You know what else was special about yesterday? After 12 years in the country, Gucci has finally opened a flagship store and it’s located in Shanghai, according to Wallpaper magazine. The new flagship takes up two floors in the Golden Eagle Center on Shaanxi Bei Lu and showcases the company’s full range of menswear, womenswear and accessories. It joins 28 of its smaller but no less opulent sister stores in China. Wallpaper can’t help but throw a comment out about how crazy it is that Gucci’s spread out so much in this “communist” country. Funny. We thought jokes about the facade of communism in the PRC were soooo last decade.
