Gucci opens Tom Ford rooms at its museum
Homage to the influencer
Luxury fashion house Gucci has unveiled two rooms at the Gucci Museo that pays homage to fashion designer Tom Ford. A former creative head of the maison, Ford was largely credited with Gucci's success in the '90s and early 2000s and is often seen as the man responsible for shaping the brand into the fashion giant it is today.
The two rooms are divided into apparel and accessories. The ready-to-wear space is totally clad in red, along with the mannequins. Each look in the apparel room has been curated by Gucci's current Creative Director Alessandro Michele, a protégé of Ford's, and reflects the essence of style during the time. Michele explains that the new additions to the museum will allow people to look back at the influence Ford had on self-expression. Meanwhile, the accessories room presents iconic pieces including bags and shoes displayed in glass cases, to emphasise their historical importance in the world of fashion.
The Gucci Museo is located at at Piazza della Signoria, Florence, Italy.
