The luxe Italian label lands in Aventura, bringing the best of resort season to shoppers craving a fresh take on contemporary romance.
Gucci’s Cruise 2017 collection blends vintage with nerdy romance.
There’s nothing quite like feasting your eyes on Creative Director Alessandro Michele’s epic re-envisioning of Gucci. For almost two years, the Italian designer—whose résumé includes stints at design houses like Fendi and Tom Ford—has brought eccentricity, vintage, and a touch of nerdy romance to his collections for Gucci, leading the brand back into the forefront of fashion. This month, chic shoppers get to relish his extravagant vision of fairy-tale love as the cruise collection arrives at its newest outpost, Aventura Mall.
With an interior that combines traditional and modern elements with understated glam like marble staircases, vintage rugs, and pink velvets, the accessories-focused boutique brings not only women’s pieces like handbags, jewelry, and shoes to the Magic City, but also a selection of men’s ready-to-wear, leather goods, and even children’s pieces, for a 7,000-square-foot space of ultimate must-haves. More to love: GucciGhost—the fall collab that took Trevor “Trouble” Andrew’s graffiti art into the mainstream with an updated version of the brand’s logo—filters into the men’s cruise collection for favorites like the GucciGhost Bambi high-top and a skull T-shirt that is so street, it hurts. And ladies, no need to feel left out. You, too, can get your quirky fix with items like rainbow-striped platform sneakers and creature-adorned bags (think flies, serpents, and tigers).
