The new GUCCI FLAGSHIP store opened last week in Manhattan. Located at 725 Fifth Avenue, the store is the world's largest Gucci store and the company's grandest architectural endeavor to date. The striking building has three glass-enclosed floors. The structure was designed by Creative Director Frida Giannini and constructed in collaboration with celebrity architect James Carpenter. The space, filled with radiant natural light, rich materials and the iconic Gucci symbols, provides an elegant environment in which to browse Gucci's luxury products.
To celebrate the city it loves, Gucci sells the limited edition "Gucci Loves New York" bags. Proceeds from the sale of these bags will benefit the Playground Partners of the Central Park Conservancy. This donation will go towards the maintenance and operation of the 21 children's playgrounds in Central Park. For more information on the Conservancy, visit www.centralparknyc.org.
