Gucci were the label of 2017 – no doubt about it – and it looks like the high fashion label’s continuing their global style domination in 2k18, since they just opened the doors to their swish as hell fine dining restaurant, Gucci Osteria.
The restaurant is based in Florence, Italy, and forms part of their ‘Gucci Garden‘, an exhibition space run by the brand. It’ll be operating all day, and the menu was overseen by Michelin Star chef Massimo Bottura, and features mouth-watering stuff like parmigiano reggiano tortellini and pork belly buns.

The restaurant looks over the very popular and beautiful Piazza della Signoria, and officially opened today – so if you’ve got a Florence trip in the works this year, you should absolutely hit it up. Especially since the dishes aren’t even ridiculously priced – most are 20-30 euros.
Inside the historic Palazzo della Mercanzia, which housed the Gucci Museo, the House debuts the #GucciGarden. Conceived by creative director #AlessandroMichele, the space featuring gallery rooms, a store and a restaurant is a hypnotic territory where the visitor can choose whether to drift and let themselves fall into this new world or look intently to examine the surrounds. #GucciGarden is open to the public from January 10th.
The exhibition centre also includes a cinema room and market-style boutique.
A look inside the bazaar-like store featuring products exclusively designed for the #GucciGarden in Florence. From special material pieces to several one-of-a-kind creations, all products feature a distinctive label and come in packaging exclusive to this store. The retail space is designed to respect and celebrate the original architecture of Palazzo della Mercanzia. A first room dedicated to ready-to-wear, accessories and #GucciDécor features a colour scheme that combines a burnt yellow for the plaster walls with tongue red to pick out the architectural forms of arched doorways and windows. The floor is of hand-aged marble tiles. Discover more through link in bio. #AlessandroMichele Gucci Garden store opening hours: 10.00 – 19.30
