They have also come up with personal playlists which can be downloaded directly from the iTunes store

Other exclusive content includes videos, fashion shows, latest collections, news, events and store listings.

But the most progressive feature is called Gucci Beats, which lets you mix your own music tracks on a virtual turntable.

Choose and layer your bass, drums, vocals, synths and effects and you’ll be able to create a kickin’ loop and record it to play for friends or share via Facebook.

“Apps are the new virtual accessory, so I approached the design of Gucci’s first app in the same way I do with a bag or shoe from my collections,” said Frida.

“I looked to provide the essence of the Gucci lifestyle experience in a way that takes full advantage of the technological capabilities of the revolutionary iPhone and iPod touch. Of course, Mark Ronson’s contribution ensures that the Gucci app is truly unique.”

The apps are free with all iPhones and iPod touches. Just head to Itunes to download it.
