This issue: Then Gucci CEO, Patrizio di Marco discusses the balance between Gucci’s desire to be a contemporary designer whilst respecting its status as a heritage fashion house. This edition also covers some of the best bespoke tailors from all over the globe along with an insightful article into 1960s businessman Justin de Villeneuve, best known for being Twiggy’s manager. Fashion magazines are a dime a dozen, full of ads, overpriced clothing and glib tips on 'what's hot right now.' The Rake, on the other hand, stands alone as the only publication dedicated to the art of classic style. Named for Fiat and Ferrari kingpin Gianni Agnelli (aka 'The Rake of the Riviera'), the magazine focuses strictly on the finer things: bespoke tailoring, fine shoes, watches and accessories. But The Rake is more than a repository of expensive things, its pages bulge with feature articles on the men and women, past and present, who have shaped the history of style and 'the good life'.
