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, fromSGD300 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.
Gucci GucciGhost Bag Collection
Gucci is seen to be embracing with open arms the graffiti concept with its recent collaboration with GucciGhost. Fresh from the Fall 2016 Runway, Gucci’s new collaboration with the ever-artistic Brooklyn graffiti artist GucciGhost finds their way at Neiman Marcus.
Gucci lovers have a lot to expect from the Gucci GucciGhost Bag Collection for it features several accessories and shoes sporting street-inspired prints along with the brand’s elegant craftsmanship. iPhone case, slip-on sneakers, mules, and bags, the choices are almost endless with this fabulous collaboration!
When it comes to bags, this Gucci GG Marmont Shoulder Bag will surely be the new talk of the town! We couldn’t believe how classy it actually looks like with the graffiti print on it! The black canvas is painted with yellow stars and blue GG graffiti that look youthful and vibrant. The chained shoulder strap is one thing to love as well. The big GG logo in the center gave it the finishing touch that it deserves.

If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen my flatlays and my 102,834 wallets, which should last me 29,132 lifetimes, give or take a couple. What I mean is, I really do have many, and the last thing I should be getting is yet another wallet. And other than something small from Louis Vuitton recently, I’ve been a pretty good boy.
That was till I laid eyes on this handsome beast. Trying hard not to break my resolve is going to be another supreme exercise in self-control, but I cannot fault this new wallet from Hermès in any way. Known simply as the Passant, it comes in two sizes, but the one featured in today’s post is the longer of the two that measures 20.5 cm by 9.5 cm.
Actually made up of two parts (this one comes in gorgeous Epsom calfskin leather), think general flap clutch (of sorts) on the outside, with a removable pouch on the inside. The pouch is also where all the action happens, where you slot in your cards and your cash, with an additional zip pocket for loose change and receipts.
Priced at GBP1220, you can use the clutch on its own, the pouch on its own, or both together, which is genius because you can mix it up as and when you like. Just don’t let me see this in town tomorrow or I swear this will become my 102,835th wallet. You know what I mean.
If, however, you prefer something smaller, here’s the same Passant but with 2 card slots instead of the one you saw earlier which had 3. Also made of Epsom calfskin but in a colour called Flame, this one measures just 14.5 cm by 9 cm and retails for GBP1050. Yes, yes, yes!

Bucket bags and backpacks were really not famous two years ago but recently, they are becoming the holy grails of bags. Knowing its demand in the fashion market, Bottega Veneta thought of creating their very own version of the bucket bag in the form of the Intrecciato Nappa Bucket Bag.

Women can also choose among its four colors: peony, vesuvio, pacific and nero. The charming color selection will make it hard for its customers to choose just one.
This bucket bag also features functionality with its double handle and adjustable shoulder straps thus making it perfect to wear cross-body or just over the shoulder. It measures 28′ x 24.5′ x 14.0′ (W x H x D) cm and comes with a price of $3550 USD or €2950 euro via Bottega Veneta e-store.
