OPENING DAY: Gucci is finally reopening its Milan boutique located on Via Montenapoleone 5. The flagship was first closed in July 2022 and has been going through an extensive renovation.
The Italian luxury brand will reopen the doors of the store on Dec. 7. A celebratory evening event will be held on Dec. 13.
The storied Milan flagship was first renovated in September 2015, becoming the first one designed by former creative director Alessandro Michele and reflecting his vision. Michele exited in November last year and was succeeded by Sabato De Sarno, who joined in January.
The first Gucci Milan store was opened on Via Montenapoleone in 1951 by Rodolfo Gucci, one of the three sons of founder Guccio Gucci.
Milan’s Via Montenapoleone together with Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue have been ranked as the world’s most expensive retail venues this year, at $2,000 per square foot and $1,766 per square foot, respectively.
