Saskia de Brauw & Marique Schimmel | Mert & Marcus | Interview August 2011

Creepy, seedy and gloriously beautiful describes the Mert & Marcus images of Saskia de Brauw and Marique Schimmel, wearing Gucci, styled by Karl Templer.

Frida Giannini, Gucci’s post-Tom Ford creative director since 2005, is interviewed about her life and passions, shuttling between her office in Rome and beach house in the town of Sabaudia. Giannini shares that she conceived the name ‘Guilty’ for the 90-year-old brand’s new fragrance behind the wheel of her Audi Q7 SUV.

Gucci’s big 90 is being celebrated with the recent launch of the 1921 Collection — a line of ready-to-wear clothes and accessories inspired by some of the more iconic materials and moments in Gucci’s history. The public will see many items from the brand’s archives when the new Gucci museum in Florence opens next month. Read interview.
