Happy Wednesday loves!
Can we take a minute to acknowledge it’s now officially 1st June but yet somehow feels like 1st January! Erm can someone please have a word with mother nature and put her on the right track? Thanks!
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past year, you would have noticed that the Italian fashion house has taken the world by storm recently. There’s not one Instagram photo, Snapchat story or YouTube video without Gucci popping up somewhere down the line. Whether you love or hate the brand, there’s just no escaping it!
Gucci was one of the first brands I took notice of when I was younger. I remember my dad bringing me into the boutiques when I was younger to buy his shirts. Of course he would go for the most outrageous, wacky designs (he liked to stand out) and my love for the brand grew from there. Unfortunately as time went on, it began to gain a reputation of being too commercial…dare I say the word chav? Despite this, I continued shopping at the brand, buying my first ever pair of designer heels (which I still own) and grew a collection of beautiful scarves. I took an incredibly long break from the brand (as did most of the general public) until creative director Alessandro Michele stepped in! In the space of a year and a half he has literally changed the face of the brand and made it desirable again. Thank god he did, as my brand new Gucci Princetown slippers are my obsession of the season. I wear these to work, to run errands and most probably on my travels this summer. If anyone reading this post has been contemplating a luxury purchase recently, I urge you to visit your local boutique. They have the dreamiest collection of shoes and not to mention handbags!
So yes it’s safe to say Gucci is definitely the brand of the year and for that I salute you! *bows down to Alessandro Michele*
