Gucci Pre-Fall 2017 Velvet GG Marmont

Ever so often I ‘stumble’ into Gucci’s website just to have a look to see what’s new at Italian luxury house, one that has taken ‘more-is-more-is-more’ to a whole new level and experiencing commercial success, with its robust sales proving that Alessandro Michele’s Gucci is here to stay.

Which brings us to today’s find, a bag introduced during Michele’s tenure and a classic-in-the-making, the GG Marmont. What’s different from these ones as opposed to the ones in calfskin or suede leathers that have preceded it is the addition of these intensely gorgeous floral appliqués and embroidery that really lives up to it being ‘more-is-more-is-more’ on the bag’s lush velvet body.

Available in a Black or Cobalt Blue with words like Modern and Loved splashed across it, these come in a medium size that measures some 30.5 cm wide and 19 cm high. With a rather long sliding chain sling, it will sit nicely under the arm when looped over twice on the shoulder, or can be easily worn across the body when the chain is fully unfurled.

On the inside you’ll find silk satin with sufficient compartments lined up, like an internal zip slot and smartphone pockets which will fit even the larger phones some of us have grown so used to. Spring the flap back shut and turn it around and you’ll find that the iconic embroidered heart is still there, just a little reminder that you’re always loved, especially when you feel down.

Speaking of Loved, this GG Marmont has the word detailed with pearls, which would explain its slightly higher price point of SGD3870 as compared to Modern which is priced at SGD3390.

For those who prefer something smaller (and cuter), there’s also this GG Marmont in Mini that comes in Cobalt Blue (SGD5480). Measuring 21.5 cm by13 cm, this little number comes embroidered with crystal dragonflies and flowers, a truly standout piece that will go with most anything in your wardrobe, provided you have the attitude to match.

Gucci GG Marmont Maxi

Gucci

Yes, while #smallisbeautiful, there are days when only the biggest of the big will do because deep down, we all have a size queen within us. And there’s nothing bigger (or more beautiful) than Gucci’s current Marmontoffering, known simply as the GG Marmont Maxi. Measuring some 44 cm across (yes, 44 cm or 17 inches across, which is even bigger than your ex will ever be) by 26 cm, what makes it even more alluring is the fact that it comes entirely covered with glossy floral-jacquard trimmed with matching green leather.

Priced at USD2832 (or just under SGD4000 after conversion) and available now via Net-A-Porter, it’s quite simply the best bag you’ll ever own if you ever need to a) take that overnight work trip, b) carry everything as well as your kitchen sink with you on a daily basis or c) because you believe that bigger is indeed always better. Which is more than you can say about your ex.

Gucci Ranked as Top Brand Among Social Media Influencers

Fashion

Gucci is riding higher than ever on the earth of fashion, and it is not only thanks to its new acclaimed creative director. Ranked by R3 Worldwide and Bomoda as the top brand in the study of social media influencers, Gucci is mastering the art of bonding its refined roots with the world’s leading sources of inspirations, letting luxury meet social media in the best way possible.

Gucci Ranked as Top Brand Among Social Media Influencers


Bomoda, whose “team of data scientists, strategists, and market experts, helps companies delve into China and other emerging markets”, and R3 Worldwide, “a global consulting firm focused on improving the effectiveness and efficiency of marketers and their agencies”, joined forces to analyze 25 different luxury brands, studying their effectiveness and likeability among influencers and celebrity bloggers on platforms such as WeChat and Weibo.

Bomoda described the study as “a representative pool of those we have observed making the most significant efforts in China in the past two quarters”, with its report analyzing the “mentions, likes, reads, sentiment, purchase intent and total engagement — to form an overall picture of the strongest brands and the strongest opinion leaders.”

As for the selected labels, Bomoda and R3 Worldwide specifically looked for luxury labels that make ample usage of ‘key opinion leaders’ (KOLs) in China, such as TV celebrities and renowned socialites. The companies included in the researches non-Chinese KOLs on both WeChat and Weibo too, with Kendall Jenner being, of course, at the top of the case study, as her androgynous, urban-chic style is especially “favored by Chinese female Millennials to a greater degree than any current Western personality. This wave aligned her closely on Weibo and WeChat with ‘now’ trends such as slip dresses, crop tops, activewear and slippers.”

