GUCCI STYLE BY GUCCI, a new exclusive interactive shopping magazine for iPad and iPhone. Nearly two years after Gucci broke ground with its first iPhone App, today – as it celebrates its 90th anniversary year – the House delivers a new App experience that takes full advantage of the iPad.
GUCCI STYLE BY GUCCI is an exclusive digital shopping magazine that gives unprecedented access to the world of Gucci. Fashion, trends, craftsmanship and storytelling come together in visually compelling editorial. The App is constantly pulsating with animation, fresh fashion stories, and live feeds from Gucci’s Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook.
Available for download at the App Store, GUCCI STYLE invites users to read, shop, and share. For the first time ever, users can shop on the iPad and purchase from Gucci’s Digital Flagship Store. Every detail reflects great care with content available in eight languages (English, Italian, Spanish, French, German, Korean, Simplified Chinese, and Japanese) and a custom-font created from founder Guccio Gucci’s signature.
Creative Director Frida Giannini engages followers with insider features and hand-selected products to create the ultimate Gucci experience. The user becomes the protagonist and manipulates next-generation technology in an array of interactive content at one’s fingertips:
*Men’s and Women’s video fashion shoots – the current Pre-Fall Collection comes to life through user-interaction of models and ready-to-shop looks.
*How to Wear It – Frida Giannini shares her personal picks for everyday fall fashion
