Gucci Explodes with Jacquard and Brocade Bags

Categories:Other Brands

It’s completely jarring.
gucci-jacquard-brocadeI can’t quite scratch my head hard enough. And I find myself squinting over the selection. We love the Sylvie bag, the GG Marmont, the backpacks, sure. The appliqués are beautiful, and always interesting. Painted-on leather was daring and ground breaking. At that time it was such a refreshing break from all the ultra luxe silent sophistication that every brand’s been producing. But as one scrolls through the many interesting offerings of Gucci, there’s gotta be a show stopper. And it could either make you want to step back and go out for a breather, or perhaps draw you further in.

Recent new bag variations have popped up Gucci’s world, in full jacquard or brocade fabric. It’s a bit polarizing in my humble opinion. I can see others are going to love it, and I can see others who are going to be put off by it.

So let me invite you to look at the bags that make me squint and rub my eyes. What do you think about them? For me it’s a bit overwhelming. Or am I the only one? Sound off in the comments.

When we say ‘max’, we literally mean ‘max’ – on every spot possible, Gucci has put a pearl on it. When slinging this on your shoulder, it’s very notable and attractive. Your audience will be fascinated by the amount of shine these pearls give you.

The chain is large and stealing the spotlight. Imagine carrying such boyish chain on your shoulder bags – the evening is all about you.

Cherries on your pumps? Yes please! But there is more going on than that…

The Gucci Bamboo Cherry Pumps are crafted with the House’s iconic bamboo on the heels – such a fabulous addition can only be made by this Italian designer brand. The defining feature is on the toe, which is embellished with two three-dimensional cherries with encrusted crystals (Shine on!).

While the shape of the pumps are beautiful and the shoes itself comfortable, a heart motif can be found at the insole, sewn directly into the leather.

It’s never wrong to invest in shoes and especially timeless-pairs. So get these, available in two different color; black and light blue, priced at $1100 USD, €890 euro, £725 GBP via Gucci boutiques.

Cruise 2017 Womens Gucci: Meet GG Marmont, Sylvie & The Snake Print Messenger

Categories:Other Brands


If you guys can recall, I was recently in Tokyo on the good grace of Gucci for their #Gucci4Rooms exhibition, part of the Italian luxury house’s ongoing efforts to meld the world of art and fashion as imagined by Creative Director Alessandro Michele. And boy, what an experience it was, with 4 different artists including famed graffiti artist Trouble Andrew each creating their own special room that was playful, interactive and sometimes overwhelming, but in the best possible way.

And during our downtime (and after indulging in fresh sashimi at the famed Tsukiji fish market, snagging another Snorlax on the way back to the hotel and copious amounts of shopping), I hooked up with Hong Kong-based fashion photographer Harrison Tsui for a quick jaunt around the backstreets of Jingumae to shoot 3 of Gucci’s Cruise 2017 bags you have to know about (and hopefully buy for yourself).

First up (and no stranger to this blog) is the GG Marmont (shown above) that’s been embellished with gold studs and pearls for Cruise 2017. Measuring almost 26 cm across by 16 cm, don’t belittle its small size; this darling packs a lot and its long sling means you either wear the bag long (and across the body) or looped over twice for carrying on the shoulder. Priced at SGD3390, you can also follow this link to see the other regularGG Marmont bags (sans pearls and studs) that are also available in Singapore now.


Another beauty worth a second look is this, the Cruise 2017 Sylvie that’s an ode to English vintage. Sporting a top handle on a light baby blue leather body that’s decorated with embroidered flower appliqués, the icing on this cake has got to be the gold chain buckle that runs from the top of the bag and ends in the clasp. Matched with Unia pumps that’s finished with gold spikes/studs (SGD1590), this Sylvie (32 cm by 22 cm) is truly a standout piece that’s priced at SGD4540. And yes, she comes with her very own shoulder sling too, which you can use with or separately from the bag.


Last, but by no means least, the one bag that’s still got my heart beating hard is this, this top handle messenger that comes with a stunning print of a red coral snake. Yes, I covered it here before, but this bag is love love love, measuring some 29 cm by 19 cm. Composed of grain leather (another bonus, if you ask me), it has two separate zip compartments (front and back) as well as a thick web canvas sling that’s not only beautiful, but useful as well.

Priced at SGD2350, this is one bag you’ll keep going back to, especially given how functional it is. Shown here with Vegas moccasins (SGD1120) that come emblazoned with the British flag, you can now shop them all at Gucci boutiques in Singapore, along with the new store at ION Orchard that will open sometime in early December 2016.

So, what would it be for you? The sexy GG Marmont sling with pearls and studs, the elegantly ladylike Sylvie or my own personal favourite, the snake print messenger?
