If you join the rest of the world watching Gucci house This weekend, you certainly know Patrizia Reggiani has a penchant for the theater. I mean, on the day her ex-husband was shot – by the killer she hired – there was a single word entry in her diary: “Paradeisos.”
It’s Greek for “heaven,” and what I mean is that this woman has an incredible sense of drama. But while the film details the events leading up to Maurizio Gucci’s murder and the Italian socialist’s 29-year prison sentence, what it does not include what Reggiani did after she was released from prison. Naturally, I was curious about this. What does a woman like this do for a living after all that history?
Looks like Reggiani wondered the same thing. When she was pardoned in 2011, on the condition that she find a job, she decided she’d rather go to prison: “I’ve never worked in my life and I certainly wouldn’t start now,” she said. Milan court.
But by 2014, after serving her 17-year sentence, she seemed to have had a change of heart. She agreed to start working for Milanese jewelry Bozart, a brand known for its chic and flamboyant jewelry, and released a line of handbags and jewelry a few months after being released from prison.
Collection, inspired by her pet parrot “Bo,” which is quite in keeping with Bozart’s aesthetic (in that a lot). But other than that, it looks to me like exactly what someone from a specific Reggiani background could make:

The company, is back much better when it comes to big, messy earrings and rhinestone dog collar still in vogue, seems to have hired the so-called “Black Widow” as a way to garner PR interest. It doesn’t really work. Bozart declined to comment on this story, but its co-owner, Alessandra Brunero, has said that being Reggiani’s de facto minder – tasked with making sure the social network sticks with the amnesty and rebuilding her life – no big deal. (“Oh, mama, it’s not easy,” she exclaimed NS Guardians in 2016.)
In the same story, Brunero explains that Reggiani spent most of her workday consulting on design and reading fashion magazines, while the store’s other co-owner, Maurizio Manca, added that the employee parakeet-inspired necklace was a huge success. However, it did not receive any press coverage, which Manca asserts was because “someone at Gucci” apparently asked journalists not to publish. (ONE coarse The Italian fashion editor has a different view: “The fashion world probably doesn’t like parrot designs.”)
And speaking of parrots, what happened to Bo? The good news is that the bird muse has still been spotted riding on its owner’s shoulders as she roams around Milan, where she currently lives as a free woman, possibly on millions of dollars from her ex-husband’s estate, she was awarded in court.
It’s unclear if she still advises Bozart, and although I’ve scoured eBay Italia and other unfamiliar sites, I haven’t been able to find a single sample from the collection. I suppose that means all we have left in this little piece of Gucci’s history are a few photographs, which I now offer to those of you who are obsessed with everything. aspects of this thrilling, murderous woman’s life:
