Happy 85th, Gucci
appy anniversary, Gucci, you are one sexy octagenarian.
Gucci's Creative Director Frida Giannini honors the Italian fashion house's milestone with a line of handbags, luggage, shoes, jewelery, scarves and chocolate leather ponies, available only from July through December and exclusively in Gucci stores.
While they did not create a sunglasses line to mark the occasion, they are, however, offering this limited edition chocolate Guccissima leather horse that retails for $1095.
Gucci shades, meanwhile, continue to be massively popular. On August 1, Madonna dons hers outside of London's Wembley Stadium, the UK's answer to the Hollywood walk of fame, where on she was the first star to cast her hands in bronze. [source]
