On the heels of Gucci's triumph with its first online exclusive capsule collection on Net-a-Porter — the pieces sold out like hotcakes in less than a day — the luxury mammoth is set to roll out yet another eccentric digital storm.
As you can expect from Alessandro Michele, the Gucci Garden isn't your typical bed of roses. Thronged with the flora and fauna creations of the house's design lexicon, it's probably the only garden where you'll race to nab the variegated bees and snakes. The key motifs of the collection sees the signature king snake and bumblebee adorned in brushstrokes of diverse blooms. Fan favourites such as the pleated skirt, reversible bomber jacket, Dionysus bag (in three sizes), slip-on mules, and patched denim flares are emblazoned with the new patterns for a quirky makeover any Gucci girl would covet.
But here comes the bad news: The collection will only be available in countries where Gucci runs its e-commerce site. Translation: Singapore is excluded. Your best bet? Get a friend from Down Under — the only country in our region where Gucci Garden is available — to ship your purchases back here for you. When there's a will for Gucci, there's always a way.
The Gucci Garden collection will be available on Gucci.com from 5 July.
