The Material Boy #153
Gucci Tri-Colour Wingtip Lace Ups
It's been a while since I blog about an item of Gucci that I love. No, the leather jackets I blogged about recently was an unattainable love. So that does not count. And I will never spent SGD$10,000 on a leather jacket that goes out of style in six months. For that matter, anything that is so easily off trend.
But this pair of tri-colour lace ups by Gucci for fall winter 2008/2009 is a different story. I love the purple version! Love the combination of colours. It's classic and yet quirky with a splash of colour. The nice wing tip and brogue style design is perfect for those dressy occassions.
I doubt here in Singapore, we will ever see the likes of something this 'colourful' in the stores. The customer base of Gucci in Singapore seems to be the uncles and brand wannabes who wants huge logos. The buyer just conveniently assumes everyone else follows, I think. They bring in the worst looking items of the seasonal collection. It is always a disappointment to shop runway looks in Gucci Singapore. Hopefully that will change for Spring Summer 2009, cos' that is a season that I absolutely see myself liking many things.
Meanwhile, some colour to lighten up the sombre mood of winter with this 'cute and serious' lace ups:-)
