An unprecedented publication showcasing Gucci as never before, including thought-provoking essays, commentaries, and authoritative anecdotes along with previously unpublished contemporary and archival photographs. Published in conjunction with the opening of the new Gucci Museum in Florence, Gucci is the ultimate celebration of the world-renowned fashion house. Told through a loose grouping of words, concepts, shapes, and moods, the book tells its story through new conceptual forms and the free links between images, symbols, and objects. Edited by Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini, with essays and inserts by contributors including Katie Grand, Peter Arnell, Rula Jebreal, Christopher Breward and Stefano Micelli, Gucci: The Making Of is a dynamic record of a much-coveted brand that will be a must this season for anyone with a love of fashion and an interest in contemporary culture. This comprehensive volume showcases the genius of the fashion house through an exclusive lens with inside looks into the inspirations behind the design.
This gorgeous book designed by Arnell offers an in-depth look into Gucci’s origins, identity, influence, and innovation, including fabrication methods and appropriation of signature materials, past and present, and its influence among high society and Hollywood. The book is a heartfelt and personalized tribute to the heritage and influence of this iconic, multifaceted brand. In recognition of its ongoing partnership with UNICEF and the release of this luxury edition, Gucci will make a donation of US $250,000 to support UNICEF's Schools for Africa initiative.

Chief Design Officer and Founder
My love for design started when I was very young. I would re-arrange the furniture and accessories in my bedroom at least once a month. When I went to school I knew my calling would be in the home design field as I studied art and interior design. I worked as a Home Décor buyer for the prestigious Fortunoff in New York for 14 years until I left to begin my design business. My dream was to one day bring my love for both retail merchandising and interior design together, and alas, Splurge was born!
While nothing compares to the experience of being in our retail space in Pittsburgh, our website is a collection of our favorites from the shop.
I truly hope that you enjoy spending time perusing the site as much as I enjoy bringing it to you!
THIS is the store I visit when I want to treat myself or someone special. Splurge has the most beautiful and uniquely curated items. The staff is very friendly and are there to help if needed ... otherwise you can look through the store at your own leisure. It's so enjoyable and I always leave in a great mood! This is a gem of a store and I love it!
