The Material Boy #210

Gucci Spring Summer 2009 Bags, Shoes And Accessories

With the full wave of Spring Summer merchandise ready to suck dry the 'recession proof' fashionista's pockets (Are you one of those lucky few?:-P), Gucci ranks number ONE in being the first to unleash its 'fresh' spring summer products online for all to spend, spend, spend!

Although, not everything I like from the runway looks are featured online, I did spot a few items that I find worthy to 'babble' about.

First up, the sudden 'flash dance' neon colour trend from Louis Vuitton's Stephen Sprouse tribute collection continues to spark my interest in all things neon colours. Gucci might not have any collaborations with famous artist, they did churn out a few noteworthy bags, shoes and belts in funky fluorescent yellow, orange and PINK! The season's dainty and dandy hip hue of colour! Love the white GG duffel with those fluorescent web stripes. Good size for weekend trips and not as in your face as LV's Graffiti bags. Maybe some of you, understated folks will hear their calling.

Second, another duffel bag in Khaki GG fabric with orange leather trimmings and web stripe details. Love that colour combination, which is classic, elegant and yet enough colour to 'paint the town red'!

Third on the radar are the 'drool invoking' shoes. I love love the white flower patchwork lace-ups that features a crocodile skin heel trimmings (or even the price... Yikes!). You are definitely dressed for summer with these on your feet. I also like the multi coloured moccasins with tassel details. Can see it work with pants, shorts and even jeans. Colours are key for this summer, and these shoes says it right on cue!

Did it ever go into production?

Kevin and myMANybags said...

I saw the lookbook for the bags, this bag is being produced if my memory serve me well. My SA did tell me this will head to singapore stores. :-)

The pink handle tote seems to be the most popular!
