My MANy Bags News #56
Gucci Limited Edition 'Sloaney Bag' Collection
What better way to create hype and possibly more sales for a newly refurbished store than to launch a limited edition collection as a exclusive tribute to commemorate the store opening. Just as what she did for the revamped Rome's Via Condotti store, a range of exclusive, available only at the boutique, Frida Giannini too came up with the Limited Edition Sloaney collection for London's newly refurbished Sloane Street store.
The range pays tribute to London in the 70's, when Sid Vicious and the Sloane Ranger came together to define a great British era. The bags in this exclusive range comes either in rebellious Joy GG canvas bearing the Union Jack in all its glory or a more luxurious and mild mannered blue Guccissima leather or crocodile version. The Sloane Collection is completed with a luggage set, a trolley suitcase, duffel and other travel accessories. Time to rock and roll while you jet set away!
I love the blue and red combination with the Union Jack and crown symbol. Very punk brit. Though it reminds me of Goyard. The Sloaney Collection is sold exclusively at the Sloane Street store in London. Time to round up your UK friends if you want a piece of this!
Model Jordan Dunn was seen spotting the Joy GG Canvas version in the recent Milan Fashion Week. Cool for a sassy chick! Wonder how the duffel looks like...perhaps the most suited for us...the 'punk' lad.
