Doing my rounds in town yesterday I spotted these at Gucci Takashimaya Departmental Store. Part of the Fall-Winter 2010 Womens Gucci collection, the Gucci Vintage Web Boston is one of Creative Director Frida Giannini’s offerings that’s inspired by the 70s. Take for example the one in blue/beige GG fabric with the classic blue/red/blue webbing (shown above). Those savvier amongst you who frequent eBay looking for vintage Gucci will often come across this combination which comes in wide variety of styles from handbags to totes.
One thing I like about the new ‘vintage’ Boston? The fact that it now comes with a detachable shoulder strap as well. Similar to Louis Vuitton Monogram Idylle Speedy30 Bandouliere (SGD1650), the one from Gucci is a tad cheaper at just SGD1500.
Besides the blue/beige combination, the Gucci Vintage Web Boston also comes in a beige/ebony GG fabric combination with green/red/green webbing. Personally I prefer the former more, but that’s just me.
And for those looking to spend a little bit more to get something in leather instead, why not check out this one? Everything is exactly the same, except the GG fabric is now replaced with leather in brown (shown above) or black instead.
And it costs just a little bit more, at SGD1990 apiece which really ain’t bad considering you’re just topping up a little for something that would hold up to stains and spills better. Check them all out at local flagship Gucci Paragon or their boutique within Takashimaya Departmental Store.
