The inspiration for this collection lies in an iconic design from the Gucci archives. The story began in Milan in 1966, when Prince Rainier of Monaco brought his wife to the Gucci boutique. Rodolfo Gucci insisted that Princess Grace choose a gift to accompany the bamboo bag she had purchased. The Princess requested a scarf. Rodolfo felt that the House lacked one sufficiently beautiful for the royal style icon and so he commissioned illustrator Vittorio Accornero to create the most beautiful print he could imagine. Accornero returned with his painting: the “Flora”, a sumptuous, multi-hued, flowered template destined to become a design classic. The design used by Gucci over the years across scarves, handbags and accessories, bursts with color and depicts beautiful seasonal flowers.
GUCCI FLORA DETAILS
The Gucci Flora collection comprises a ring, pendant necklace, chain bracelet and earrings, adorned with medallion charms. All these pieces feature the original intricate pattern of butterflies and blooms. The collection features a special “Aureco” black finishing where each piece is dipped into a gold and ruthenium bath before polishing; this treatment is finished by Gucci master craftsmen to lend a black, slightly aged effect to the surface of each item.View Collection
