"In Forden's "House of Gucci", the tumultuous rise and fall of
arguably worlds most known luxury brand is laid on a platter.
Starting with the founder and his successive heirs, the journey is filled with familial contention, jealousy and an outright sense of entitlement. While there is much about the brand itself, Forden delves deep into how a breakdown in family communication and a sense of aloofness led the brand to the brink of disaster. Lo and behold, in comes Clark Kent (Tom Ford), through Dawn Mello who resuscitates the brand with Domencio Del Sole... You know how the story ends, but its what's in between that fills these pages with a bit confectionery delight."
