The Material Boy #81
Gucci White Leather Sneakers with Gucci Script Embroidery and Silver Studs
Talk about punk and fabulous...it seems Gucci managed to pull off these 2 aspects of spring men's look with ease for spring summer 2008. The Gucci Spring Summer 2008 collection Gucci Menswear grew on me over the past few weeks. It just gets more and more appealing to me. But I can never find the items I want in Singapore stores as they usually do not bring in the more pricey and edgy runway looks. I had been 'struggling' to find things to buy from the Singapore stores. :-P Either the items were too expensive, or they dun have my desired styles.
Last Saturday I was at the store again, and I went to check out the footwear which I have been neglecting. And here's one of the shoes that caught my eye. I had bought a pair of gingham checks A/X shorts and it strike me all of a sudden that this pair of white leather sneakers with metal studs and the Gucci script embroidery is perfect to add a speck of dashing red and rocker chic to the look. I was originally not a fan of the Gucci script embroidery as it looked a bit cheap in the production, especially on the T-shirts. Maybe using it in a bigger size makes the embroidery show it's crude handwork. But used at a smaller size, it actually works! The silver studs has character and I start to fall for it:-)
I am not sure what the SGD price is. But you can find it on www.saks.com for US$550. So I reckon it would translate to Approx. SGD$800.
I think I am falling in love with too much footwear. I cannot resist shoes. Should I get this(which I know I will wear it for ages to come) or the D&G mid calf gladiator sandals(I might keep it in the box for a while questioning if I will look too dramatic wearing them)? I hate making choices:-(. hahaha. Any suggestions?
On a last note, remember to tune in the channel 5's 'Fashion Forward' for the coverage of the Gucci Fashion show I attended a few weeks ago. Was a fabulous event.
Retail price: US$550. Where to buy: Gucci Boutique at Paragon or www.saks.com
