The Material Boy #186






Gucci Cruise 2009 Tattoo Print Lace-ups

I think the new Gucci Cruise 2009 collection is growing on me. Especially after Deluxeduck posted his new Gucci Cruise 2009 Tattoo Print Lace-ups on his blog, it is seriously tempting me. I love those super cool and quirky shoes! Love the new tattoo print!

These lace-ups come in 2 colours and both feature the same tattoo print. One in white leather with red trimmings while the other is in tan colour but treated with an aged finish (Think Berluti?). Love both versions, but somehow, I agree with Mr Duck, the tattoo illustrations look so much better against the tan coloured leather. There is a certain nonchalance and bad boy attitude with the aged look. Helps to blend in better with the tattoos. Love it so much. I may just get myself a pair when it is launched in Singapore.

Can't wait!

Retail price: US $635. Where to buy: www.gucci.com

now i think i want the white pair too. they would look really good with dark/raw denim.

i'm loving the tan pair, too. how much would this retail? any idea? thanks kevin!

Hehe Javier...the white one looks fabulous too. Go get it! But I agree with you the tan one will have the tattoo blend in better. But white one works well for summery looks! Is the white one available in Oz?


and Freshmess, prices are listed at end of my post. It's US $635. Or SGD $900. Pricey but so lovely!

i would love to find the brown oxfords in my womes 6.5 size feet. i think gucci did make this style oxfords for women but there were flower prints instead.
you have killer style. eventhough i'm a girl i can still see myself in your clothes.

i'm a bit of a tomboy anyways, well, sometimes

Hi Martha, I think the smallest size for men's is 6. Gucci may have 5, I have seen it before. Go try it. Gals can wear these:-) Just work it right.

And freshmess...we are all getting old. Hehehe

hot as it may seem, dark denim stains any light colored shoe, even if the pants are folded outwards.

and stains would be very visible with those white Gucci shoes.

Kevin and myMANybags said...

I have not had any problems like that before:-) Even with white shoes. :-) But anyways, I think the tan one is hotter!
