SINGAPORE — Gucci’s creative director, Frida Giannini, marked her first visit here Monday in a very special way — by having an orchid named after her. She also revealed plans for the brand to launch children’s wear later this year.
The city state, whose national flower is the orchid, creates and names special blooms for important guests who have included R&B star Rihanna and the late Princess Diana. The Paravanda Frida, a white flower with fuchsia tips, was also the inspiration for 88 limited edition Boston bags that Giannini designed only for Singapore to benefit a local children’s charity called Mainly I Love Kids, or MILK.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
