Gucci and Fiat 500 Collaboration

Happy birthday to Gucci and Italy! Gucci celebrates its astonishing 90th year, and Italy, its relatively young landmark, 150th year of its unification! Both Gucci and Italy are close to my heart as my mother is Milanese, and I have always admired the Italian fashion house.

What better way to celebrate than the collaboration betwee
n two iconic Italian brands, which are renowned both for their style, and being quintessentially Italian. (Yes, I too was shocked to hear about a collaboration that didn’t include either Karl Lagerfeld or Henry Holland!)

The celebration comes in the form of a special edition Fia
t 500 that Gucci’s Creative Director, Frida Giannini designed herself. This meeting of minds ultimately makes the Fiat 500 a product of the perfect Italian design DNA.

The car is very classic and chic, and is designed with the modern motorist in mind. The Fiat 500 isa stylish and minimalist just like the Gucci S/S 11 catwalk collection (below). It’s a combination of clean lines, and both a neutral palette, and this summer’s hottest trend: colour blocking.

I’d love to have this on a driving tour around the Italian Lakes!
