Gucci – a fabric with a provenance story to tell SOLD

THIS FABRIC IS NOW SOLD – MANY THANKS

Some 10 years ago Tom Ford dominated the fashion world, at his apex when he was the creative director of both Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent.  Every now and then he would produce an absolutely iconic work.  A garment for the Gucci 2013 SS collection from which this fabric eventually derived was one of them.

Enchanted florist viscose SOLD

ALL GONE, THANKS
