PALM BEACH JUBILEE: Gucci may be feting its 90th anniversary worldwide, but its Palm Beach presence doesn’t look a day over 50. That’s how long the house has held an address on the island, which it has commemorated with an exclusive New Bamboo bag in pale pink leather, as well as a scarf depicting its former boutique at Via Gucci before relocating to its slick space in 150 Worth.

Longtime local client Arlette Gordon was first to order both. At its birthday bash on Monday, she recalled Aldo Gucci’s hands-on service and mischievous humor. “He threatened to sue me for having their double-G logo on my dining room ceiling. I cried it stands for Gordon,” she said, as an on-site artisan embossed her purchase. Palm Beach is one of four U.S. stops for the mini-workshop, where a team from Italy stitched and embellished more than a dozen bags and wallets in two days.
