MILAN — Gucci has signed a three-year partnership with the Recording Academy, known for the Grammy Awards, to restore and preserve milestone musical recordings. Proceeds from a special edition collection of Gucci Grammy watches and jewelry will help support the project.“I really wanted this to happen, as its stems from my personal passion for music and the same curiosity and needs I share for films, too,” Gucci’s creative director, Frida Giannini, told WWD exclusively.
Giannini compared the agreement with the Recording Academy to Gucci’s five-year relationship with Martin Scorsese’s nonprofit organization, The Film Foundation, which has fueled the restoration of six classic films to date, including Luchino Visconti’s “The Leopard,” with a total donation of $1.5 million so far.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
