Dahil malakas ako mag trip at isa na rin ako sa mga tinaguriang garapal na social climber, naisipan kong na mag-breakfast sa Gucci. Yes, you can have a chocolate tart and a cup of cappuccino sa Gucci Museum.
It was a glorious morning indeed. You start the day breathing in the posh smell of the Gucci Museum and their limited-edition hand-bags, gazing at the sky-rocketing prices of leather goods which we normally don’t need but pretend as if they’re oxygen, and allowing oneself to be treated like royalty by the most obsequious creatures of the fashion industry- the sales-people-turned-snob-because-he/she-thinks-that-he/she-is-a-model-too.
Fashion never liked me. But that is not to say that I don’t like that world. It’s fun and fascinating. I was simply born with no style or sense of fashion at all.
But I admire the people who built this industry of senseless lust for the glamorously unnecessary and the artists who breathed in life to this avid monster.
I like fashion, whether it likes me or not. Whatever.
Anyway, it’s one of the most interesting places to visit here in
, if you’re
really into fashion. It was set up to celebrate Gucci’s 90 years of quality
service to the less than 10% of mankind. Florence
It all started with a simple guy, Guccio Gucci. Young Guccio was working for a luxury hotel in
observed the culture of the rich and their fondness of travelling in style. London
When he returned to
he put up a
workshop that produces bags and luggage of exquisite style and design, and of
outstanding quality. And the rest is history.
Taking pictures inside is not allowed. It exhibits their collections of bags, other gadgets, shoes and gowns, their designs that established Gucci as the couturier of the world’s icons.
