Running from June 25 to July 13, 2011 at the Golden Pavilion in Kyoto, an exhibition of archival Gucci bags celebrates cross cultural exchange and the importance of traditional craftsmanship. This unique exhibition also celebrates 90 years of Gucci, the Florence-based brand excelling in leather goods for 9 decades. In line with the historic nature of the objects show, the host space – the Golden Pavilion – also embodies cultural and artistic traditions.
Exhibitions honoring the Gucci legacy are scheduled in Japan for the remainder of 2011.
