Following the success of Gucci’s first capsule collection with Net-A-Porter which saw the most desirable pieces selling out in less than a day, Gucci’s back with another limited edition capsule collection that will only be sold exclusively online via Gucci.com.
Simply known as the Gucci Garden collection (just take one quick look at the print and you’ll figure it out), the collection will only be available in countries where Gucci offers e-commerce, and in our part of the world that means Australia, Japan and Korea. Still, if you want something bad enough, I’m sure you’ll find a way, even if it means sucking up to an overseas colleague you’d rather not owe any favours to. But for the sake of Gucci, it’s worth it, right?
Besides the Dionysus bag that will come in 3 sizes, there’s also a zip-around wallet, along with the shoes, one a sneaker, the other a pair of mules that come adorned with another Gucci signature, the Horsebit buckle. There will also be a selection of RTW, from a reversible zip-up bomber jacket in silk twill to skirts that come pleated in silk crêpe de chine. There are shorts, there are dresses, there’s even a cardigan, all essential wardrobe staples that will help you become the Alessandro Michele’s quintessential Gucci girl of today.
For more information on what’s available and their prices, do check out Gucci.com on 5 July 2015, but remember to act fast because it will probably all sell out pretty fast again.
Update: 1 July 2016
It’s the first day of July, and I don’t know if it is a technical glitch or what, but I’ve been alerted by one of my readers (thanks, Jessica!) that the #GucciGarden collection is now available online for purchase. For those of you eyeing the online-exclusive Dionysus, they come in 3 sizes and are priced at GBP1100, GBP1470 and GBP1630 respectively. The long wallet retails for GBP410 while the sneakers and the mules are priced at GBP355 and GBP410 respectively.
And if you really want something but don’t have an overseas colleague/friend/relative to grovel to, use Borderlinx. In other words, shop online via Gucci’s UK site (just change the country setting to the United Kingdom), get it sent to Borderlinx and finally have them reship back to Singapore. Like I always say, when there’s a will, there’s surely a way. #happyshopping
