Product description

Review

"This gripping book about the empire and murder of Maurizio Gucci ... reveals the ugly truth behind fashion's most fabulous family." -- Glamour

"A business book you will zip through like a novel. ... Forden has whipped up a mixture of family drama and high finance into a tasty and complex narrative." -- The Economist, A Best Book of the Year

"Racy, fast-paced. ... Reads like a movie script. ... Hard to put down. ... Forden gets that famous Gucci bar-and-bit between her teeth --and gallops along." -- International Herald Tribune

"A penetrating chronicle of the rise and fall of a family business. ... Even by the Borgia-like standards of the fashion industry, the operatic Guccis were special. Not content with the usual familial stew of love, jealousy and greed, they added tax evasion, bigamy and, yes, murder to the mix." -- Wall Street Journal

Riveting reading. -- Cosmopolitan

"A riveting account of the talent and creative chaos that built one of the world's great luxury-goods empires--and the egotism, bitter family conflict, and incompetence that nearly destroyed it. -- Bloomberg

Fashion has never been so dramatic--and dangerous. The saga of three generations of the Gucci family opens with an execution-style murder in Milan and penetrates the world of one of the hottest fashion labels of our time. Fashion insider Sara Forden spins the tale of how a bunch of greedy, bickering Guccis lost control of the empire that made GG synonymous with loafers. -- Teri Agins, author of The End of Fashion

Glamour, greed, sex, style, and very, very good leather goods -- what more can you ask for (besides a 30 percent discount)? -- Michael Gross, bestselling author of Model and 740 Park
