Our relatives have never bequeathed us any Gucci (those jerks!) but if yours have, then you're in luck, and not just because you've inherited a bunch of designer clothes. The label just announced the launch of Gucci Collector, a service that appraises heirloom Gucci items. Think of it as a personalized Antiques Roadshow online, with clothes. Right now, you can find it at Gucci.com and on the website of the auction house Christie's, which partnered with Gucci on the project. [Vogue UK]
