What better way to start National Handbag Day than to kick it off at a private event held inside the Gucci store?!
Celebrating 10 years of professional styling and fashion event production, The Styling Closet’s 10th anniversary party was nothing short of amazing. The invite only event took place inside the Somerset Collections this past Sunday. The champagne and hor d'oeuvres were flowing and so was the fashion. We were given exclusive access to try on the latest Fall/Winter collection-You know the same collection Beyoncé and Baby Blue have been wearing!
Gucci has long been an iconic fashion stable and symbolism of elite style and status with its recognizable signature “GG” monogram. However the Italian fashion house has gotten an updated look with designer Alessandro Michele joining the team in 2015. The street-wear influenced collection has garnered much praise and anticipation for every new piece that hits stores. Perhaps the most popular collection at the moment is a collaboration with Brooklyn-residing, Olympic snowboarder turned graffiti artist Trevor Andrew. He’s better known by his alias, #GUCCIGHOST. (Did you know that he got the nickname from his last-minute Halloween costume that resulted in him cutting two holes in his Gucci bed sheets for the fiercest ghost costume one has ever seen? Fancy, right?!)
The collection takes his graffiti style Gucci logo that he formally painted on buildings all over New York City and places it on some of Gucci’s finest bags and shoes. The juxtaposition between edgy street-art and luxury materials gives an insight into the direction the fashion house is headed. The latest collaboration collection with GucciGhost should be arriving in stores literally any moment now- and you’ll be lucky to get your hands on it!
The evening ended with a champagne toast to Latrice D, owner of The Styling Closet for 10 years of fashion and fabulousness. If you’re ever in need of personal styling, closet re-vamps or personal shopping, The Styling Closet has you covered. They’ll even it bring fashion to your doorstep so that you can shop the latest Gucci collection in the comfort of your own home!
Thank you to The Styling Closet and Gucci Somerset Collection team for providing a great evening of food, fun and fashion; my favorite F words!
Until Next Time….
