If you’ve got yourself several chunky Flashtrek sneakers and wish to swing back to a classic pair of Ace Sneakers, Gucci’s got you covered. Especially with the all-new customisation service #GucciDIY, where you can choose and select letter appliqués of your choice to be fitted onto the white leather sneaker for him and for her.
Remember when Gucci introduced its Ace Sneakers with removable patches for you to purchase and have fun with? Well, this time around, said button-on patch will come with two customised alphabets (one on each side) that’s completely yours, meaning you cannot buy the patch off the shelf, but only through your personalised #GucciDIY pair, making it even more unique and special. Choose from a variety of colours (including green, orange and pink) and materials like felt with crystals, leather or python for the alphabets that will come on the sneaker with a blue-red-blue Web stripe and heel trims in blue and red metallic leather.
Prices start from SGD1160 and the estimated waiting time of 8 weeks makes it the perfect piece to get for the new year. The other plus point? Each sneaker comes with a DIY signature mark on the insoles of the shoes, and will be delivered in a special #ABCDEFGUCCI packaging that’s perfect for all your IG shots.
If you’re planning on heading down to Gucci’s flagship store to get yourself a pair this weekend, know that there will also be the Gucci Caravan available from 8 to 15 November exclusively at Paragon Shopping Centre. It’s a special pop-up that travels around the world, for customers to get made-to-measure suits and gowns amongst other RTW pieces like customised bomber and denim jackets. However, it is by appointment only, meaning you should get in touch with your Gucci SA, or make a call to the store to get yourself a slot pronto.
