Three hours of flight away from Milan — where the fashion pack is currently navigating their way through back-to-back men’s fashion shows — is the newly opened Gucci Garden boutique in Florence. Set in the renovated Palazzo della Mercanzia, the three-storey creative space houses a boutique selling exclusive clothes and accessories, an exhibition area, and a gift shop of merchandise and rare tomes. Concluding the sensory experience is Gucci Osteria, the brand’s first full-fledged eatery.
Three-Michelin-starred chef Massimo Bottura is in charge of curating the four-course menu. If Bottura’s name rings a bell, it should. Bottura is the Modena-based pasta genius behind Osteria Francescana, the Italian restaurant which was named 2016’s best restaurant in the world. Take a peek at Gucci Osteria’s pasta-laden menu here.
On the sartorial side, men’s ongoing fashion month brought in exciting new developments to look forward to. Fendi remade the baggage carousel of an airport’s arrival hall and paraded its FF logo-embossed Rimowa trunks. Gosha Rubchinskiy, who held his show off-piste in Russia’s Yekaterinburg, presented his third instalment with Adidas and second with Burberry.
From Gucci Osteria to fashion week’s best-dressed, here are the week’s must-see ’Grams.
