Frame of min­d’s gui­de to sum­mer reading

The days of lazying by the pool are upon us and it's time to get that summer check list ticked off.

We bet you alrea­dy purcha­sed the hip­pest sum­mer bikini/​bathing trunks back when the snow was still sti­cking to the path in an effort to get yourself exci­ted for the onset of sunshi­ne. But apart from the con­ven­tio­nal sum­mer must haves like: a gre­at towel, a bron­zed lover and an excel­lent moji­to reci­pe, it’s easy to for­get the need for a fan­tastic sum­mer read. We’­ve nar­ro­wed down our top four books to shade yourself with this summer!

Through a collec­tion of love let­ters, inter­views and unse­en images, Patri­cia tells the sto­ry of how Aldo Guc­ci fell in love with her mother after mee­ting her while she worked in Rome at the first Guc­ci store. To avoid public con­tro­ver­sy Aldo sent Patri­cia to Lon­don, hid­den away from the pry­ing eyes of the Ita­li­an media and his fami­ly.
