Gucci Creative Director, Frida Giannini, has designed a beautiful silk twill foulard in honor of Gucci’s sponsorship of the Gucci Paris Masters, the prestigious International Show Jumping event which takes place for its 4th edition in Paris from November 30th to December 2nd 2012 and to support Amade (the World Association of Children's Friends) chaired by HRH Princess of Hanover, for the promotion and protection of children's rights on an international level.
Measuring 90 cm x 90 cm, the foulard’s unique design, marries the rosette symbol from the Gucci archives with the iconic Gucci graphic green and red web stripe. One of the rosettes features the AMADE logo. The beauty of this one of a kind piece lies in its impeccable craftsmanship. The design was realized entirely by hand using a water color method. Each piece was then hand printed using a serigraphic process. The edges of the fine silk twill, meanwhile, have been finished entirely by hand using an Italian technique.
Underscoring the exclusivity of the event and this tribute piece, the scarf will be a limited edition. The foulard, which retails for 280 euros, will be on sale during the Gucci Paris Masters in Gucci’s temporary store located in the “village” of the competition grounds from November 30th to December 2nd 2012 and in the Gucci boutiques in Paris for two months.
Gucci will make a donation of 20.00 euros to Amade for its charities from the sales of this foulard.
