including thought-provoking essays, commentaries, and authoritative
anecdotes along with previously unpublished contemporary and
archival photographs. Published in conjunction with the opening of

of the world-renowned fashion house. Told through a loose grouping
of words, concepts, shapes, and moods, the book tells its story
through new conceptual forms and the free links between images,
symbols, and objects. Edited by Gucci Creative Director Frida
Giannini, with essays and inserts by contributors including Katie
Grand, Peter Arnell, Rula Jebreal, Christopher Breward and Stefano
Micelli, Gucci: The Making Of is a dynamic record of a
much-coveted brand that will be a must this season for anyone with
a love of fashion and an interest in contemporary culture. This
comprehensive volume showcases the genius of the fashion house
through an exclusive lens with inside looks into the inspirations
behind the design.
This gorgeous book designed by Arnell offers an in-depth look into
Gucci's origins, identity, influence, and innovation, including
fabrication methods and appropriation of signature materials, past
and present, and its influence among high society and Hollywood.
The book is a heartfelt and personalized tribute to the heritage
and influence of this iconic, multifaceted brand.
