Located in the ancient Palazzo della Mercanzia in Florence, Italy, is the Gucci Garden museum. The museum reimagines a conventional exhibition space to express the ever evolving aesthetic of Gucci. Now, Gucci Garden opens two new rooms to exhibit an installation of the brand’s collaboration with Icelandic singer, Björk. The main installation is devoted to the collaboration between Björk and Alessandro Michele for the video The Gate (2017), with an emphasis on the mystical iridescent dress featured within it. The magical dress took 550 hours to make and 320 hours to embroider, with five metres of finely pleated iridescent PVC and 20 metres of pleated lurex organza.
