Gucci’s most iconic motifs, the Flora pattern has inspired this unique capsule collection of sunglasses for spring.
Like each of the five new fragrances in The Flora Garden collection, the colors of the different blooms from the historic print translate into five sunglass shades: a gorgeous gardenia green, a generous violet, a glorious mandarin yellow, a gracious tuberose pink and a glamorous light magnolia blue.
DID YOU KNOW...
The story of the Flora motif began in Milan in 1966, when Prince Ranieri of Monaco brought his wife to the Gucci boutique. Roldolfo 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 sumptuos, multi-hued, flowered template destined to become a design classic.
