Gucci S/S17 Gothic Fan

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: GUCCI

If there’s only one thing you want from your luxury brand to be Made In China, it has got be these oriental fans from Gucci, because truthfully, you can’t expect an Italian craftsman to be making something Asians do best, right? The accessory of choice in ancient China, today it is theaccessory du jour as far as Gucci is concerned, quite evident as they wafted down the runway during the Italian house’s Spring-Summer 2017 presentation.

And because old is new again, or in this case, old is cool again, Alessandro Michele sought out skilful artisans well-versed in the art of traditional fan making and had them create a selection made up of silk supported with a carved wooden handle. Emblazoned with gothic fonts with words like Gucci and Modern on either side (another says Loved, by the way), these collectible art pieces are now available in Singapore at Gucci boutiques where they are priced at SGD570 each.

If there’s one thing admirable to note about this exercise, it’s Michele’s quest to continually fan the flames of artisanal crafts and keep them alive, where a portable USB fan is de rigueur in today’s day and age. USB fan, no. Hand-crafted silk fan, yes.

A-Closer-Look-Gucci-GG-Marmont-Shoulder-Bag

If Marilyn Monroe is still alive today, we are 100% sure that she would fall head over heels over the Gucci Marmont Shoulder Bag especially in its hibiscus red color. Yes, it’s a classic shoulder bag that one shouldn’t dare miss.

A well-structured chain shoulder bag, this Gucci beauty has an oversized flap closure completed with its signature Double G Hardware. Aside from its compact shape, we also have a penchant for its multifunctional sliding chain strap for you can wear it in multiple ways. You can wear it as a shoulder bag or as a top handle bag, it’s that convenient. The golden GG clasp also added the right amount of glamour to it.

We are also liking the fact that it comes in three different colors: hibiscus red, pink and black. However if you ask for our opinion, we would definitely tell you to go for that cherry red colored bag of a gem! Trust us, you’ll never go out of style with it.

It measures 7.5′ x 5.5′ x 2′ inches (W x H x D) and is priced $1750 USD.

A bag that is fit for a royalty, yes, those are the very words that will describe and could probably do justice to Gucci’s Broadway Chain Shoulder Bag. It’s too pretty that it might probably be a fashion crime not to own it. We are that enamored with this monarchical blue-blooded bag.

First things first, we are in love with the metallic light blue leather which was showcased in a padded chevron pattern. And oh, if you couldn’t get enough of this shoulder bag, you can also opt to buy the other color in metallic gold leather.

What more, the sliding chain strap is definitely a touch of royalty. You can wear the bag over your shoulders or it can be worn as a top handle, thanks to its adjustable strap. And last but not the least, the feline head placed in the center actually made all the difference! Talk about hearing you roar with your fashionable Gucci bag!

It measures 7.5′ x 6′ x 2′ (W x H x D) inches and is priced $1750 USD or €1390 euro via Gucci store.

Cruise 2016 Womens Gucci Bags

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGES: RONAN GALLAGHER, GUCCI

There’s no denying how ethereally beautiful Alessandro Michele’s Cruise 2016 collection for Gucci is, what with the lineup of pussy-bow blouses, pleated skirts and the frilliest of chiffon dresses in the most faded of pastel hues, decorated with embroidery, lace and all things nice. Yes, it’s like your little girl playing princess dress-up, albeit one that’s definitely more Margot than Margaret.

While the RTW can be described as ‘soft’, the accessories, from bags to shoes to jewellery are decidedly ‘hard’, all statement pieces in their own right from metallic leather booties to heirloom-inspired rings all depicting creatures of mythology. And then there are the bags that range from over-the-top feminine to a modern piece with antiqued details and a tote that’s actually unisex, because in Michele’s imagined world of Gucci, the girls and boys do dress somewhat alike.

IMAGE: KEVIN TACHMAN, GUCCI

First up, the Dionysus, which you first saw from the Italian house’s F/W15 collection. Whilst the first versions come almost entirely in GG Supreme Canvas with contrasting suede interiors (or emblazoned with a bee or a snake), this one for Cruise 2016 comes made entirely of leather, with Blooms (that’s Gucci-speak for the geranium floral Michele is so fond of) printed onto the leather. Available in Emerald Green orRuby Red, the Dionysus Blooms bags are sized 30 cm across by 21 cm (a smaller one comes in at 28 cm by 17 cm), a good size for a city bag for one on the go.

GUCCI

If that, however, is much too subdued for you (I did say the bags were all statement pieces in their own right), how about the Dionysus Arabesque? The detailed design is first cut out of leather before it is sewn onto the GG Supreme Canvas for a bag that’s not only a guaranteed head-turner but one that would work well with any modern minimalist outfit as well. Besides the Black, there’s also another in Hibiscus Red that I do think is perfect given the seasonal festivities that are coming up soon.

Next, there’s a full leather sling that while is pretty simple looking, comes detailed with a tiger head clasp that must be derived from another antique that inspired Michele. Available in solid hues or dual-tones, which I have a snapshot of over on Instagram.

GUCCI

Last but not least, the unisex leather tote from Gucci’s Cruise 2016 collection that I absolutely love. Available in a variety of sizes (the ones above are described as XL and measures 35.5 cm wide by 38 cm in height), I know that the smaller ones do come with an extra shoulder sling, which instantly makes it even more useful as a messenger of sorts.

While I don’t have the full list of prices yet, these bags (along with the RTW, shoes and accessories) have gradually started appearing on Gucci’s shelves in Singapore, so either stay tuned for more updates here or head down to Gucci’s boutiques at Marina Bay Sands, Ngee Ann City and Paragon and have a look for yourself. But let no one touch the large leather tote in Black, it has my name written all over it.
