Gucci GG Marmont Maxi

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: NET-A-PORTER

Yes, while #smallisbeautiful, there are days when only the biggest of the big will do because deep down, we all have a size queen within us. And there’s nothing bigger (or more beautiful) than Gucci’s current Marmontoffering, known simply as the GG Marmont Maxi. Measuring some 44 cm across (yes, 44 cm or 17 inches across, which is even bigger than your ex will ever be) by 26 cm, what makes it even more alluring is the fact that it comes entirely covered with glossy floral-jacquard trimmed with matching green leather.

Priced at USD2832 (or just under SGD4000 after conversion) and available now via Net-A-Porter, it’s quite simply the best bag you’ll ever own if you ever need to a) take that overnight work trip, b) carry everything as well as your kitchen sink with you on a daily basis or c) because you believe that bigger is indeed always better. Which is more than you can say about your ex.

Gucci Garden Limited Edition Capsule Collection

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: GUCCI

Following the success of Gucci’s first capsule collection with Net-A-Porter which saw the most desirable pieces selling out in less than a day, Gucci’s back with another limited edition capsule collection that will only be sold exclusively online viaGucci.com.

Simply known as the Gucci Garden collection (just take one quick look at the print and you’ll figure it out), the collection will only be available in countries where Gucci offers e-commerce, and in our part of the world that means Australia, Japan and Korea. Still, if you want something bad enough, I’m sure you’ll find a way, even if it means sucking up to an overseas colleague you’d rather not owe any favours to. But for the sake of Gucci, it’s worth it, right?

Besides the Dionysus bag that will come in 3 sizes, there’s also a zip-around wallet, along with the shoes, one a sneaker, the other a pair of mules that come adorned with another Gucci signature, the Horsebit buckle. There will also be a selection of RTW, from a reversible zip-up bomber jacket in silk twill to skirts that come pleated in silk crêpe de chine. There are shorts, there are dresses, there’s even a cardigan, all essential wardrobe staples that will help you become the Alessandro Michele’s quintessential Gucci girl of today.

For more information on what’s available and their prices, do check out Gucci on 5 July 2015, but remember to act fast because it will probably all sell out pretty fast again.

Gucci Bamboo Backpack

Categories:Other Brands

Gucci-Bamboo-Backpack-4

It was just a matter of time before Gucci came up with their own Backpack. But who had thought that they would mix the style with elements from the ‘Classic Bamboo’ Collection. It’s a clever move to differentiate theirs from the rest.

But anyways, I hope you don’t mind I use the word again: ‘they are super cute’. The size is very lady-like if you can imagine it clinching on your back. I love the buckle on the back, I love the extra tassels that slings when you are on your way downtown, I love the Bamboo closure on both side pockets.

In short, it’s a sophisticated style with a retro edge.

A bamboo handle is crafted on the top (for the moments when you want to carry it by hand), the signature is exactly how I like it – printed on the center, small and gentle.

Made from leather, with front double pockets, it comes with a flap with buckle closure and interior drawstring closure (so basically, with double security!) The double shoulder strap can be adjusted and the edges are hand-painted. The inside has an open pocket and phone case. Measuring 12.2’ x 11.8’ x 3’ (W x H x D), priced

Best Sales in Three Years by Gucci Thanks to Alessandro Michele

Categories:Fashion

The Gucci house had been seeing some issues of late in terms of its profits and general market share within the fashion industry. We were seeing slight struggles and interesting comebacks, only to slide back again. Now, we are finally seeing some major growth, with Gucci reporting the strongest sales in the past three years thanks to Alessandro Michele and that is certainly something to celebrate, particularly since the brand has been a household favorite for a few generations now. Creative designer Alessandro Michele has been doing some astounding work, moving the fashions beyond the typical and into the realm of atypical, showing himself to be more than worthy of his multiple awards won over the past bit.

Best Gucci Sales In Three Years by Alessandro Michele

He has dominated magazine covers and convinced everyone to wear furry loafers, so it makes sense that he has also turned this boat around and brought the House of Gucci into lands of prosperity and wealth. The turnaround has been slow but steady and now we can officially say that there are smooth sailing waters ahead. He’s been weaving magic slowly but surely and thus it has been found that the fourth quarter results for Gucci’s parent company Kering have seen an 8% increase in comparable sales and advancement in revenue by 4.8%, beating pretty much all estimates by advisors and analysts. It has come back stronger than ever and we expect the house to keep rising for a while, particularly with Alessandro Michele heading the whole operation.

We have generally always loved the Gucci house and its designs. Lately the looks have gotten wonkier and less ready-to-wear than we had hoped, but it has garnered the attention of new fans through it, picking up those who have been waiting for something bold and beautiful from the fashion industry.

Michele’s designs have accounted for over 30% of sales in the last quarter alone, meaning that Gucci should hold on very tight to its current creative director, for a long time coming. This will be tested though soon enough when the third quarter of this particular year will be seeing his full collections put up and available to the masses. If those sell well in the Gucci boutiques, we shall know for sure that we have a winner here.

Hopefully Saint Laurent’s Hedi Slimane can also bring in similar results, staying on with the brand, even though there are rumors that he might be leaving. It just ends up rocking the boat when a creative director leaves and often it takes too long for the newcomer to get the hang of running the house through new and unique designs meant to appeal to fans and potential customers alike. We look forward to seeing more success from all of Kering’s companies, with Gucci placed top of our list.

GUCCI DIONYSUS ARABESQUE SHOULDER BAG

Categories:Other Brands

Day 8: The Gucci Dionysus ended up being one of the most impactful bags of 2015 and there were plenty of renditions. I'm not usually drawn to ornate patterns, but the Arabesque leather pattern adorning the GG supreme canvas is what fashion dreams are made of.
