reflective coating has been applied to the back of the lens for additional overall image quality by reducing scattered light, glare and blue light.” Luxist reports that Gucci’s 3D glasses will be sold at Gucci boutiques in the U.S. next month for $225. The new glasses will be part of Gucci Eyeweb Collection, and produced under license by Safilo Group.
The guys over at Gucci have hired Frank Miller (Sin City, 300, The Spirit) to helm a new television commercial to promote Gucci Guilty — apparently the new fragrance for her. The Frank Miller spot stars Chris Evans of the Fantastic Four films and Evan Rachel Wood from HBO’s True Blood with music provided by Friendly Fires. This is just a tease but the Frank Miller aesthetic, seen onscreen in “Sin City” and “Spirit,” is on full display here.
The House of Gucci has come out with a new collection of “heritage” aviator sunglasses. The three new models (unisex 1627/S, men’s 1622/S, and women’s 3108/S) all feature the red and green Gucci stripe and “G” logo on both temples. The sunglasses come with a special edition leather case and carrying pouch and the case has a wide signature stripe while the pouch has a matching strap.
