It’s all Gucci

For Easter weekend I took a trip down to the beautiful city of Florence, Italy. The weekend was filled with amazing food, beautiful sights and even an unexpected trip to the Gucci Museo, a three-floor museum dedicated to the legendary Italian designer. This museum featured all facets of the designer’s career and started off off with the 20th century baggage that gave him his start in the fashion world.

There were also daytime dresses, many of which featured the Gucci monogram on the fabric.IMG_0071Day dresses with the Gucci monogram imprinted on the fabric.

Last but not least was my favorite room of all– handbags. The main focal point was an exhibition of bamboo-handled bags from the past 70 years. The were positioned in an dark room and spotlights took turns illuminating different time periods, ranging from the 1940s to today.
