Dive Into the World of Bjork in Gucci Garden
The fashion house expands its creative space project with a tribute to the Icelandic singer and the latest capsule collection developed with artist Isabella Cotier.
Gucci has unveiled two new halls in its Gucci Garden in Florence, which will host presentations and installations by different artists on rotation. The first exhibition is dedicated to the brand’s collaboration with Bjork for the artist’s “The Gate” music video. It feels a tad inappropriate to call ‘a dress’ the luminescent creation made of iridescent PVC, organza, crepe de chine and silk jersey, which took 550 hours to make and 320 hours to embroider. This attire that Bjork donned in the video and a second gown crafted in organza and tulle, are showcased in the space, along with a selection of books related to the video, Bjork, and Iceland, as well as a range of accessories.
In addition to the exhibition area, Gucci Garden also includes a restaurant and a store, carrying an exclusive, limited-edition selection of the brand. Exclusively for the store, London-based artist Isabella Cotier developed a capsule collection, embellished with eccentric Florentine characters in the city’s cafes, markets, and streets.
Gucci在佛罗伦萨的古奇花园（Gucci Garden）推出了两个新展厅，轮流展览不同的艺术家。第一个展览致力于该品牌与Bjork合作的艺术家的The Gate音乐视频。把发光装置称为“裙子”似乎有些不恰当，这种发光体是由彩虹色的PVC、透明硬纱、绉纱和丝织物制成，制作耗时550小时，装饰耗时320小时。Bjork在视频中穿的这套服装以及用透明硬纱和薄纱制作的第二件礼服，以及与视频、Bjork和Iceland相关的书籍以及一系列配饰都在展示之内。
除展览区域外，Gucci Garden还包括一家餐厅和一家商店，提供该品牌的独家限量版。伦敦艺术家Isabella Cotier专门为这家商店开发了一个胶囊系列，在这个城市的咖啡馆、市场和街道，饰以佛罗伦萨古怪的人物。