The report also meticulously analyzes each one of the luxury Maisons’ efficiency online, applying its criteria to more in-depth areas and case studies that are even more specific. While Gucci is at the core of both Weibo and WeChat’s rankings, the report’s authors mentioned Bulgari, DiorLancôme and Estée Lauder as Weibo’s top-4 associated brands, and Tiffany, Bulgari and Esteé Lauder as WeChat’s. Such results will likely help all of these Maisons build stronger engagements and partnerships with the Eastern World, just in time for the fashion-hungry Chinese market to triple by 2020.

As for the overall list, Bomoda and R3 Worldwide awarded Dior with a silver medal, andLouis Vuitton with a bronze one. Given the fact that Givenchy and Chanel were respectively ranked at number four and five, we can fairly state France is somewhat monopolizing the Chinese market.

Although such results are astonishing indeed, one more thing is worth mentioning.

As stated by the report’s authors, many KOLs are “indeed inefficient, but this is more a matter of misaligned and mismanaged expectations than a lack of relevance. For every one celebrity who commands large sums to promote a brand’s products but fails to generate the expected results, there is an unheralded and unpaid fashion blogger generating the necessary engagement and positive sentiment to affect sales.”

The report thus simultaneously reminds us – customers/social media influencers, as well asthem – the luxury labels, that the key to success is neither immediate nor easy. Buzzing around about a certain topic/luxury piece isn’t enough, and although numbers are indeed relevant, (positive) content and an immediate response will always be more valuable.

GUCCI BAMBOO DAILY TOP HANDLE

Gucci

Gucci-Leather-Top-Handle-2

A simple name.

Just ‘Gucci Bamboo Daily Leather Top Handle Bag’, but the bag is not as simple as we might expect.

It’s a new style from the Fall Winter 2016 Collection and just like every gorgeous bag, the name has a meaning: ‘Daily’ – made to use as an everyday bag.

Oh yes, just a reminder. If you’re seeking for classic Gucci handbags, here’s another one:

The Gucci Jackie Soft Flap Bag, you remember?

Presenting the Gucci Leather Top Handle with bamboo detailing on the flap closure. Bamboo’s has always been a part of Gucci’s history, in fact they have a ‘Bamboo Collection’ which has been around for more than sixty years.

READ: Gucci Presents Bamboo Confidential

And so the Bamboo Closure is a bit of a classic.

Now, this bag is not fancy or painted in such a way that it will draw a lot of attention. It’s rather simple and incredible glamorous if we take our time to dive into the details.

Crafted with durable leather and a bit of grainy. Finished with palladium hardware and featuring tone-on-tone baiadera cotton-linen lining. The edges are hand-painted with manual stitching. You can find a zip pocket and a smartphone pocket inside.

This bag comes with an adjustable and detachable shoulder strap for multiple carrying. But the best way to enjoy it is to carry by hand. The Gucci Bamboo Daily Leather Top Handle Bag is perfect as an everyday bag and it comes in different colors like pastel blue, light grey and black. Pick your favorite shade for the Fall Winter 2016 Collection.

Measuring 16.3′ x 11′ x 6.6′ (W x H x D) inches,

Gucci S/S15 Nautical Messenger

Gucci

gucci_ss15-nautical-messengerHere’s an upcoming new season offering from Gucci that fans of both embroidered crests and stripes (in other words, nautical) should take note of. From the Spring-Summer 2015 Mens Gucci collection that’s also featured in the ad campaign, theNautical Messenger is exactly as the name suggests, a front-flapped, dual-buckle, blue and white striped canvas bag that’s also embellished with its own crest.

What’s more interesting about this messenger is its shoulder strap, which like the messenger also comes striped blue/white but that’s not all. It’s also unusually broad for a strap on a bag this size, the oversized proportion a nice contrast that should also make carrying it over the shoulder much more comfortable.

Priced at SGD3580 for this variation, there will be more in other materials, including one in exotic crocodile that should be rather stunning. Don’t have the images for those yet, so do stay tuned for more updates to come.
