NEW YORK — Gucci has had a love affair with New York City for more than 50 years, and that undying affection is evident in the company’s new global flagship on Fifth Avenue and 56th Street.
The 46,000-square-foot, three-level store in Trump Tower is 30 percent larger than its former store, a five-level, 33,000-square-foot unit on 54th Street. It is also the company’s largest store in the world. The luxurious, sprawling location is, in large part, the vision of creative director Frida Giannini, who helped to design the unit, which has 168 feet of frontage on Fifth Avenue.

"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.
