Italian luxury brands just can’t keep away from New York, it seems. In December, Valentino hosted a couture showing at the former Whitney Museum space uptown, and now Gucci has joined the roundelay, announcing plans to present its upcoming cruise collection in New York. (The brand has done this once before, in 2006.)
Per a WWD item today, the show will take place June 4, and the venue is still TBA. Newly minted creative director Alessandro Michele had better pack his summer-weight fisherman’s sweater this time.
