An evening shower drenched Crosby Street last night as invited guests filtered along the “black” carpet for GUCCI Icon-Temporary’s grand opening party. Hosted by GUCCI Creative Director, Frida Giannini, and collaborator, DJ Mark Ronson, the event saw celebrities and Gucci fans from model Poppy Delevingne, actress Mischa Barton, Claire Danes, Evan Rachel Wood, and singer Wyclef Jean. Making an appearance was R&B Diva Mary J. Blige, who also has a special project with Gucci in benefiting Blige’s charity, Foundation For the Advancement of Women Now (FFAWN).
The GUCCI Icon Temporary – Pop-Up Sneaker Store will open 7 days a week for the next 2 weeks before moving on to Miami’s Design District next month, coinciding with the art festival Art Basel Miami Beach. Then onward to London before ending next Spring in Tokyo.
