When Gucci met Riva

Gucci and Riva, in collaboration with Officina Italiana Design, proudly presented the exclusive, made-to-order "Aquariva Gucci", at the 87th London International Boat Show. I was there to capture the moment.

Auariva Gucci is the result of a unique collaboration between two of Italy's most renowned design houses in celebration of the era of La Dolce Vita, when joie de vivre, glamour and elegance defined an attitude and a lifestyle.
