It’s an Olympic year – Beijing is hosting the Olympics 2008. For the occasion, many commercial clocks start ticking. One of them is Gucci.
The Gucci Limited Edition for the 2008 Olympics is called 8-8-2008 and set to be released on January, the 28th, featuring 8 exclusive accessories with a sporty bent and mostly China red painted.
The Olympics kick off on August 8 and 8 is a lucky number in Chinese culture, this is the meaning of Frida Giannini’s Collection.
My favorite is the Gucci Bicycle ($3.420). Besides the oversized bag, everything looks incredibly ugly and extremely high priced (take for instance the mahjong – $3.150 or the watch – $1.415).
But that was my opinion! What do you think? The collection sounds good but tastes bad? Or sounds good and tastes excellent?
