Italy is a gift to us all. So many things to do with Italy are scrumptious to the human eye and heart. Holidays under the Italian sun, eating Italian delicacies like pizza and pasta, while you take strolls in Venice wearing Italian leather sandals.
Apart from France, Italy also happens to be the motherland of some of the world’s greatest designers and fashion brands. The likes of: Emilio Pucci, Gianni and Donatella Versace, Giorgio Armani, Salvatore Ferragamo among many others. Today I would like to shift your focus to all things Gucci.
Gucci is a fashion brand that originally belonged to the Gucci family. The Italian brand was founded back in 1921 by Guccio Gucci in Florence Italy. Over the years the brand has successfully come up with creations ranging from women’s wear, men’s wear, haute couture, ready to wear, handbags, belts, fragrance, sunglasses and shoes.
Gucci is a luxurious brand that is quite costly but still a worthy investment for the fashion forward. As from mid 2016 until recently, Gucci has been the fashion brand mostly adorned. Their new ready to wear collection, shoes, bags and belts are to die for.
Instead of the Gucci trademark stamp, this new collection features quite a lot of embroidery. Fur, floral detail, animal print and bamboo bag handles. Celebrities, super models, bloggers and fashion lovers all over the world can be seen rocking this trendy collection.
The fur mules, GG belt, floral print kimono, velvet embroidered cross body bag, glitter sunglasses and embroidered sneakers are definitely the most popular. The brand can now be seen in Rap music videos, television series, magazines and such. The term “Gucci is life” was even coined due to the fact that, rocking head to toe Gucci is a current trend. Basically owning at least one item off this new collection, gets you a seat at the cool table.
Of course not everyone can afford to buy a Gucci get up or an authentic designer get up.
Brands that are not as high fashion have created designer dupes that are worth your penny. Now remember, a designer dupe does not have the label on it. Rather it resembles the actual piece when it comes to craftsmanship. If you buy a dupe with the designer logo on it that is no longer a dupe it is officially a fake.
Brands such as TopShop, Zara, Next among many others are known for carrying dupes that resemble the designer pieces without the fake logos or excess zeros on the tag. Get a dupe and not a fake. If you can afford an authentic piece, get it from reliable sources such as: Net-a-Porter among other sites that can be found using the Mall For Africa shopping app. You can also find authentic designer pieces at discount shops at customs during airport stops or buy them when you get a chance to travel to countries that happen to have stores that are dedicated to the brands.
Get some Gucci in your life one way or another and feel fabulous in that Italian slay.
