FLORENCE — Frida Giannini will mark her 10th year as creative director of Gucci in 2015 — an impressive milestone in itself for a female designer whose name is not the same as the brand’s. As she has evolved at Gucci, Giannini’s passions and beliefs have been increasingly channeled into the label, which today strongly reflects her stance on sustainability, contributions to women’s empowerment and education, humanitarian assistance and children’s rights.
Warming up for her anniversary, Giannini has a busy 2014 ahead — a round-the-world trip in seven months with her first jaunt to Brazil beginning May 27, followed by New York and Milan in June; Paris in July; Rome and Milan in September; Tokyo in October; Los Angeles and Moscow in November, and Miami and Paris again in December.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
