I’ll be frank. I wasn’t exactly impressed when I first spotted this pair of floral-print leather shoes from S/S14 Gucci online. Despite having always loved florals, while the print was interesting on this perforated leather and rubber-soled number, it looked a tad dull. Which I thought was odd given how it’s all bright colours and big hues as far as this season is concerned.
In real life, however, it’s completely the reverse. Definitely not as muted as what you’re seeing above, there’s a vibrance of reds and pinks in the form of exotic blooms along with lashes of blue and green, making it a pair that while is mostly made up of floral prints, isn’t at all that feminine as well.
In other words, this pair, along with the other floral-accented pairs of shoes, RTW and other accessories that are all the rage this season at Gucci, are ripe for the picking as far as the men are concerned. And if you have to own this pair (which I should add are extremely comfortable as well), it’s priced at SGD810 and available via Gucci Marina Bay Sands, Paragon or within Takashimaya Department Store. Or check out Mr Porter online for a quick glance at what’s in from S/S14 Gucci.
