Gucci Fêtes New Concept Boutique
April 8, 2019
Gucci America president and CEO Susan Chokachi joined Russell Matthews, president and CEO of Castagna Realty Co., in toasting the debut of a new concept Gucci boutique at Americana Manhasset. The April 4 private cocktail party drew a Who's Who of the North Shore charity set, thanks to the evening's benefactors: North Shore University Hospital and Sid Jacobson JCC. Clients, friends of the brand and supporters of both charitable organizations turned out in droves, dressed in their finest Gucci wares, as they shopped the Spring 2019 pieces (along with the newly-introduced Gucci Décor furniture and home furnishings collections). For some, it was their first time immersed in the new store since its complete overhaul -- boasting creative director Alessandro Michele's immersive concept elements such as velvet armchairs, industrial accents and unexpected combinations of materials and textures -- but, based on the unanimous cheers and expressions of excitement , it certainly won't be their last!
