    Gucci is a world class Italian fashion empire that has been around for almost 100 years While there may be people in the outback or a comparatively isolated place that have not heard of Gucci, I think I m safe in saying that most of you reading this aren t included in that group I myself love all things fashion so I was immediately drawn to this book In the Name of Gucci is a heartfelt memoir penned by Patricia Gucci, Aldo Gucci s daughter Between these pages, Patricia Gucci tenderly recollects [...]

    Patricia Gucci diplomatically tells her parents story Today, our sympathies are with Bruna Palumbo, but in 1958, the advances Aldo Gucci made on his vulnerable young employee were viewed very differently Bruna surely had mixed emotions about her debonair and wealthy boss as she saw Aldo Gucci s temper flare over things like a finger print on a display case, but her fianc had no better self control It was a time and place where adultery and or divorce had big consequences, so, after the inevitabl [...]

    Patricia Gucci is the daughter of the late Aldo Gucci yes, that Aldo Gucci and Aldo s long time mistress, Bruna Ms Gucci would have you think that her parents story is a love story for the ages I m not so sure From when I m sitting, in the year 2016, it appears to be of a story of sexual harassment on the part of 53 y.o Aldo Gucci against his 20 y.o secretary, Bruna In spite of what Gucci wrote, and she did her best to spin it, I can t help but feel that Bruna was essentially forced into the re [...]

    I am always on the lookout for a good memoir by a female author who has lived an interesting life, and I very much enjoyed this book by Patricia Gucci The book is well written, and is clever in the way it tells the life of Patricia s parents and grandparents in a very personal way, weaving their stories with sections about how the history affected her personally I felt connected to Patricia as well as her family throughout the book, and she managed to tell a decades long story with warmth and pe [...]

    I enjoyed the memoir Patricia Gucci wrote about her life Patricia was born with the Gucci name and her father was Aldo Gucci, the head of the Gucci family business However, her mother, Bruna, was not his wife and he was not able to divorce to legally marry her The reader can image the difficult decisions that they made and see the consequences of them The book spans several decades and you see the ups and downs of relationships and the effects of extended family dynamics on the Gucci business Th [...]

    I loved this book It s a love story, a rags to riches story of an Italian family who went from struggling working class to becoming masters of a global empire It s the story of loyalty, family dysfunction and family betrayal over a span of almost 100 years from the time when grandfather Guccio Gucci was a page at the Savoy hotel in London in the late 1800s to the 1990s when his son Aldo Gucci, mastermind of the Gucci corporation, died in Rome The story of the Gucci family and the love affair bet [...]

    Patricia Gucci was the illegitimate daughter of Aldo Gucci, the man who created the luxury Gucci brand In her memoir, she talks about her unconventional upbringing at a time when her parents could have been thrown in jail for adultery She talks about her troubled relationship with her mother, who was often dealing with her own emotional problems Her father wanted his sons to inherit the family company, but their reckless behavior led to its downfall An interesting book, even if you don t have a [...]

    This book is a rare opportunity for us to get insight to a man, Aldo Gucci who built the Gucci empire through his daughter s eyes It is not only a book about the struggles of life love, family, deceit but how to overcome them and still lead in spirit after you lose everything It also reflects the strength needed to be married to and a child of a man bigger than life.

    HastyBookList I selected In The Name of Gucci by Patricia Gucci for my student reading group this semester So far it has inspired discussion of the ethics of fast fashion, what makes a successful brand, the pros and cons of luxury fashion, the history of fashion, and I m looking forward to one discussion with my students on the final chapters of this book before moving on to our next one I loved hearing the story of Aldo Gucci, the making of the Gucci brand, and the love of Aldo s life, Bruna, [...]

    Aldo and Bruna s love is kind of one of a kind.It s a great memoir from personal point of view The last 30 35 page is a little bit emotional and that s what makes it a great memoir book It doesn t really stunning but it s not from a miracle writer s pen, but it doesn t really have to be from it, because that would make it a make up story.And it is not that.You can read it once in a summer afternoon if you re interested in fashion and biographys.

    This book was an interesting enough, but seemed to mostly be a poor little rich girl story.

    This memoir was so beautiful Patricia was honest, sincere, and entertaining I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this book I have for years been fashion obsessed, and learning some of the personal ins and outs of one of the industry s biggest names was really cool I want to read books like this Currently, I m on the hunt for something similar about Valentino If you love fashion, romance, history, dysfunctional families, or unique behind the scenes takes on business, this book is for you I also [...]

    This book may tell you things about Gucci which internet would not All the hush hush about the empire being built and turning to ashes have been very diplomatically portrayed by Patricia, Aldo Gucci s daughter from a secret wife Why to read fiction when you have such dynasties with such turn of events in real With all the elements of a family drama, I do foresee a movie based on this memoir.

    I liked it The author was not complaining or wallowing in self pity about her life, she just told it as it was.
