Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you would have surely spotted Disney’s beloved Donald Duck making a cameo in Gucci’s current Spring-Summer 2017 collection. Why Donald, you ask? Gucci doesn’t say, but given how eclectic and idiosyncratic Alessandro Michelle has been at Italian luxury house since he took over the design helm, is it really any surprise?
Appearing on a multitude of pieces from the menswear collection, from RTW to bags and accessories, it is this pair of Horsebit leather loafers that takes the cake, with a pair of appliqués on either shoe, one of a lobster, the other of Donald Duck. Why this unusual combination? Nobody really knows, but the truth of the matter is this. Your inner kid will rejoice at the opportunity to relive those childhood days, while your adult mature self will appreciate a pair of functional working shoes that comes complete with a sense of humour.
Priced at SGD2130, it is now available at Gucci boutiques in Singapore, along with a selection of other Donald Duck-themed pieces.
