After a successful run in Shanghai, Gucci Cosmos has made its debut at the 180 Studios - and it’s shining a spotlight on the Italian fashion house. Drift through nine show-stopping immersive installations and watch the story of the House unfold - from the elevator of the Savoy hotel where Guccio Gucci dreamed that luggage would one day bear his name in the 1890s, to the vision behind the latest Gucci Ancora fashion show by Creative Director Sabato De Sarno. Throw in the era-defining, heritage pieces Gucci has crafted in its 102 year history (such as that Bamboo bag, to the Jackie and the Horsebit), and you’ve got yourself a fashion masterpiece.
