Opulent Nonchalance

For Cruise 2014, the Gucci woman soars towards a sun-soaked horizon. A carefree allure and a modern deconstruction of the House’s Seventies codes. With her sights set on Rio de Janeiro, Creative Director Frida Giannini envisions rhythmic glamour pulsating to the tide: “A collection of all my getaway essentials, designed for an up and coming Jerry Hall beaming with breezy style.”

Hues evoking a faraway South American sunset. Materials as light as sea foam. Subtle nuances from sand and pearl, to rust and copper, through to ochre yellow, nectarine, nude blush, coral, passion fruit, lagoon green, kiwi and raspberry. Ultra reflective with iridescent silk twill one-pieces, all-over thermosealed crystal embroidery on matching tops and pants, woven lurex.

Lightweight leather undergoes new interpretations with metallic laminations for a laser-cut trench or t-shirt dress. Perforations on a suede bomber. Weightless crepe de chine and warm yet barely there cashmere. The optical tropics of macro paisley prints or stripes. Culminating with the season’s statement prints: cascades of hearts, parasols, sailboats, and beach balls, for dresses and pant pairings. Lurex polka dot gowns revealing a culotte. Punctuated by embroidered dresses evoking the reflections of fireworks over the ocean. Bravo Frida!

All three bags

‘Cut and Craft’ – the winners of Gucci’s paper craft competition are found

These bags are the three winners of Gucci’s social media competition ‘Icons of Heritage – Cut & Craft, launched on September 2 of this year. And we understand why! They are absolutely stunning – colourful, inventive and quirky to say the least.

Before we get into who made these divine bags however, let’s just briefly revisit the idea behind the competition: The concept behind this Gucci campaign was for fans to download the pattern of one of three iconic Gucci bags, and then make their version of one of them using paper and other materials. The competitors would then photograph the result and upload it to the competition’s dedicated Facebook page.

Thousands of submissions and votes later, the selection was narrowed down to nine beautiful recreations, and yesterday, Gucci’s creative Director, Frida Gianni selected the three winners.

From left to right:

‘Jackie’: Soyoung Jung of Korea
‘Stirrup’: Gerardo Larrea of Peru
‘New Bamboo’: Monia di Liello of Italy

The three bags are now featured as the cover image of Gucci’s Facebook Timeline, and the creators behind each of them will be receiving a complimentary Gucci handbag.

Good work and congrats!

Femme Fatale

There is just something undeniably sensual about the Gucci woman. “She is a polished woman with a decisive personality, who is attentive to detail and willing to dare,” commented Frida Giannini, creative director for the Italian fashion house. Flowing ethereal dresses have a sexy approach with see-through effects, while the female dandy is given extra-wide pants in lightweight nabuk fabric. For the Women’s Fall/Winter 2011-2012 collection, Gucci fuses the glamour power of the 1970′s together with mysterious allure the 1940′s. The result? Film noir in colour.

Bamboo Bag, 1947_HR

Bamboo Bag

As they say, “Necessity is the mother of creation.” Paying homage to both classic and contemporary Bamboo interpretations, Gucci recently presented the slick Bamboo Retrospective Exhibition in November at Marina Bay Sands and Paragon, Singapore. With vintage and modern Bamboo bags on display, the exhibition re-told Gucci’s Bamboo story – its evolution from merely a pragmatic solution in post-war Italy (fine leather and metal materials were in short supply, so Gucci’s Florentine craftsmen had to think of a feasible solution for their bags), to becoming an icon of luxury. For Gucci’s Spring/Summer collection, Frida Giannini presented a new edge to the classic and re-releases the New Bamboo.

70′s Poster Child

70′s Poster Child

F/W Fashion Week may be just past, but the jostle to be crowned the “It Bag” of the season is still in full swing. Gucci’s very own goddess of re-invention, Frida Giannini, aspires to clinch the title with the new and fabulous Gucci 1973 line. It’s a fashion flashback to the era of the international jet set, patronised by devotees Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and Jacqueline Onassis. The original Gucci 1973 was a chic shoulder bag which on its front flap boldly bore the famous GG logo, perfected in the late 1960s. The Gucci 1973 Small Shoulder Bag will come in five different colours, each bearing a FW 2010 Singapore Exclusive plate inside. This limited edition is only available at the Gucci store at the Marina Bay Sands.
