If you’ve been following Gucci’s Fall-Winter 2016 collection closely, you would have noticed a small line-up of RTW, bags and accessories for both men and women covered in graffiti.
Created by Brooklyn artist Trevor Andrew, aka Trouble Andrew, who first started out covering every surface he could find with his interpretation of the iconic Gucci logo and posting the images to his personal Instagram account, each hash-tagged #GucciGhost. It caught the attention of Gucci, but not for all the wrong reasons. Creative Director Alessandro Michele invited him to collaborate on a collection for Gucci, gave him free reign and the rest, as they say, is history.
What’s the end result? Besides Trouble Andrew’s scrawled interpretation of the iconic house monogram in blue with yellow stars that you’ll see on everything from bags to iPhone cases, you’ll also see more understated pieces that come with his own slogans, including one that says Life Is Gucci that’s printed boldly across a clutch. Another says Egg (the two Gs facing each other like you see in Gucci’s monogram pattern) while a third features a hand-drawn diamond, just because.
Already available in Singapore at Gucci boutiques in Marina Bay Sands and Paragon, there is something for everything for everyone, from SGD300 plus iPhone cases to tees that cost around SGD500. Then there are the bags, which will cost from around SGD900 for a flat clutch to a few thousand for a squarish hand-held tote.
