Fashion museums in Florence Italy
As I was looking up things to entertain my daughter with in Florence and I stumbled across that Gucci had a museum. I had no idea there were multiple fashion museums in Florence Italy. I saw a total of 3 exhibits.
The museum was cool and took me about 20-25 minutes to go through. I enjoyed seeing modern art and clothes from the 1960’s/1970’s. There was more clothing and accessories from collections with in the last five years verses older Gucci. It was $8 euro for adults and students are free. No reservations were required. It is close to a bunch of other tourist attractions and would be very easy to pop into if you had time.
I just stumbled upon this exhibit while walking thru the Patti Place. Fashion is art and like art everyone has a different take on it. I liked that this exhibit was focused on men’s clothing and combined both vintage and currant fashion. My one take away was curating this exhibit was no easy fleet and I love that Vans were used. I personally like styling suits with causal shoes. This exhibit runs thru September 2019
This is not what I expected to see. For some reason I thought I was going to learn more about the brand and the evolution of footwear. There was one room with a bunch of shoes for the past and present which I assume would be called museum “museo”. The other rooms were an exhibit about stainability called “sustainable thinking” and focused on other artists and designers. I could have spent more time in this exhibit but my husband and daughter didn’t want to go in so I did a quick run thru I will tell you the pizza place across the street where they were waiting for me was delicious. Sustainable Thinking runs thru March 8th, 2020. This museum was $8 euro and students have to pay. No reservations were required. This was also about 10-minute walking distance from Gucci Gardens.
Overall, I enjoyed the fashion museums in Florence. Gucci Gardens was my favorite and is worth a pop-in if you have time in your visit to Florence.
