After the tremendous success Gucci has been having since Alessandro Michele took over as the main designer, now they are opening a new concept store in Florence which will also be serving pasta among other delicacies by non other than Michelin-starred chef Massimo Bottura of the Modena-based Osteria Francescana. The place is known as Gucci Osteria and located on the ground floor at the Gucci Museo , which opened in 2011 at the ancient Palazzo della Mercanzia. The Osteria will serve iconic Italian dishes as well as contemporary twists on classics for all-day dining.
I am not sure of their choice any why they went for such a loud green but because it’s Gucci, everything is allowed 😉 The design is very basic but nonetheless cozy and charming.

Gucci Décor is the latest hype to be launched this September by Gucci. The collection is very inspired by their eclectic fashion line.
From the images that are circulated, the collection so far includes crockery and scented candle holders that are produced by Richard Ginori,
Additionally, four scents for both candles and incense have been developed by Michele — Inventum , Fumus, Herbosum , and Esotericum.
In addition to the above, cushions and a range of wallpapers in silk, vinyl, and paper will be offered for those who want to make a strong statement with strong Gucci patterns.
Gucci Décor progressively roll-out globally in Gucci flagship stores, online at gucci.com and select boutiques.
Gucci notes that the décor collection will not have its own dedicated floorspace, but be spread throughout the boutiques “to emphasise Alessandro Michele’s notion that these pieces are simply another way to dress in Gucci.”
I have mixed feelings about this collection, what are your thoughts?
