INTRODUCING THE GUCCI VALIGERIA EPHEMERAL STORE
Gucci announced the opening of a new ephemeral store dedicated to Gucci Valigeria, the House’s world of travel, located at South Coast Plaza—in addition to the existing Gucci store there. Open through Spring 2023, the 4,500-square-foot space offers a curated selection from the Gucci Savoy collection, including a range of luggage, carry-ons, travel bags and other accessories. Gucci Valigeria pays homage to the House’s origins, as founder Guccio Gucci created his artisanal luggage atelier in Florence in 1921, inspired by his travels to London where he worked as a porter at The Savoy hotel.
