Gucci Museo

After finishing up our factory tour we all trooped back to the bus and made for destination number two, the Gucci Museo. As a Fashion History & Theory student I spend a fair amount of time visiting museums, some of which are undeniably gorgeous (Kenwood house anyone?) but I have to say that this was something else. On the outside the Gucci Museo was all traditional, Florentine magnificence. Inside it was the epitome of minimal, modern chic. We would get to spend the afternoon browsing the fash-tastic objets d’art on show but first it was time to hit the museum’s restaurant for yet another gourmet feast.

‘GG’ sugarlumps, too cute!

Several hours and four delicious courses later we set off to the first exhibit, no doubt ruining the experience for every single other visitor with our incessant picture taking. Obviously my shoddy photography skills and DIY descriptions are no match for the real thing but even so, I’ll attempt to give you a quick virtual tour of my personal “best bits”…

Suitcases, shirt cases and a hatbox dating from between the 1930′s and 1960′s
1979 Gucci Cadillac Seville
(SO wishing I hadn’t failed my driving test right now)
Floral china & ashtrays, 1980′s
Shoulder bags & moccasins in ‘horsebit’ print fabric, 1970′s
Gucci Saddles

After 5 days of non-stop shows and parties in London, one night in Milan and thenĀ all of our Florentine activities, I was pretty knackered by this point. Aided by several extremely potent coffees I managed to resist the urge to crawl into bed and instead headed out into the streets of Florence. Thanks to my appalling sense of direction, what was meant to be a quick stroll around the city turned into a two hour trip. It was only with the help of several shop assistants, a couple of tourists and a very friendly bin man that I managed to find my way back to the hotel at all! Exhaustion aside, I wasn’t complaining thought as if ever there was a city so beautiful it’s I wouldn’t mind getting lost in, Florence is definitely it.

Love Ella. X
