Spotlight On.....Gucci ♥ NY Collection

To celebrate the grand opening of Gucci's largest store in the world, Creative Director Frida Giannini has designed a collection of exclusive products that will be offered solely at Gucci 5th Avenue in NYC.

The first collection, "Gucci ♥ NY" is an ode to the city, where Gucci first opened its doors in 1953. Featuring Gucci’s iconic webbing, white GG pattern canvas, bold red and royal blue stripes, and the prominent "Gucci ♥ NY", this collection will more than likely sell like hotcakes. What's more, proceeds from the sale of "Gucci ♥ NY" products will be donated entirely to Playground Partners of the Central Park Conservancy. This organization is responsible for the care and maintenance of the playgrounds in Central Park. It's Gucci's way of giving back to a city that brought so much success to the Italian fashion house.
Aside from iconic handbags, this Gucci store will offer ready-to-wear, jewelry and other assorted leather goods. Here's a sampling of what designer handbag lovers can expect to find at the 5th Avenue flagship's handbag department. If you're not a NYC native or a trip to the Big Apple is not in your immediate future, then the internet will certainly afford you an opportunity to stock up on your favorite Gucci designs. Unfortunately, the "Gucci ♥ NY" collection is not for sale on the Gucci website. If you have a hankering for a product from this collection, you'll just have to head over to NYC and get it.

Queen Hobo Bag - $1650
Sabrina Large Boston Bag - $1890
Hysteria Shoulder Bag - $1295

Papillon Clutch - $695
Hysteria Clutch - $1495
