If you didn’t know, Italian luxury label Gucci celebrates its 100th anniversary this year. Adding to the festivities was the reopening of Gucci’s newly revamped flagship store in Marina Bay Sands Shoppes. The store spans two floors or 10,555 square feet, and carries both ladies and menswear across ready-to-wear, handbags, shoes, jewellery and accessories as well as Gucci Décor furnishing and the recently launched Gucci Lifestyle line.
To celebrate the store’s reopening, Gucci invited local celebs such as Fann Wong, Jeanette Aw, Rebecca Lim, JJ Lin and Oon Shu An to grace the occasion. Local musicians such as Nathan Hartono, Narelle Kheng, Joel Tan, Jasmine Sokko, Dharni, Shigga Shay, Jonathan Chua, Fariz Jabba and Shye-Anne Brown and fashion influencers Yoyo Cao, Mae Tan, Willabelle Ong and Amanda Chaang were also in attendance.
The opening event started with the preview of the Gucci boutique where guests could appreciate the art installation by Singaporean crochet artist Kelly Lim using fabrics from the Gucci Aria collection. The Floral Fantasy of Gardens by the Bay was also remodelled by Gucci to present a unique and unforgettable experience for the guests.
As part of the celebrations, Gucci added its centennial print on the Rain Oculus of Marina Bay Sands to mark the brand’s 100th anniversary. The towers of the hotel and ArtScience Museum were also lit up that night (November 11) using Gucci’s iconic colours to echo the Gucci Web prints and Gucci Aria series.
